surely didn't unsubscribe from your site and didn't have
to do that! May be there occured some mistake?
love your Retire in Ecuador and moreover I do like your style
describing the events, When reading your issues I feel as if
read a letter from a friend.
please tell me what to do - should I subscribe again ?
we can together solve the problem and I will be able
business is done by word of mouth, whether it
is real estate or not, so getting to know the locals is a good idea.
yet, find a local you trust and who trusts you and then let them do the
negotiating for you since there are "local" prices and
"gringo" prices on just about everything. Better yet, contact John
& Dixie at http://www.retire-in-ecuador.com.
They are expats and wonderful people who help other expats not only
out there for sale or rent, they hold your hand through the

Ecuador and plan to move asap to Cuenca, but we still have to liquidate
assets here in the states to do it. Ursula”
Dixie and John,
spent some time inside your beautiful site.
the place, wow what a great find...
brother travels a lot into the mining areas of Central America, he is
his way back from Peru as we speak.
photos remind me of different areas here in Aussie land. Your photos
a little of Q'ld's tropic areas, well just a bit.
love the idea of retiring in an area that will basically keep me
until I am over 100 (if I eat, play and be merry the right way) Would
put you onto my Interesting Places---Visit America, page.
am sure that as my site moves on the traffic that it builds will love
up and investigate the beautiful places that you have discovered.
the way, when you buy that 25 acre property I will rent the Maid
barter my skills for the privilege.
me know regards the link.
then have fun.
John and Dixie, I have enjoyed your web site and stories. Meri and I
traveled to Ecuador in November 2008 to verify the stories that a
live on $600 per month. Indeed we met several doing that.

am fascinated by your story, experiencing your adventures without the
adrenaline! After all your experiences, you can set up an Immigrants
Office, or something similar, to save people time money and worry.
can see you enjoying your discoveries!
DIXIE AND JOHN,
I HAVE TO CONGRATULATE YOU FOR THE NICE NARRATION OF ADVENTURES AROUND
AND THE REST OF THE WORLD.
MY NAME IS GUSTAVO, AND I RECENTLY MOVED BACK TO ECUADOR. I
HAVE BEEN A
RESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES FOR MANY YEARS AND NOW WITH MY WIFE
RETIRE IN ECUADOR.
WE ARE NOW IN QUITO ENJOYING THE WEATHER, THE NICE VIEWS OF THE
THE REST OF THE FAMILY. MY TWO SMALL DAUGHTERS STARTED SCHOOL
AGO AND ARE ENJOYING IT VERY MUCH.
IF I CAN BE OF ANY ASSISTANCE, LET ME KNOW, AND IN YOUR NEXT VISIT TO
GIVE ME A CALL OR STOP BY TO SAY HELLO. MY OFFICE IS LOCATED IN THE
OF THE CITY AND NOT DIFFICULT TO FIND.
John & Dixie,
I want to say thank you for creating your website. I finally found a
that validated everything that we have reading and researching about
potential to move to Ecuador.
of luck to you and your husband on your journey. i
all your e-mails w/great interest. ecuador sounds terrific
and friend of
mine has visited often and will probably move from here in virginia to
quito or to san miguel, mx. i've always loved to travel and
often in my life due to either father's or husband's career.
retire in mexico, but this seems unlikely now since 10 years after a
life-saving lung transplant plus the loss of my husband, i doubt i
it alone. medical needs are enormous bc of the xplant, and
of 10 years of drugs have left me with a necessarily quieter
darn! however, i am grateful to still be here on this
sooooooo, more power to you. enjoy yourselves and, as the
"live like you're dying."
I'm so glad I signed up with your site! I have gotten some extremely
information already from reading your previous articles. Thank you. You
sound like the kind of people my husband and I would love to meet when
get in town!
John and Dixie,
Jo and I are very excited about everything and just to let you and
my marriage of 18 years I have never seen my wife so excited and
anything like she is about this project. Jo and myself are looking
meeting all who are involved in this project and we have our
tickets for April 9th to the 15th. John we do have a few friends
some type of owner ship in the project down the road, I will put them
with you and Dixie. Hoping all goes well for you and Dixie and
on your upcoming marriage from the both of us.
