Ecuador-A Slow Start, But Starting to Rally

A travel blog entry by mariposanegra


... far. I don't know if it is because I am black, or freakishly tall for a woman, or clearly not Ecuadorian, or what, but I have not felt welcome here. Now I did expect some of this before I arrived; unlike Panama, I knew I would stick out a lot more, so I was prepared. But I am stared at in a non-friendly way on a regular basis, mostly by kids (I'll give them a break, kids stare at anything different, although one kid did ask me if I ...

Four Cities, Four Stories

A small museum offered ...

A travel blog entry by lairsho


We've been living in our little apartment for over two weeks now and are enjoying our pretend resident experiment. What do we like about Cuenca? The city is more organized and modern than many we have visited over the past five months. The streets, in the old town anyway, are all marked, and it's generally easy to find our way around. Across the river in the new part of town, almost none of the streets are marked. While Jerry has visited a dentist a couple of times, I ...
