An A-Z Guide to Ecuador's Most Common Produce

Visiting an Ecuadorian mercado (market) for the first time can be quite intimidating. First and foremost, there are so many things you have never seen before.

I saw a link to this on one of the Facebook Expat groups and thought it was worth sharing. Two pages, so be sure to click the NEXT PAGE button at the bottom.

While not comprehensive, missing things like piña (pineapple), manzana (apples), more (blackberries) and frutilla (strawberries), it is a good introduction to fruits you might not recognize.

Ciao for now!

Successful move!

It's done! We managed to get moved with a minimum of trouble, thanks to Sebastian Espinoza Moving. This is our 4th or 5th exposure to him, a couple moves of things we bought from others and our two major moves. Highly recommended!

We sold our refrigerator and bought another (bigger) used one from friends and we also sold a lot of smaller stuff that we couldn't use (painted bench, rug, heater, dishes, etc). Now we have a bunch of little things left to sell.
