2012 Cuenca Perspectives Collage

2012 Cuenca Perspectives Collage


My mission in publishing this blog is first to provide a living history of my settlement and life in Cuenca, and to provide myself and the reader with a journal account delineating my reasons for why I have chosen to settle in Cuenca. Second, the posts are my way of staying in contact with family and friends back in the states, and to provide them with an understanding of a country and culture that most North Americans have little knowledge and awareness. Third, the blog is open to one and all who wish to compare and contrast the experiences of expat bloggers living in Cuenca, so that you can determine whether or not from your perspective Cuenca is an appropriate move for you. Fourth, my blog provides another example of how expats view and interpret life in Cuenca. Ecuadorians and Cuencanos who may read this blog are especially invited to post comments that may enhance all expats understanding and appreciation of Cuneca and its people, or to correct any misinterpretations in my assumptions and perceptions of Cuencano culture. Finally, I hope I can convey the feeling of love and appreciation that grows within me each passing day for this heavenly city nestled in the Andes and its very special people.

Two attractive, unfurnished, two-level, one bedroom, one bath condos are for sale in El Centro for living accommodations, or as apartment or office rental investments.

Both condos are completely refurbished from top to bottom.  They include a new roof, all new plumbing and electrical, new ceramic flooring and new cabinets throughout, with freshly plastered walls, gorgeous wood and beam ceilings, and two-pane windows for noise reduction and for warmer space during Cuenca's cooler months.  Both condos are bathed in light and have nice views of Turi and the New Cathedral.
