This day we had a travel day. in the last two days I went to work out in the roof, had a great breakfast..... loaded up with coffee. The breakfast is a buffet. We took some fruit for the afternoon snack. Carmen and I are a bit tired, our legs are getting a workout with the walking we are doing. We took an Uber to Zona Historica. While walking around we grabbed some platanito chips with a different sauce on top. It was a vinaigrette with coconut and spicy flavor. I also grabbed a large churro filled with dulce de leche.
Late in the afternoon we took a very turbulent flight to Cuenca. The taxi driver warned us that there would be lots of turbulence. There were kids on the flight that screamed as the plane swooned up and down. The pilot made an announcement that Carmen could not hear. Carmen was very nervous and called out to the stewardess that she could not hear the announcement. I told her - what does it matter? If we are going down we are going down. She got quiet after that - probably praying the whole time. We arrived safely after 45 minutes.
We knew that there was a hotel shuttle available for us. We forgot to call to tell them when to pick us up. Luckily there was one other guest going to the Marriott that had made arrangements to have the shuttle pick him up. We caught a ride and were at the hotel by 8:30pm.
There were no restaurants around the hotel, so we walked to the Mall del Rio and ate a pizza in the food court. We ordered a pizza, and when we picked it up we found out it was a two for one deal. We ate most of one and took the second one to the hotel receptionists.
