A question answered with a quote: Ecuador edition

Have you ever wanted to escape from reality, to retire from the daily grind of life?
Where would you go, what would that place look like?
What languages would they speak, who would be living there?
You'd expect the place to be welcoming, ideally have a low cost of living with high quality of life.
Since you're relocating permanently, you'd want somewhere fertile for harvesting dreams. A farm for pet projects, to be able to build upon your paradise. One would have to consider the sustainability of a place built on unfettered dreams.

If this place existed surely there would be an influx of likeminded people - travellers, other idealists, escapists and refugees. What community would arise from that? Although seemingly intentional the unusual concentration might create an absurd cocktail.

This has been my Ecuador so far. A place recommended to me at the start of my journey but I still severely underestimated. Easily the most striking and livable Country I've ever visited, I've been swept up like countless before me. I'm curious to see what my impression of the place will be after a month spent here.

With that I present to you the Ecuador edition of 'A question answered with a quote'

I was spiritually hijacked
I'll survive. I'll be alive next year whether I spend $5 or $50 today
Knowledge is knowing tomato is a fruit, wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad
Well you just sit there and keep thinking like that...
Acting on your thoughts is half the battle
We're all here because we're not all there

and I'm having a really hard time with my consciousness right now
I don't want to disturb you and your "you-ness"
