Here I am with this lightning fast wireless connection, and I got nothin' to say...so let's talk about the weather...
Several myths collide here...one is that the equator is really hot, etc...another is lots of bugs and bad things that crawl, another is humidity--lots and uncomfortable... Here is what we"ve found so far...coastal influence trumps equator myths...I would say that the weather is just about identical to Santa Cruz in the spring and the fall when there is no fog. I am going to paste in a weather website for the Manabi province, where we are...Manta is the most important city, so it has the most weather stations http://www.tutiempo.net/tiempo/Manta/SEMT.htm
I believe that you will find a cute little weather C to F conversion table in the middle of the page, but just to make it easy, here is a sample of the numbers...also Google allows you to just hit a button to convert the page to english, usually...
20 = 68 degrees
24=75 degrees, but anyway that's the weather story...we have cool breezes at night, can sit on the deck barefoot at 4 am watching fishing boat lights race to favorite fishing grounds and wait fo the sky to lighten up at about 5:30...It gets up to about 82 or so in the daytime, hotter in the sun, but only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun...and...we still have no mosquitos, spiders, snakes, or flies...I know, it might be the season...but usually at these temps, bugs thrive, but who's complaining??
In case anyone is interested, here are our new cell phone numbers
As an experiment, I tried to make a call to the states, and was put thru just like I was in Grants Pass...got a recording, tho, but I know I sounded good...Will try to ring more folks up as we go along...
One thing is true I believe...the sun rises and sets at pretty much the same time all year...6 & 6
