A reader recently sent this note about people and Ecuador.
Hi Gary, I just wanted to thank you for your input on Ecuador and what it is like living there. I love the way you have turned a business into an act of love and help those around you in the process. We are both retired at a youngish age (you are only as young as you feel) and are still very fit and healthy enjoying a good life here.
We are thinking of coming out to Ecuador and maybe we could get some tips from you on what to see etc. For me I would also like to help others in some way by giving of my time and energy…..I am so very blessed that it would be nice to help others. I don’t want to just give the fish as it were but to help people to help themselves as I think that does the most good but in what way I have no idea.
Keep up the good work …. your wonderful aura shines through in the photo’s you have. Very best wishes .
I really thank that reader as Merri and I could not agree more. The entire focus of our foundation Land of the Sun and our business there is to held educate and create employment for the people of Ecuador. We have donated the entire hotel to the foundation and all proceeds from its operation go towards this end. Merri and I do not receive a penny from Meson’s operation.
May I share the email that the staff at Meson de las Flores sent to Merri last Sunday? This shows why it is such a pleasure to help the people of Ecuador.
Join us at Meson de las Flores and meet the wonderful Ecuador people at one of our courses and tours.
