Jorge is a single 26 year-old professional chauffeur. He lives in Santo Domingo, the capital of Santo Domingo de los Tsachilas province in Ecuador which has seen sustainable growth over the last several years. The capital city's most attractive items are the delicious fruits and tourist destinations.
