Sept. 19, 2014, Quito, Ecuador: Expat Theresa Rall relocated to Quito, Ecuador, 14 years ago and loves everything about her new life.

The goings-on in Quito continue. Among those addressing the attendees at this week's Live and Invest in Ecuador Conference today was American expat Theresa Rall...
"I'm from Nebraska," Theresa began. "I first came to Ecuador 30 years ago as an undergraduate student. Fourteen years ago I came back to live here, and I've been here ever since.
"I'm in the golf business," Theresa continued. "I own pro shops here in Ecuador, and I'm the Titleist distributor.
"How can I help you understand all that Ecuador has to offer and why I've been so happy I've made my home here all these years?
"I've put together a presentation to that end titled:
"'The F-words of Ecuador'...

"When I first came to this country as a 19 year old, I spent seven months working as an intern. That was a lot of fun. There are all sorts of activities and outdoor things to do here in Ecuador. Ecuador is about as different from Nebraska as you can get. Everything I encountered and experienced way back then as a young girl was new and exciting.
"It's easy to enjoy all the outdoor experiences this country has to offer because the climate here can't be beat, even on our worst days. Some locals will say 'Que frio' when it's 50 degrees or 'Que calorzaso' when it's 78 degrees and sunny. All I can think is, 'Wow, you guys have no idea...'
