  • Galapagos--Day Three 1 day ago And an early start today because of a very busy morning itinerary. First a steep, somewhat challenging vertical hiketo Darwin Lake, a super-salty crater lake on Isabela.Great views and a cool surprise—a flightless cormorant family had built a nest right on the steps where we got off the...
  • Galapagos--Day Two 1 day ago This day proceeded at a much more relaxing pace. For the morning activity we chose a short boat trip plus snorkeling at Isla Isabela, the largest island in Galapagos formed by the merging over time of five active volcanoes. “Over time” in this case is a relative term because Isabela and its...
  • Galapagos--Day One 2 days ago Wow, our Galapagos adventure was so amazing (and there are too many great photos) that it's impossible to try and condense the whole journey into one blog post. So let's go back to the beginning. After packing (guess whose is on the right)we flew to Guayaquil to spend the night before heading to...
  • Slim Pickin's 2 weeks ago Since we got back into town Friday and are leaving again in the morning our grocery shopping was minimal.

We are looking seriously into retiring in Cuenca in the next 18 months. My husband is from Green Bay, WI and I was originally from the Buffalo, NY area. We are in our mid sixties, currently live in FL - still working. We liked the Diane Sawyer piece, and since then, we've been aggressively looking at websites about Cuenca and retirement. We plan to visit in March next year to see it for ourselves, and are hoping to make a few expat friends who can show us around. Your blog is very interesting and informative. Keep it up! Thanks.

Well said Edd!! Cuenca is not only a calm place to live in or visit, it's also a place full of humble, sweet and grateful people. I was born there, than I moved to New York, and I'm currently back home, back in Cuenca!!!! I recommend people who want to have a great and pleasant time to visit Cuenca- Ecuador, declared patrimony of humanity by the Unesco. If you visit Cuenca and you need a translator, you can contact me to my email tallaringa10@yahoo.es I can help!!!
