We Are the 1 Percent

Drum roll please…Paul and I will be spending the next two years of our lives in: Pucará, Ecuador! Pucará is a  town of between 200-300 people, located a few hours north of Quito making us as a couple 1% of the entire population of the town!

What we have learned about our new home so far:

  • It is located about 2 hours away from the famous market town of Otavalo

  • There is a Spanish language school there started by someone from the US

  • The town is in the middle of a cloud forest

  • It is supposed to be BEAUTIFUL!

  • We are not far from the cities of Cotocachi and Ibarra

  • There are zipline tours, hot springs, horseback rides, and hikes nearby

So, that’s all for now! More details as they come…

Take care, Mari & Paul
