Sex on the Beach, Montanita and Carnival Weekend

I wanted to share thoughts on a fabulous Carnival week in Montanita, renting a car in Cuenca, and staying at a great hostel a few steps off the The Point between Montanita and Olon. No sex on the beach, actually, but I thought this needed a good title.

My friend Gail, visiting from South Carolina, drove an SUV rented from Cuenca Car Share (Emilio Morocho – emiliodriver@hotmail.com). While the drive during the day through the mountains was an adventure, with numerous landslides and only a few crazy drivers, we reached the Casa Del Sol (casadelsolmontanita.com) with no problems.

Emilio was very supportive in making the rental happen and I can recommend him for service quality and ease of doing business. He delivered the car to us and picked it up when we returned. Having a car allowed us to drive up to Puerto Lopez and go out to Isla de la Plata for a wonderful day trip and to make another trip to Olon for an afternoon on the beach. (We both liked the La Punta area more than Olon, BTW. It was simply more casual, less commercial and uncrowded. But this was, after all, Carnival weekend. And there were a number of restaurants within easy walking distance.)

Jackson at the hostel was incredibly attentive to us and the other guests. We always felt supported and any requests we had were met promptly. Everyone was respectful and there was a real sense of collegiality among everyone; it was just the style of operations. Our room was great (a king bed and air conditioning) and everyone staying there shared the hospitality and openness that helped make our trip even better.

We were right at the beach, right at the point where the surf was fantastic and the where the surfers were out in numbers and fun to watch. Sunsets were fabulous and the walk down the beach to the city was easy and safe. Gail spent a lot of time picking up seashells and rocks and the beach itself was amazing – very clean and wide. We also had perfect weather, making things even better.

Walking to Montanita was always interesting with people playing in the surf (fabulous temperature!) and some amazing beachwear. Everyone was friendly and we were not bothered. Downtown, we had some really great cocktails on Cocktail Alley (I recommend Gabby for the best mojitos I ever had.) We made friends with some street vendors, ate good food and ice cream and had fun walking around.

I enjoyed the trip so much that I booked for next year.

We are sold out.

Our Opera Night with Alex Rodríguez, Joan Rodríguez and Natalie Rojas is completely sold out. We thank you for helping us make this happen. Remember that La Guarida gives 100% of your admission fee to the musicians. It is a small step to help struggling artists and musicians due to this health crisis. Our capacity is very limited and we feel is the least we can do and you help us make this happen.

Next week, we are bringing back the incredible Cuban band “4 de Cuba.” These four musicians are just incredible and fill La Guarida with Caribbean rhythms. If you love Salsa, if you love Latin Culture and music then this is the perfect concert for you.

Make your reservations by calling 099 806 8071.

We are La Guarida. #1 recommended place in TripAdvisor. Come and get to know us.

February 27th, from 7:30 to 10 PM, $10. Mariscal Lamar y Luis Pauta, Cuenca.

Painting tours

A Painting Dream Becoming a Reality
By Victor Rexach

Please read entire announcement article. “Painting for the first time,” was one of my first articles on my personal “blog,” after I started to attend a group of enthusiastic, talented and fun painters in Cuenca, Ecuador called “Vino & Van Gogh,” created by Amelia Earl. We use to paint every two weeks at San Sebastian Café and became one of my favorites things to do after retiring here in Cuenca.

I have painted before, but not to the point to understand that exercising our creativity and talent can give us an outlet from our daily routines, helping us express emotions and boost our happiness levels. Keeping this information in my head and being a lover for everything related to the arts, I knew there was something extra I could do to promote Cuenca tourism through art and painting opportunities. Since then, there was an idea in my mind but always overthinking if I wanted to pursue my dream to make it a reality.

After a year looking for support and commitment to my project, I’m very pleased and happy to announce the preliminary launching of “Paintourart, painting colors of creativity,” monthly tours, a joint venture with Best Experience Ecuador, Travel Agency, local professionals, experts in the travel industry. “When painting tours idea was presented to us by our friend Victor Rexach, we immediately embraced the initiative and make it part of our own tours as a fun and unique alternative for our clients,” said Pedro Alvarez, business partner at Best Experience Ecuador.

We are now in final touches for our first year of the new venture, but will like to give a sneak preview of what is coming ahead. Our first official “Paintourart” event will take place on Saturday, April 17, 2021, an all-day tour from 8:30 AM to 5 PM. We will be visiting two wonderful countryside places, “Trébol Roses Plantation farm,” and El Cortijo Cattle Hacienda, 45 minutes north of Cuenca, by Azogues and Biblian area. It’s a 4th generation family business that employees around 120 persons, specially young indigenous ladies. The painting theme will be roses, the perfect place for inspiration and creativity for our painters.

All of our tours will count with the participation of well-known local painting artist Cristian León “Cleón,” he will be providing tips, orientation and recommendations to our participantes during the most important part of our tour, the painting experience. At the end of the day, all of our painters will leave with their own creation in a 19″ x 15″ canvas that will keep as a memory of their experience in Cuenca, Ecuador.

