Arrived in Guayaquil
We arrived last night on a Delta flight at 11:00PM, and are ready for the drive to Cuenca this morning. A few notes about the trip here. We purchased one way tickets for the trip through Expedia ($322 per ticket), and no one questioned the one-way tickets at anytime during the process. Immigration and customs were easy to navigate, lines are a little slow moving, and disorganized. Our hotel (Hampton Inn) was waiting for us with a sign, and loaded all our luggage, and delivered them to our hotel room. Susan is a little overwhelmed by the language, but we are not having any problems communicating. This morning we are getting a shuttle to Cuenca, which Juan from Ecuador Central arranged for us, and we should be in our short-term rental this evening. So far, so good.
