Hello Fellow Expats! My husband and I are coming down to Cuenca in October. I am naturally cold. I wear alot fo furs to stay warm; real, faux, Mongolian. How will that go over? I don't want to be the center of attention, or the subject of jeers.

It'll be great. Don't forget to wear plenty of expensive jewelry and flash your cash whenever possible.

Wearing your furs here isn"t likely to bother the Ecuatorians. You will however, offend most of the expatriats that live here. Not many are as inclusive and non-judgemental as you may have hoped..

So, I should leave the Grey Poupon at home too? It's not like I'm talking full length minks, but I get the idea. Thanks!

I've seen a few fake furs in Cuenca - You'll certainly stand out!
(It is not typical dress for either locals or expats from my observations.)

Yes - bring the Grey Poupon - Large Jar Please.
I'll buy it off of you but I won't be back from Spain until Oct. 31st.
I can pay in advance via paypal.
Good quality mustard other than yellow mustard is expensive here in Ecuador.
Thanks,
Ken

Ken,

If you're in Spain, forget the Grey Poupon! You have access to terrific spicey, green Dutch mustard. Thanks to EU the availability of truly great condiments ( which you can take back to Ecuador with you ) are available in the Mercados and Supermarkets in Spain super cheap.


Seriously, if you run across any "hot" Dutch mustard or more importantly, Spanish saffron, please get some for me. I will gladly pay you for it and pick it up when you return to Ecuador at the end of Oct.


PM me if you need me to pay you while you're over there.

Enjoy Spain. I always have - particularly Torremolinos and Málaga.

An American expat and his Ecuadorian wife, who initially lived with family in Quito, moved to Cuenca and enjoy life there.
