Okay, we figured out where all the alcohol in Ecuador was hiding. It’s called Montanita, and locals and expats alike warned us that it’s “Crazy!” Add the fact that we happened to arrive on Ecuador’s Independence Day, and it becomes hard to explain just how crazy. A massive town party spilled out onto the beach where endless rows of makeshift bars were doling out endless quantities of alcohol. Music and dancing thumped until something like 5:30 a.m. Having gotten the idea, we’re moving on this morning. A great place to visit, but probably not the escape we have in mind. Ha!
