Just a quick note to say we’re here in El Valle de Antón! Taboga Island was beautiful! We spent two days there at a rental house overlooking the water. We played at the beach, walked around town and had a great time. More details later.
Now we’re in El Valle which I think is five times as beautiful as Taboga (but without the ocean since it’s in the crater of an extinct volcano). We’re staying at a 2 bedroom house that is completely private and surrounded by beautiful gardens, flowers and trees. The birds are chirping, and it’s extremely lovely. A paradise.
However, I haven’t had Internet access for several days (and still don’t) and am beginning to feel withdrawal pains. :) I’m here at a small Internet cafe now that closes at 6pm and it’s already 6:08, so I need to get out of here. I just spent the last 30 minutes rushing through answering important e-mails and catching up, etc. – still lots more to do – later. But I just wanted to keep you posted. I’ll try to get some pictures up soon.
