Cuenca, Ecuador

On October 14th, we boarded the plane to Ecuador. We actually made it there that night. Four weeks, minus two days later, we’ve settled in to an apartment. Actually, we’ve been here two weeks, but decided yesterday to stay, since the house we wanted isn’t done yet, and we hope to save on furniture. This place is $500/month, that one only $300. It was nicer and larger and closer to Kelsey’s friends, but unfurnished. And here, we have a really great view. The image at the top of the page is out of our sala ventana at night.

That’s all I’ve got so far. Kelsey has kept a more faithful log of our adventures at

We’re just settling in now, and all we really need is a vaccum cleaner (and to get rid of the mysterious smell wafting up from somewhere below our front baño. I’ve been working website updates for and trying to transfer his domain. Also, I’ve been working on plans for my business, One Shore.

We have passable free wifi internet access from the park two blocks away. The radio tower para la izquierda del Cathedral is Etapa, the phone company, which provides the gratis connection. It’s frustrating sometimes, so I might end up paying for some. Downloads and Skype are still dicey, but using my hacked Linksys WRT54G as a client (it has better antennas then our crappy Gateway computers) helps.
