The backpacker had to change plans for his trip because of the protests – he was scheduled to stay in Cuenca for four days and travel through Ecuador, but roadblocks prevented him from leaving, and he's been in the city for eight days. .

Cuenca is the capital of Azuay province and the third largest city in Ecuador. Also called "Athens of Ecuador", it is located about 470 kilometers from the capital, Quito.

"The last information we received is that they also closed Cuenca airport. So it seems that the possibility of traveling to another city of Ecuador by plane is over," said Ader, who is staying in a hostel in the historic city center, from where recorded the demonstrations.

Police made a protective barrier around the Azuay state government headquarters. "The police drop tear gas at anyone who tries to pass, forcing the barriers," Ader said.

On Wednesday (9), the general strike called by indigenous groups that oppose the president of Ecuador, Lenin Moreno, caused the blockade of roads, stoppages in public transport and the closing of trade in Quito and other cities in the country.
