I’m writing this on the second ﬂoor of an elegant café in the Ecuadorian capital, Quito. I often spend time working from here. The coffee is good, only $2 a cup, the wireless Internet connection is fast and free, and the views of La Carolina, one of the city’s largest parks, are inspiring.
Today, married to a pretty Ecuadorian, Henry is one of Quito’s most successful businessmen. For two years he traveled to Ecuador arranging mahogany shipments for a furniture company.
