Driving from Cuenca to Vilcabamba Ecuador is extremely beautiful. It took us over 5 hours, but it normally only takes about four. We arrived very late so we didn’t film our first night of bachata dancing. Stay tuned for that in the next video….

In this video, we had the great honor of interviewing a famous artist from the Cuenca Ecuador art scene, Patricio Palomeque. We attended his art exhibit opening almost a month ago with Christina (our new Spanish tutor) and thoroughly enjoyed it. So we made arrangements to return and talk to him in more detail about his art.
This is a bilingual video. We have a lot of Spanish speaking viewers, so we wanted to share Mr. Palomeque’s explanation of his art, as well as Christina’s translation. If you don’t speak Spanish, you can skip forward in the video to the English-speaking parts. Although, I did share video of some of the exhibits while Patricio was talking….

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….
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.
