Well here I am... So how did I find myself living in this impossibly beautiful little country? Honestly, were it that I had some overly romantic tale, when actually, I simply found myself here more or less through happenstance. In 2009 I came to "check up" on my Brother-in-Law who built his dream retirement home here. As it turns out my parents had also been to Ecuador and my mother really loved the country and seemed to thrive when she was here. In the ensuing few years we found dad in need of round the clock heath care so we packed him up and moved him to San Lorenzo. I initially took a leave of absence from my job and my sister and I agreed to take turns providing family support. As with many things in life, the more time I spent here the busier I became helping to run our little family construction and import/export businesses. So, here I am trying to have some fun and hoping to provide a wonderful vacation experience so others will also fall in love with this small impossibly beautiful country.
