A visit to Guayaquil – Observations about Guayaquil

Posted on: January 5, 2011

What I found interesting in Guayaquil is that the shops had very colourful signboards. Not sure if many cities have this peculiarity, but it has been the first time that I have noticed and since I noticed it I have tried to capture them. Could not capture too many of them as we were in the bus and I could do so only when we were not moving very fast.

Herbie in Guayaquil
 One can see a lot of Volkswagen Beetle in both Quito and Guayaquil.
Guayaquil turned out to be a city, very different from Quito. There are not very many high rises in Guayaquil. Most buildings are about 3 stories high. And one glaring difference is that Guayaquil lacks the greenery that one gets to see everywhere in Quito.
