We leave the Galapagos today. We travel from Santa Cruz to Baltra, a 20 minute taxi/ferry ride from Puerto Ayora. The electricity in the airport is out, so we wait until it's up before we can depart. Our flight lands in Guayaquil, where our guide picks us up. We have a four hour layover in Guayaquil, which is just enough time to get to know the area. Our tour of Guayaquil takes us to the main cathedral, down the waterfront promenade and up 500 steps to a beautiful lighthouse overlooking the entire city! I'm quite impressed with the cleanliness and modernity of the city and wish we could spend more time here. We're off to Cuenca next. Our flight gets us in late, with just enough time to put our heads down on the pillow and fall asleep.
