Now we wait for approval. The approval process may take seven to ten days. So, we are flying tomorrow night to Cuenca. Cuenca is where we have our apartment and where we will be living. The only issue is we have no furniture. Tomorrow night we may stay in a Hostal and then go shopping for a bed on Sunday.
When we receive approval we will have to surrender our passports which means we cannot fly. We will then take the ten hour bus ride back to Quito to receive our visas and cedulas. When we have those two things we will then officially be permanent residents of Ecuador.
