Expats expectations and complaints about life in Ecuador. From Craigslist and expats in Ecuador forums, English and Russian speaking. May 2014.

The level of hypocrisy in this add (placed in English on a Craigslist Ecuador) is stunning. This poster want to live "gringo life" in the nice areas of Cuenca, furnished, with appliances, but doesn't want to pay "Gringo prices" on a pretext being " a responsible immigrant"

Looking for rental apt or house (Cuenca)
Looking for 2/3 bedroom apartment or house. Either furnished less than $700 all included or unfurnished with appliances less than $450. Not located in El Centro, looking for area near park/river e.g. del Rio, Manchagara area.
Trying to be a responsible immigrant and not pay Gringo prices.
Thanks

While English speaking Ecuador expats were discussing what is more agreeable:
"circling the young boys in Cuenca's parks"
" crawling into bed with a young Ecuadorian girl"
"Or, how about crawling into bed alone! That works well too."
" Give me a leathery, old, itchy, stinky, half drunken, pill popping, non-Christian, ethnic loving, and cranky old bitch any day! Now we are talking happiness!"
P.S. These posts have been reported as "abuse" and deleted by admin.
...I have to admit that to read this particular thread was a "guilty pleasure".

..some Russian speaking Ecuador expats were posting bitter comments:
-Selection of food in Ecuador supermarkets not to their liking and inventory of some items are sporadic.
-Ecology is Quito is terrible
-They cannot buy clothing and shoes in their sizes.
-Traffic and bad roads in Quito,
-Crowded buses often don't stop for them.
-Not reliable delivery of gas tanks (needed for cooking and if you are lucky to have water heater to have hot water in a shower)
-Taxicabs are old, not equipped with chairs for children, impossible to call.
etc, etc...
