Day 1531 – 1541: Guayaquil Break

Posted by Thomas Andersen Posted on Dec - 27 - 2014

After a couple of days of good fun in Guayaquil, Matthias caught a bus to Peru. I was then meeting up with Alberto, a local radio aficionado, who I had been in contact with over email. At first we went for a drive around the city to check out the view points.

Alberto told me about his finca, a house in the country side, where I was invited to stay for as long as I wanted! The next day we were driving 30 km north along the Guayaquil river to Finca Guadalupe, also known as HD2A in radio circles.

Alberto had a busy schedule in town, so the caretaker Diego and myself were the only people in the big house – very different from the 5$ tiny hotel rooms I usually end up staying in.

During my stay I was taking part in the CQWW CW contest from Albertos station. If you are a radio amateur, you can read the full story here.

The days went by fast, and before I knew it I had been staying a week at the finca. It was time to return to civilization in Guayaquil once again.

Thanks to Alberto for the amazing welcome to Ecuador!
