Cuenca Ecuador VLOG
We share another typical day in our life in this Cuenca Ecuador Expat Living video. After my morning massage, we had a late lunch with friends, visited an organic shop in El Centro, walked around this beautiful city taking pictures and ended our afternoon at Zatua Miski for a peanut butter chocolate ice cream bar.
The next morning, we woke to a beautiful day during the rainy season here in Cuenca Ecuador, so we decided to take Daisy for a walk along the river. Little did we know that a pothole had my name on it….
An Ecuador Permanent Resident Visa is something we need if we want to stay in Ecuador beyond our 2-year temporary resident visa expiration date.
Our temporary resident visa expires in 8 months and we wanted to get a headstart on the process because it can take awhile to get all the necessary paperwork. It also takes awhile for the Ecuadorian government to approve and issue our permanent resident visas.
Here’s an overview of what you can expect if you’re ready to apply for your Ecuador Permanent Resident Visa….
This was an unexpected Day In The Life video! We planned to meet Olesya and Johnny for some Cuenca Ecuador Salsa Dancing lessons in the afternoon, but we didn’t have much else planned for the day.
Usually, when we go to popup ferias, we only stay a few minutes, but Allpafest was great! We saw lots of friends and ate some delicious vegan goodies!
Amelia and I went to Sojo Spa Hair Salon Cuenca Ecuador to get her dried out mop cut off. She said it reached the point of no return. Plus, I’ve been encouraging her to get it cut for quite a while.
It’s a long-standing joke on our channel to refer to Amelia’s uber curly frizzy hair as a mop. She thinks it’s just as funny as everyone else!
We’ve been in Cuenca for over a year and a half now and we’re still finding new and exciting things to do, but we wanted to share our current Top 10 Things To Do in Cuenca Ecuador with you. These are the activities we did with our friends and family when they came to visit and they LOVED them.
We never get tired of exploring Cuenca and the surrounding areas. Everywhere we look, there’s something beautiful and historic to see…
We’re back to business as usual here in Cuenca, Ecuador after are 4 week trip to Miami, Amsterdam, India and back. This day in the life video gives you a good taste of life here with a Cuenca Ecuador Yanuncay River walk, organic markets, belly dancing and delicious Southern Indian food.
We get a lot of questions about the types of Ecuador resident visas and the process for getting a visa in Ecuador so we arranged an interview with Maité Durán at GringoVisas. She and her team helped Amelia and me get our temporary resident visas when we decided to move to Ecuador.
We recorded this video several weeks ago, but it kept getting pushed down the queue for other, more time relevant videos.
Since we recorded it, the Nut Wars between Jeff Nelson at VegSource and Dr. Joel Fuhrman have simmered down, but that doesn’t make this issue less concerning for people like me (JP) with a strong family history of heart disease and a long-term battle with high cholesterol….
The Cuenca Ecuador Hat Museum (Museo del Sombrero) is a nice place to model some Panama hats, learn their history and see how they’re made. It’s also a great place to drink a cup of coffee while enjoying the view of Cuenca.
Several people have asked us about organic or natural stores here in Cuenca, so we show you two of them in this video. Plus, we had some delicious vegan sushi for lunch at Origami….
Amelia And JP are gringo expat vegans living our unconventional life in Cuenca, Ecuador. We enjoy sharing our daily lives, travel adventures, expat info and plant-based cooking from our small South American country.
