Living in Ecuador Day 327- The chicken didn’t cross the road

Sunday, Dec 4, 2016

It’s been a quiet day. I went for a long walk along the river. The water is still low, but there is a lot more water in it lately because of the rains we have been having. When I headed outside the sun was out in full but within a matter of minutes heavy clouds blew in and it became overcast. Still, it was nice to be out and walking in nature.

Heidi sent me a text while I was walking that we needed some bread. After my walk along the river I headed to Mega Tienda to pick some up. I forgot how busy Mega Tienda can be. I stepped into the store and the cash registers are the first thing one sees. Everyone of them is filled with a line each so long they disappear back into the aisles of food. Hell no!

I decided I would walk to Supermaxi and get what I needed. I have gotten to know the area around my house well and I can weave and cut through quiet neighborhood streets like a pro. It is a much better experience than walking on the main through-fare streets filled with buses leaving a trail of black exhaust behind them, and listening to the taxis honk their annoying horns at anything in front of them.

As I turned the corner in one of these neighborhood streets I ran into this guy. He wasn’t yielding and let me know it. This sidewalk was his, so I walked around him.

When I got home football was about to start so I settled into another relaxing Sunday afternoon with Heidi and Chase.
