and so that’s the thing sometimes we just need to branch out of our little cocoon that we’re in our little area that we’re in and so when we make videos that are controversial it’s because they’re not really controversial to us you know when we say sayonara ecuador we’re just giving a message we’re just a messenger you know it isn’t a slur against ecuador there’s so much we like about equities i mean if somebody was using their head they’d know that look they’ve been here 10 years they’re still here somebody that doesn’t like it would have they don’t need you to tell them to you know leave they would have already left that’s the thing about expats they can pick up their bag and leave tomorrow see they don’t need anybody to tell them to do it so we’re going out for almerso free dollar on merzo we are absolutely just ecstatic about being here in ecuador and being right here right now in this spot and having armaerzo right here in this beautiful weather this beautiful surrounding beautiful price and with the wonderful people that are in this restaurant here’s what they have for today we’ve got soup and all of this food right here that stuff right there is really hot i wonder what kind of peppers it is hey welcome to our channel we’re so glad we have been abroad for 10 years we went abroad 10 years ago we came out here trying to make a video outside in cuenca ecuador you know all the things we’ve done the travel that we really wanted travel bug people call it simplistic name like travel bug but it’s that thing that you’re not happy you want to go out and and see the world you want to experience you want to have the adventure you know and have something different and it has on all of those levels met our expectations and exceeded our expectations actually so we’re we’re super happy we’ve done it we’ve also talked about the fact that ever since 2020 it’s just we’re just we’re going to ratchet it down so yeah we we uh we talk about stuff like that and uh we make videos and people are like you know they’re new to the channel or they haven’t seen those videos but we’ve said it before you know we’re we’re going to quit to expatting traveling around but that doesn’t mean we wouldn’t love to find a spot you know that that’s that we could be super super happy but so far it’s been a real challenge to do it’s like there’s a lot of contentment and satisfaction and gratitude in the fact that we’ve already done it but if we were just now you know looking at getting started i mean i don’t want to discourage anyone it’s always good to have a positive attitude and it’s always good to have a positive expectation and that’s why i say in some of my videos that i do believe there is good in humanity and then and that some good good will stand up and stand out out of all of this uh this harmony that is being caused in the world yes you know never before have you had people you know not in my lifetime anyway you know they that think it’s their business or they think that they’re somehow you know i mean there are those of us that have uh there are those of us that have and use alternative methods to keep ourselves safe and therefore because of that we have that positive we exude that positive and that confidence when we walk down the street we’re not in fear because not because uh misinformation disinformation not because of a sort of ignorant rebelliousness but because we know more we know more we do more and therefore you would think and this is part of the psychology of humanity is you would think people would want to know like when i know when i was younger right i never lost that curio i thank the creator that i never lost that childish curiosity because when i was younger i would walk down the street and see somebody working on his roof and i was so curious i wanted to go to work with him i wanted to go up there and go to work and maybe that was because i didn’t have a dad that was handy my dad wasn’t handy he didn’t even own any tools [Laughter] so i don’t remember as much as a screwdriver being in our house when i was growing up and i and so i’m just saying that a lot of us we we lose that childish curiosity and then when we want to embark on our retire early lifestyle if we haven’t already which we are proponents of learning to live a balanced life a free lifestyle asap don’t wait for a certain age or a certain amount of money don’t wait learn there are things that you may not presently know that could make you comfortable to be able to do it at this time but once you know that stuff and you practice it then you can feel comfortable and you can have confidence and be positive and it’s that way in all spheres of life and so i just wanted to make sure that i mentioned that because people sometimes are like well you know you’re saying this or you’re saying that you know and i made a video called i’m a liar you know because people maybe they’re new to the channel they don’t know that you said in previous videos and the fact that you’re not sleeping means that you may sometimes you just forget you know to say that yeah we’ve talked about this many times before you know we’re quitting the expatting life but we always have to have a caveat in the back door when we say things like that because the goodness in mankind can always flourish and come out and so i mean you can be you don’t want to be like blindly positive where you’re just you know getting on a surfboard and going out in the middle of the ocean with no water 100 miles out you know you don’t want to be you know stupid about it but uh you know you want to be well informed and and we do we keep a pulse on what’s happening all over the globe and so when we make videos that are controversial it’s because they’re not