The president announced a mandatory evacuation for the coast. We repacked our bags, having just gotten back from almost a week in Ballenita, and went out looking for transportation to Guayaquil. We got together with Amy Prisco and she found a driver to take us away from any danger. The traffic was unbelievable but we made it to the Sheraton and spent the day drinking Long Island Ice Teas in the Tony Roma’s at the Mall del Sol. Our first trip to Guayaquil – not exactly under the best of circumstance but we do our best!
Thank God nothing hit Ecuador. They said that 300,000 people were evacuated.
These guys were enjoying their evacuation, I don’t know who had more fun taking pictures me or them!!
Every possible spot in the back of pickups were taken.
On a very personal note: Our daughter Jennifer and son-in-law Isaac live in Japan and their area was spared any of the real damage. We have been so blessed with this news. Our prayers go out to the folks of Japan today.
