I was totally exhausted from the night bus to manta so from manta to Montanita my plan was to try and get some sleep. I placed my important bag under my seat thinking it was safe and as I was sleeping someone went through it and stole my laptop, hard drive, iPod and $400 cash. They left my passport and my debit and credit card, also they surprisingly didn’t take my gopro… I’m still confused with that one. I didn’t realize anything was stolen until I got off at my stop, it was too late… Whoever took it already was long gone and there was nothing I could do about it. It is my fault for making it so easy for them to steal everything and I’ve learned from this costly mistake. It took me a few days to accept that everything was gone but I know it could’ve been a lot worse and I’m thankful nothing happened to me.
