One of our reasons for stopping in Guayaquil again, apart from the offer of a free bed, has been to catch up with a faraway family member. This weekend was his 21st birthday (and we remember him when he was in nappies!). Here is a pic of him at a birthday meal on the 16th February, and a fine looking young man he has turned into! We were also present, for the first few hours, at a much larger birthday party for him on the Saturday night. We took no pics at that, as we had no desire to embarrass the youngsters whilst they were on the razzle (it was a booze no food party), but we can say what a charming and polite bunch they were, whilst we were present anyway!
