I meet Pat at the Juice Factory and we take a Ruta Taxi to Loja.
Pat & I go to the Claro store located in the Centro Parc Square. I hand the person a sheet with all the details about losing my found that I’d Google translated in Spanish. Turns out he speaks English. He explains that Claro cannot locate the phone but he offers to lock the phone out of the Claro system. I still don’t understand how they can lock it out but not locate it. If someone wishes to use the phone then they can take a sim card out of another phone and use it in my lost phone. I am given a new sim card with the same phone number to use in another phone,
We continue on to the Mac House where, with the assistance of Stephanie, via phone, the sales rep assures me the technician will be able to locate my phone. However the technician will be in on Tuesday.
Pat and I eat lunch, stop at Diego’s and walk to Super Maxi.
We say hello to Renata and Amalaa before taking a cab back to Vilcabamba.
Pat and I walk to Renata’s to pick up an inexpensive phone I had lent her. Renata and Delores join us for dinner at Mama Silvia’s. Stephanie is there having dinner with someone also. The four of us share a mushroom and cheese pizza and a vegetarian pizza. The food and conversation hits the spot.
