No one has the name Trump or Rockefeller. You meet them everywhere and they are quick to offer advice and pointers. Many are trying to convince us to join their expat community in a suburb referred to as "gringoland".
Thanks,but maybe next year!
Early start this morning as we caught the 7.15am bus from Banos to Cuenca. We got up at 6 o'clock to pack the rest of our bags and have a quick breakfast and say goodbye to our Ecuadorian family!
