Dear Diary …

South America holds so much potential! I witnessed Brazil’s boom in burgeoning Fortaleza, the waves of Pipa to the paradise of Natal. Ecuador has regularly been named an expat hotspot, from historical Quito, colonial Cuenca to the prosperous port town of Manta. And last but not least, Peru, offering prosperity that is both financial and spiritual, from magical Lima, mountainous Cuzco to the spellbinding Machu Picchu.
