Shutterbug Saturday: Alausi/Guayaquil

What’s up?

Here are the last few photos of my trip to Alausi before going to Guayaquil. For those of you don’t know, Guayaquil is the biggest city in Ecuador with over 3.5 million people living there. We were at a nice hotel and this was the last day where we were with Alex our tour guide. This city felt like Chicago to me, but with palm trees and the Pacific Ocean instead of Lake Michigan in terms of aesthetics.

Shutterbug Saturday: Baños part IV

We were leaving Baños as I took some of these pictures.

That pizza box is from Pizzeria Buono which has the best pizza in Ecuador. I felt proud of myself trying to order my pizza in Spanish. Even though I made mistakes, the employees were really forgiving and even helped me out when I messed up on some of the words. There are also some countryside photos with the Tungurahua mountain in the background.

More photos from Baños! Here are more shots from Rio Verde in addition to some of the shops and some of the buildings outside. I also bought an Ecuador FEF (Fedaracion Ecuador Futbol) jersey at one of the shops and you can see that jersey in one of the photos.

Shutterbug Saturday: Baños part III

We visited Rio Verde (literally Green River in Spanish) in Baños which was quite beautiful. There were some waterfalls over there and rock formations. However, some people have put their names on the rocks. Even with my limited Spanish, I knew that the sign over them said “Don’t write on the rocks.”

I certainly haven’t seen anything like this here in America.

Shutterbug Saturday: Baños de Agua Santa

Now, we’ll be delving into some photos from Baños, Ecuador!

We stayed in the Hotel Sangay which is near the hot springs in town. We looked at the cityscape of this small town which is in the middle of the Andes and the Amazon.
