A Normal Sunday..ANYWHERE (Annual IRONMAN 70.3 in Manta Ecuador 2021)

Amelia and JP VLOG 261: This Sunday in the life would seem normal to most people anywhere in the world. Days like this give you a glimpse into what life is like in other countries, and hopefully demonstrates that there are more similarities than differences.

Each year, Manta hosts an Ironman 70.3 competition with athletes from around the world who come here to swim in the ocean for 1.2 miles, cycle for 56 miles and run for 13.1 miles (a half marathon).

It’s difficult to wrap your head around the physical fitness and stamina required to complete this race. We were really impressed with all the participants, especially those with physical disabilities.

If you’re in Manta or Olón, we highly recommend South Indian Restaurant if you enjoy authentic Indian food. The recipes and flavors are just like what we ate on our visit to Kerala in southern India back in 2019. Here’s the link to their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/South-Indian-Restaurant-686619538432600

Why We Chose MANTA Ecuador (over Salinas, Playas and Guayaquil)

Click this link for priority consideration when you sign up to be an English tutor with Cambly.

Amelia And JP VLOG 258: We told you why we left Olón in a previous video. Now we’ll share why we chose Manta over Salinas, Playas and Guayaquil.

We moved to Manta, Ecuador about 2 months ago and really like it so far. It has a lot of the good things that Cuenca offers, like shopping and walkability, and the two things we loved most about Olón: the beach and the ocean.

However, unlike Cuenca, it’s warmer, sunnier and at sea level. And unlike Olón, it’s sunnier with much lower humidity.

We’ll share some comparison videos in the future to talk more about the pros and cons of Cuenca vs. Manta and Olón vs. Manta so hit the subscribe button so you get notified when we publish those.

A REAL Day in Manta Ecuador (May 2021)

Amelia And JP VLOG 254: Daisy hasn’t been feeling well for a few weeks. The vet clinic in Olón said she needed an ultrasound, but they didn’t have that equipment so we took her to the Manta Pets Veterinary Clinic after we moved here.

I adopted Daisy 10 years ago and she was at least 3 years old then so she’s getting pretty old and we’re worried she might not be with us much longer.

We just lost Alicia to old age a couple months ago and we can’t handle the thought of losing Daisy, too. Hopefully the vet here in Manta can get her back to normal!

The coffee shop we went to was Pip Coffee. It’s a national chain with a new location that isn’t listed on their website or Facebook page yet. It’s one block east of Martinica on restaurant row. ¡Fue riquisimo!
