On our prayer walk the other day, we wandered down to the beach and saw another marvelous sight. If you'll remember last year we had lots of sand wash away, and many of these ramadas were broken, or washed away too. Not much was done, repair what could and wait for the sand to return, until some money allocated after the earthquake made this possible.

These ramadas are shade for fishermen working nets, weekend resturants for the locals to support themselves, storage for boat stuff as well as shade for tourists. Entire busses will pull up on a Saturday morning and unload tons of people from the "inner cities". The beach goers can usually rent a hammock and get a plate of lunch for a couple dollars, not bad for a day at the beach.

We are truly impressed with Ecuador. We dont pretend to be versed in the politics of the country, but we have become fans of Socialism, as we are seeing it. Our friends and neighbors have healthcare, and houses and the rebuilding is not over yet, on the contrary, it has only just begun. So, stay tuned, the adventure continues...
