What some retirees from US want to have in Ecuador. Recent gems from Craigslist and expats forums. May 2014.

What some retirees from US want to have in Ecuador?
They want safe and secure, waterfront in Quito and a lawyer to bend these pesky Ecuadorian rules, no less.

Recent gems from Craigslist and expats forums:

Craigslist  - Apt or Condo Wanted (Quito)
American retired couple want a furnished apartment or condo - one or two bedroom, to rent. Three months (Jan. Feb. March 2015) time line is flexible. Must be in a nice area, safe & secure, close to shopping, cultural attractions, waterfront is desirable. Rent range is $800 - 1200. No pets, no kids.

P.S. ...so it "must be ... safe and secure" and close to cultural attractions. I don't know if place like that exist in the whole world. 
Ecuador is hardly a country for people who want "safe and secure".
Waterfront is desirable, well, dream on about waterfront in Quito....  

From expat forum:
I hear that it is almost impossible to bring a car in Ecuador.
Can it be done if we use a lawyer?

P.S.  As someone on this forum responded " This is NOT a litigious society(Ecuador- L) and trying to bend rules by hiring a lawyer is sooooo American."


Thank you guys for posting this nonsense, it's very entertaining for us, living in Ecuador.
