In Guayaquil when we were staying with Brittany’s family we were also staying with her grandfather. He’s an engineer and does work on ship engines. He built one that the city uses for tourism. It was adorable how proud he is of his ship and took us for a ride on it.
The boat just went up and down the harbor. At one point there was some kind of strange pirate show we didn’t understand.
About two months ago he had to do some work and repair the engine. Everyone knew him and he was able to take us down below.
There was a fake wheel for all the tourists. But since we’re so special he also got us to be allowed to use the real one and drive the actual boat.
We also went and checked out the historic area that day where the ship was.
Not really sure what like any of this actually is.
Guayaquil has been so nice. It’s been more chill hanging out with her family since we’d got there. Another night we went to an Italian style place called Plaza Lago. It was very sweet and upscale.
Guayaquil was fun and I couldn’t be more thankful for her wonderful family for having us and showing us around.
