From day one, we've had issues! After 3 days of little or no water, the "guard/caretaker" of our building showed up wanting $20 from us, if we wanted water. Not! Our rental agreement was that all utilities were included in our rent. We called Miriam and after she spoke with the owner of unit, she paid $20 for a huge tanker to come deliver water. They did BUT all of the Quito owners of units in our building showed up with all of their large families for vacation and used all the water but didn't pay. They used the water from the tanker we paid for. Most of the condo buildings here are Ecuadorian owned units and are only occupied for vacation purposes, so we're the only ones in our building on a full time basis.
Now that we're the ONLY ones in the building, there was no more water. So...Miriam had to give them another $20 to buy a tanker. That's total BS!! There's no way we used a huge tanker full for the 2 of us! But, we now have water. Something that must be considered when renting in a high rise anywhere!! Do the owners pay their bills including monthly HOA fees? We've heard horror stories, so be sure to ask all the right questions before renting anything or you might get stuck paying them!
We ended the evening with friends and a fun evening of Trivia at Coco Bongo with Sean Cater and many others we have gotten to know. A great way to bring our time here to a close!
