In March of 2015 I moved from Boulder, Colorado to Cuenca, Ecuador.
What I love about living in Cuenca
- The rugged, mountainous terrain of the city. I'm a huge fan of hiking, running and biking so Cuenca's geography is a treat compared to the flat plains of the front range.
- Although I love skiing, the winter in Colorado can be a bit miserable and dreary. Cuenca receives much more precipitation than Colorado and it is evident with the lush surroundings and constant greenery.
- For once I'm noticeably taller than the average person ( which is nice for concerts )
- The coverage of public transportation throughout Ecuador is great, if you don't mind transferring between multiple buses you can get nearly anywhere in Ecuador for a reasonable cost.
