I can’t believe we are in the home stretch! As I write this in December of 2019, we have less than three weeks before we fly away to Ecuador. Bruce and I have been planning this for three or four years, researching best places to retire and narrowing it down to the city of Cuenca in the Andes mountains of Ecuador. We visited the country last January and February, spending time along the coast in Olon and Puerto Lopez, then traveling to the beautiful city of Cuenca. It sits at eight thousand, three hundred feet and has four mountain rivers that run through it.
These photos were taken during our visit almost a year ago and we can’t wait to go back! We have secured a two bedroom, two bath condo that is fully furnished for the month of January. We will fly into the port city of Guayaquil on January eighth, stay the night at the Holiday Inn near the airport, and have a van pick us up at the hotel the next morning for the ride to Cuenca and our new life.
