The decsion as to where to retire has taken on a sense of urgency...
... as my "position at work was eliminated" after about seven years. At age 64. And the beat goes on...
From all I've seen, Cuenca is at the top of the list, and I'm trying to decide when it would be best to visit and, if all goes well, at least start the process of visa stuff, finding an apartment, shipping, etc. I'm thinking that the move would take place in 60-90 days.
If anyone has any ideas, I would sure like to hear them. One thing that I'd like to know more about are these "all-in-one" services I read about, where you pay a fee for someone to do the necessary leg-work, show you places to rent, etc. Are they simply Gringo rip-offs? (I am an experienced ex-pat, lived in Brazil for over 10 years, and have seen people get snookered this way). Or would the local newspaper be the way to go, i.e. being there? And, finally, is it really true that I could live a reasonably decent life on $1100 month?
Any and all ideas and suggestions would be most welcome. Thank you.
