Finally going home late tonight. Carmen found a market which was full of Ecuadorian trinkets and souvenirs, we caught an Uber for about $3 to the market and spent about an hour looking around and picked out a few last minute small items. But it was the same stuff we had seen in many other markets or street stalls. After the Market we walked back up to the Malecon were we shared a banana split to cool off. Back at the hotel we shared a couple of beers and listed to the bar entertainers. We walked over to the Mall across the street from the hotel and bought last minute chocolates for friends, then walked to a pizza place which was pretty good.
We waited at the hotel lobby for a couple of hours before catching the shuttle to the airport, our flight would not leave till 1:40 am in the morning.We would be in Dallas by 6.30 am and had a long 5 plus hour layover where we almost missed our flight because the gate had changed and we were just not paying attention till Carmen asked me about the flight about to leave. I got back on the app and saw that the gate had changed and had to run about 15 minutes to get to the new gate at the large DFW Airport, we ended up being the last 2 people to board the plane.
Now the the whole trip is over, I am thankful that all went well, that Carmen and I got to spend this time being together that we did not get any bad weather at all other than just a few minutes on the last day. For me this is country 24 and 25 - I still have my goal of 60 by 60. Carmen and I spent a lot of time together, lots of walking and sharing this time.
