Pic of the day 22 – Iguanas in Playas

On Tuesday we took a trip to escape the heat and humidity of Guayaquil. We went to a town named Playas, about 90km west of Guayaquil. It is the nearest seaside town to the city, a place where city-dwellers escape to at weekends. It has a huge crescent bay/beach, and of course many places to eat.

However it was so hot when we got there at midday, that we had to retreat from the beach to cafes and shaded squares for relief. In the small central square, we found an old tree with it least 5 iguanas living in/around it. They were not at all perturbed by people nor traffic, and seemed very happy eating all the waste food left lying about – which like the general rubbish, is a lot!
