Guayaquil and the turn of the century preservation work

We visited today a preservation park call Parque Historico. The purpose of the park is to preserve samples of fauna and flora of the area and to also preserve samples of architecture of the turn of the 19 century. The park is located next to the river, across the city. The tide was really low when I tood the pictures

There are samples of several wood structures that have been taken from the original places at the city and placed at the museum. Their interior have been refurbished as they were originally.

We visit the zoo, and then went painting. We enjoy a small lunch of tropical fruits and cheese turnovers with sugar. Yum!!