really controversial to us you know when we say sayonara ecuador we’re just giving a message we’re just a messenger you know it isn’t a slur against ecuador there’s so much we like about equities i mean if somebody was using their head they’d know that look they’ve been here 10 years they’re still here somebody that doesn’t like it would have they don’t need you to tell them to you know leave they would have already left that’s the thing about expats they can pick up their bag and leave tomorrow see they don’t need anybody to tell them to do it so my point is that i think that it’s just the nature of being out in public to always have a certain percentage of people that don’t get what you’re saying because they don’t really follow and they don’t they just they’re just you know sitting there on a rented computer for an hour and they see a headline headline video and they click on and they overreact so let’s not worry about them so i just i wanted to reiterate those things and i wanted to encourage people too because we want to see the positive in mankind come out we want to see things we want to encourage everyone even those in authority to understand that the benefits of having harmony with it within a humanity in a culture they benefit everyone they benefit everyone within the culture they benefit businesses look at you know you’ve got businesses that are closing here i mean how many businesses have we walked down the street today because we walked yes from the center all the way to the edge of town which we love walking that’s one of the reasons we went abroad is to be more walking and we got that and so but how many of these businesses were boarded up a lot of many of them are just boarded up and it’s sad to see it uh you know when you talk about these kinds of things you know it i don’t think you can say enough about it to help people understand that you are a positive person you are wanting to encourage the goodness in humanity and in the in these countries and for example we live in an age where there’s so much click bait and misinformation and stuff and you know like i said that guy that said oh you know uh rhys is wide open boom 15 000 views in one day i mean it’s misleading you know and but to get away from that it’s like it’s the age that we’re in where for example like i see uh you see somebody like in mexico you know there’s lots of youtubers in mexico saying oh look at my great apartment and of course it’s a it’s a foreigner price you know the foreigner prices and and then a month later she’s making a video why we’re leaving mexico so i mean these people aren’t really what are you learning from these people you know you’re just learning how to be a tourist and protect you know i mean i don’t this is the kind of age we live in and we try to make videos that are a little bit different than that you know that that are there’s so much information our videos are so much more different than that we try to go a little bit deeper be a little bit stronger and sometimes it could be that we may be a little overly strong but there’s a reason for it it’s because we’re confident we’re positive and we have more information that is commonly known and we know that people can be healthy people there are alternative methods of doing this this isn’t the only way to handle the fear that people are having you know leo tolstoy was a 19th century writer and his writings are amazing if you haven’t seen him he wrote the you see the movie now ann caranina he uh he used to he worked for the government and it wasn’t until he went abroad now hold that thought because if you go to the globe you can go to the google maps globe right you take the land mass of ecuador and you put your fingers around it and you superimpose it over the land mass of north america and how many ecuadors can you fit go see how many ecuadors you can fit in north america probably i have a oh wow many a lot i think ecuador somebody said ecuador was the size of georgia one state yeah so you’ve got 50 states and anyway population wise you’ve got 20 times as much of the population and yet in north america the majority of north america is wide open you know leo tolstoy once he traveled abroad he realized at that time all the wrongs of his society that he was from and all of the things that weren’t you know that and so he started writing stories and you know with that theme and so that’s the thing sometimes we just need to branch out of our little cocoon that we’re in our little area that we’re in and understand that there are other things happening that we should become aware of so that we can encourage ourselves to be more open-minded to especially to ideas that perhaps at this time seem to be you know a little kind of out there but actually really you know if your average ecuadorian travels to america they’ll be like you know nobody’s afraid of anything and everything’s normal i’m not i’m not talking about those peripheral states where they’re still very authoritarian about how they handle these issues i’m talking about the whole rest of the country which is a lot more that is wide open and where people are living normal lives which uh by the way you know is more of an opportunity for people to be in harmony and live in a harmonious environment as opposed to this environment where people are seen as adversaries and therefore you’re you’re someone to castigate or reprove or what have you all right how’s that for a clarification video so today though we’re going out for almerzo it’s a great restaurant it’s uh we love the vegetarian you know if you don’t mind that if you want steak and potato it’s not your place you know but uh this is a great place come eat here good affinity thanks for coming to our
