Living in Ecuador Day 278- Food Fair

Sunday, Oct 16, 2016

I got a call from my friend Aurobindo who invited us to a food fair not to far from our house. Everyone here had things already planned for the day, but I decided to meet him for lunch at the food fair.

It’s a beautiful sunny day in Cuenca! I love being outside when it is like this. I walked along the Yanuncay to where the food fair was set up in a green grassy area near the river. When I showed up, the vendors were still getting situated as many people began filling the grounds area. The crowd was mostly Ecuadorian but the music was American 80’s Rock. Go figure.

Auro came with a few of his friends that I got to meet for the first time. Miguel is from Portland, and Elada and Osnelly are both from Venezuela. Super nice people, but that seems to be the only kind of people I meet in Ecuador. What was great for me too was actually sweating from the heat and sun that shined down on us from above. Hallelujah!

A nice afternoon enjoying good conversation. (L to R: Auro, Elada, Osnelly, Todd, Miguel)

For lunch I had a small pizza from Rasta Pan. The owners moved their pizza biz from Montanita to Cuenca recently. It was a decent tasting pizza with a great wood-fire oven crust. I think they will do well here. A few other restaurant vendors were present, as well as many people selling their salsas, jams, coffee, cheeses, and desserts.

I feel like I have been floundering lately. Maybe I have too many irons in the fire and I’m not staying focused. I want to be life coaching more, so that definitely remains a main focus. I also have been spending a lot of time writing. There is so much to write about in the world right now; so many things to increase our collective consciousness around.

I’m still finding my voice, my content, and my connection to the audience I want to be talking with. It is definitely a process, and I can’t help but to think that my coaching and my writing are both connected with who I am and what I want to be doing in the world.

Working it out.
