Where To Buy Hand-Carved Wooden Santos In Ecuador


“Kathleen, the article about the medical clinic in Nicaragua was stunning and inspiring. I have followed you for a long, long time, and I have long surmised that your underlying motive is as much service as profit. This article confirmed that.

“So this is a note of gratitude for your humanitarian vision. And a note of encouragement. Please continue to show us the service side of making the big cultural move to live and invest overseas.”

–Dr. Ken P., United States


“Kathleen, reading this newsletter about your conference going on in Quito reminded me about a town that mentioned in a post during a conference in Quito a couple of years ago. At the time, you wrote about a town that you and Lief visited (somewhere around Cotacacchi and Otavalo, I think) that is known for the many santos figures for sale there, both old and new. I also collect santos and have lost that post in a computer crash since then. Could you please let me know what that town is? I would really appreciate it.

“Thanks in advance for any information you can give me on the ‘santos’ town!

“Also, today happens to be our two-year anniversary of living in Cuenca, which we enjoy very much. Spanish is still a challenge. We’re taking lessons, but there are just ‘demasiados verbos‘ (too many verbs) to conjugate! But we keep plugging along. Right now, we wouldn’t be anywhere else!”

–Deborah D., Ecuador

Congratulations on your anniversary!

The town you’re thinking of is San Antonio de Ibarra, Ecuador. Happy santos shopping.
