We had a very busy day today going from place to place looking at homes and apartments. There were many nice places, a few that did not fit our needs and some that should have been cleaned and/or repaired before they were shown.
It has been a delightful day and we have thoroughly enjoyed seeing different sections of the city. Sharing the experience with our friend and hostess made it especially sweet. After much thought and discussion, we settled on a place we had seen a day or two ago, a 3 bedroom, 3 bath penthouse with a fireplace, jacuzzi tub and a loft that goes the entire length and width of the building to use as my artist studio and we have 5 terraces. We are the only penthouse in the building and the elevator goes to our front door. Another plus is that the rent includes everything from gas and water to internet.
We are feeling very blessed now and looking forward to receiving our Visas in three weeks time. The pictures I am posting are from the listing and I will post more complete pictures once we have gotten settled in. So looking forward to the 360 degree view we have of the city and its mountains and listening to the Tomebamba River sing as it winds it way by.
Need to get some rest as we have a busy schedule tomorrow and on Friday we head to the coast to do the remaining paperwork and pictures for our Visas. Until next time my friends,
