Olón is Booming! Plus, Meet our Famous Ecuadorian Neighbor: Olmedo Quimbita!

Plus, thanks to Ed Lindquist, and Yenis and Joel Bejas at Cuenca Expats Magazine, we got to meet our famous Ecuadorian neighbor: Olmedo Quimbita.

Quimbita is an internationally renowned Ecuadorian artist from Cotopaxi. His art has been featured in exhibitions in 20 different countries around the world. We’re not art experts, but his work reminds us of Picasso’s cubism with a touch of Inca and lots of bright Latin colors.

If you would like to learn more about Quimbita, Cuenca Expats Magazine will be sharing an expose about his history in their upcoming issue.

And if you would like to book a stay at the Quimbita Hotel here in Olón or buy some of his amazing artwork, you can learn more about that here.

As we mentioned in the video, I’m going to discuss President Elect Lasso’s top 10 policy plan for Ecuador in this week’s newsletter. It may be surprising to some, while calming to others. Whether he follows through with his plan remains to be seen, but at least we’ll know what’s on his mind.

After you opt-in to the newsletter, you’ll also gain immediate access to our Ecuador Cost of Moving and Living Calculator. And you can opt-out at any time. Sign up here before Friday at noon to get this week’s newsletter.

Hola todos! Welcome to my author bio page! Let's see. Where to begin... I grew up in the country on a lake outside a small Kansas farm town. As soon as I could, I got the hell outta there! Since then, I've lived and/or worked in Kansas City, Washington D.C., Denver, San Francisco, and Ecuador. I started and sold a dotcom, wrote a book about it, started a YouTube channel, and now I write a lot. Amelia and I have embraced the Unconventional Life and we want to help you do it, too!
