"Is there a market for home & Pet Caretaking around Quito?"
I am currently located in the Southwest U.S. and recently ventured into global home-sitting, pet-sitting, and caretake estates, through various 'agencies,' and professional websites.
I'm a member of IL, IA & AWAI, have been reading everything available for a good year, and am thrilled to hear of (waiting impatiently for) Suzan H & Dan P's book! I've narrowed down my initial point-of-entry into the world of Ecuador as the Andes highlands areas in & around Quito -- and then perhaps following the Moore's path to include a beach place as well.
It had occurred to me (too late to put an ad in the March IL) that most of the expats may tend to visit the their U.S./Canadian friends and families during the Spring-Summer months in North America. So, I'm wondering if someone can tell me if there is a local expat publication in that area that most everyone reads. Or exactly What would be the best venue or method to reach Americans and Canadians in that area, to let them know I'm available this Spring and Summer, as long as the visa requirements allow.
[And of course I can send a Profile and Prof. History, etc.]
It seems a great way to accommodate several (or many) trips between May - August, and also give myself a more 'in-community' way of getting my first look at that area, as opposed to staying in the solitary environment of a hotel room. Can anyone help me with this please?
Thanks very much.
