Vilcabamba Ecuador 2015: Town Square, Waterfalls and Pretty Spiders

Here's some more photos of Vilcabamba that Brandon took on his adventures in Vilcabamba / Loja. Brandon really liked Loja a lot and said he would move there. Loja is just a smaller version of Cuenca. If you haven't seen the interview with Brandon about his few days in Loja, here it is.  Brandon did mention to us that while he was in Vilcabamba he saw more gringos (at least in the centro area) than Ecuadorians. So if you want a strong expat community, there it is.
