The Cuenca Highlife website is an excellent source on happenings in Cuenca and La República.  I check it out at least a few times a week, especially for Ecuador News.

Currently, two articles caught my interest --

Jeff Van Pelt’s comprehensive report on adjusting to life in Ecuador -- including the importance of learning Spanish ... factors that enable some Expats to adjust well, while others do poorly and often leave ... and comments on avoiding the experience of isolation.

I especially liked his recommendation against pontificating to other Expats about how they are ‘guests’ in the ‘host’ country.

The other article is about the jockeying in Ecuador’s presidential race.  Ecuador will vote in its first new president in ten years in early 2017.  We don’t argue politics on this forum, yet it’s only natural that newcomers to Ecuador would be interested in Decision 2017 at least in broad outlines.  Get your EC political fix at www.cuencahighlife.com ....
