With only a short days cycling of some 40 km in mind, I had plenty of time, and waited until the rains stopped at 09.30 before leaving. The road leaving Gualaquiza towards El Pangui was a newly paved one, and flat with it. Well, as flat as it gets in Ecuador at any rate, so the cycling was quick and easy. By 11.30 I cycled into the town of El Pangui, and booked into the hotel opposite a beautiful and well maintained plaza.
An almuerzo and internet usage saw the afternoon drift away, and another meal in the evening rounded things off nicely, especially with a cold beer! Tomorrows destination is weather dependant. If it’s a good day, I will cycle the 80 odd km into Zamora, but if its raining I’ll take another short day and stop at Yantzaza instead. So many decisions… it’s a hard life !
