    Playas H3 Trail #3

    March 6 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Like the Olympics, the Playas H3 only runs once every four years. Good thing we just happened to be in town. Victoria made me hare with him and B-Flat, because he wanted to make sure to have someone to blame in case anything went wrong. Fortunately, it all worked out just fine. Street and Shiggy trail, ending on the beach. Robust pack of 9 on trail, and a few others joined us on the beach. A great day.

    The temperatures here are ridiculous. 35C at 9am.. and rising fast! Decided a beach day was in order and headed to the closest beach about an hour away to a verrrrry aptly named town called "playas" which translates to "beaches". Surely it had sun and sand!

    Had an awesome day kicking back in my lounging chair and hopping over some pretty big waves. There were no surfers here, so am excited to see what kind of waves world-renowned surf towns montanita and olon have in store. I will hopefully find out in the coming days.

    Feasted on some delicious ceviche. I had an amazing stew type shrimp and crab ceviche in quito that was perhaps the best thing i have ever tasted. This one was shrimp and octopus. More soupy and far less creamy, but very yummy too. I am not sure why ceviche back home is so different, all i know is we are doing it wrong! Really wrong. I might eat this everyday :)

    February 24, 2020 in Ecuador ⋅ ☁️ 27 °C

    Lassé d'être "bloqué" à Ayampe, nous remballons la tente un jour de pluie, on the road again !
    Nous posons bagages à Playas, à côté d'une grande scène installée devant la plage à l'occasion du carnaval. Changement de décor radical, c'est la grosse ambiance à Playas et il n'y a que des locaux (venus en masse des alentours) dont les regards traduisent la surprise de nous voir en ce lieu.
    Il y a plusieurs scènes (dont une à côté de notre chambre dans l'hostal), une petite fête foraine, beaucoup de petits stands divers et variés un peu partout dans la ville.
    Nous avons été intégrés aux festivités et aux multiples batailles d'eau, mousse et autres armes pacifiques (peinture, oeufs) avec lesquelles nous avons riposté avec courage et honneur !
