A while back we started titling some posts, “Slice of Life…” to give ourselves a forum to post little things about day-to-day life here in Ecuador. The hope is that providing a little “slice of our life” here will show our friends and relatives a little of what it is like to live in our little town of San Clemente, Ecuador.
Mary and I subscribe to some Facebook forums about Ecuador and we read news and blog posts about Ecuador whenever we can. Often in these sites we read about foreigners being targeted as theft or robbery victims. We are warned to avoid displaying wealth and are told often to keep our phones and other electronic equipment out of sight.
