Has living abroad changed the way you dress?  Posted on 02/21/2015

What kind of reader are you?  Posted on 02/17/2015
There are writers who write within a genre and those who write outside of them, too. But what about the readers? How do you read? What do you read? Why do you read? Now, don’t laugh, but I started to become aware that I like to read...

Why this Asian American never pursued acting.  Posted on 02/09/2015
Grace Rowe’s video message to Asian Americans reminded me why I never pursued acting after high school. She pleas for AAs to get into acting and she’s witty about it, too. I liked the video. But even in high school, I knew I...

How yoga helps my writing  Posted on 01/25/2015
I’ve been practicing yoga for about 12 years. I say this not to impress you, but because I want to establish how long yoga and I have enjoyed a healthy relationship. Of course, by now, you’d think I’d be really bendy and...

    Hey dpcjsr,

    If you go to my blog tellthaiheart.com and go to CATEGORIES => you will see category for Ecuador...here is the link: http://tellthaiheart.com/category/ecuador/

    I wrote about my experiences and they were overall great but ultimately, I didn\'t feel like I fit in. I lived in Cuenca and worked for CEDEI which I highly recommend. Great people.

    Good luck! Spanish is easier for sure, but you cannot get by like you can here w/ English. Practice, practice! And as a male(?) your experiences are sure to be different. It\'s a beautiful country. Cheers.
