We had lunch today at a restaurant called Chiplote. The name is similar to Chipotle in the US. Notice that the "soup of the day" is a Bloody Mary. Too funny!
After lunch, we walked 2.5 miles to Mall del Rio. We went shopping at our favorite store, Coral. It is a lot like a SuperTarget. If you can't find it at Coral...then you don't need it! Again, I must brag on the customer service that we received there. After shopping, the bagger, Pablo, an older gentleman, attempted to hail a taxi for us. Since it was the afternoon rush hour all of the taxis refused to give us a ride to downtown. In typical Ecuadorian fashion, a Coral employee gave us a ride home. Would this happen in the USA? NO!
