We finally made it to Manta after 56 hours of travel/living in the airport! We are sore and tired. Four bags didn’t make it – including two bikes. Of all things, my bike made it. I have everything I need (if my body recovers)! The rest of the family isn’t so lucky. Taylors bike we were bringing down for him and Russ’ didn’t make it. $600 to gave no clue where your stuff is. Thanks United! Ashley has no clothes but luckily she can where some of mine.
IRONMAN is working to try and find us two bikes. They have been great. We did have one accident though when a sign fell on Grayson and cut his leg and broke his sunglasses. He has shaken it off! Tomorrow he is doing the IRONKIDS race which should be fun . He has a shirt and wrist band which makes him feel official too!
I am very surprised with how many buildings are destroyed/damaged from the earthquake. You walk the ocean and most buildings are empty like the one pictured below.
Good night all! Going to go sleep in a bed for the first time in 3 days!