You don’t have to be a Picasso, Vincent Van Gogh or Salvador Dalí to express your own creativity, everyone is welcome, beginners, amateurs, and experienced painters, we will have everything set-up for you.

This is just the beginning of what we have in place for all our participants. Details of what will be included in the tour, price, schedule of all future tours, reservations and payment method, will be announced in our official launching through our marketing and promotional efforts, coming soon.
For now, any question or interest write to,
paintourart@gmail.com

Are you ready? Let’s all paint.

Please share the story.

April 17, 2021, 10 AM – 5 PM, Calle Larga, Cuenca.

Meditation Invitation from Home Sunday with Shambhala

“You won’t be punished for your anger; your anger will punish you.” ~ attrib. Buddha

Dear Cuenca Community,

Shambhala Cuenca would like to invite you to meditate together from your home this Sunday at 10.30 AM. There are many forms and methods of meditation – the form you choose doesn’t matter, however it’s a very good thing to remember our shared humanity as we sit quietly and become mindful for a period of time.

Online meditation sessions are available at https://virtual-cushion.shambhalaonline.org

To practice online regularly with a group, you can also visit https://boston.shambhala.org/getting-started/

Contact cuenca.shambhala@gmail.com , and visit us online at cuenca.shambhala.ws and Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/229033203881661

If you would like to use it, the form we use at Shambhala Cuenca is outlined below, and you can search “Donna Williams Meditation” for instructions on YouTube, or contact us for instructions.

***
Cuenca Shambhala Meditation Practice:

Note that times and practices noted are commonly used, but shorter or longer times are beneficial too. Do what feels right to you.

– Opening prayer or recitation.
– Seated meditation, 20 minutes.
– Walking meditation, 15 minutes.
– Seated meditation, 20 minutes.
– Closing prayer or recitation.

Start with an attitude of friendliness and loving kindness toward yourself. Then, if you’re able, take an upright posture, on a cushion on the floor or in a chair, with the spinal column vertical. Notice your body sensations and be aware of any feelings that arise (such as anxiety, tiredness, anger, passion, boredom, indifference, etc.). Begin to completely identify with your natural breathing, in and out, maintaining some awareness of your body/posture. When thoughts or emotions arise, taking you away from the present moment, you simply notice them, without any judgement. Simply label the thought/emotion as “thinking” and return to awareness of your body breathing. Sitting meditation is a practice of simply being, touching into your awareness of that being, and letting go without trying to attain anything.

For walking meditation, take the same approach, except place attention on your feet as they touch the earth, and your legs moving through space. Join the hands at waist level and walk at a speed only slightly slower than normal (see photo).

Traditionally it’s believed that merit is accrued by meditating. In Shambhala, we dedicate this merit to the benefit of all beings, using the closing text below. Feel free to use it, or any other of your choosing:

Opening:
“May basic goodness dawn;
May the confidence of goodness be eternal;
May that goodness be all-victorious;
May that goodness bring profound, brilliant glory.”

Closing:
“By this merit may all attain omniscience.
May it defeat the enemy, wrong-doing.
From the stormy waves of birth, old age, sickness, and death,
From the ocean of samsara, may I free all beings.”

Immersion Spanish lessons

• Lessons are given Monday thru Friday.
• You can take three hours in the morning (from 8 or from 9 AM) and/or take three hours in the afternoon (from noon or from 1 PM).
• During this program, you will…
· …learn topics of Ecuadorian and Latin-American culture, history, foods, arts, music, etc.
· …learn to handle conversations in different situations, such as, giving directions on a taxi, shopping at different stores, making a doctor’s appointment, , etc.

When can I start?
You can start anytime.

Where are the lessons given?
They can be given online (SKYPE or ZOOM).

Can I come to the School in Cuenca?
Sure. We’re at 16-63 Mariscal Lamar, between Miguel Velez and Miguel Heredia. We’re in the north of Cuenca downtown. Just ring the doorbell at the door and you’ll be very welcome.

How long does this program last?
It lasts three weeks.

What should I do to start my immersion program?
Before you begin taking this Immersion Course, you will be interviewed to know your interests in topics you would like to discuss and talk about during this course. You will also have to take a placement test, which is free, to know your level of Spanish, so we can prepare a lesson plan for you and your partners.

Will I really learn to understand and speak Spanish?
Sure, you will! We’ve been teaching languages, Spanish included, for almost 20 years. Your Spanish will be enhanced in record time.

How do I pay for my lessons?
You can pay cash.
You can deposit or wire money to any of our savings accounts (Pichincha, JEP or Guayaquil)
You can pay thru PayPal with Xoom, a PayPal service.

What did participants say about our lessons?
“We got a small group of friends together who were frustrated in our mutual lack of advancement in Spanish after 2+ years in Cuenca. CCN’s approach to teaching, patience and encouragement has provided a fun environment in which to learn. In just a few short weeks, most of us have learned and retained more than other classes and online teaching.

We love our experience and look forward to each week’s class that is opening up a whole new world for us.”

“I am very pleased to recommend CCN’s Spanish teachers here in Cuenca. I have been taking private lessons from them for the past four weeks now and I continue to look forward to each new class with them. I am a naturally inquisitive individual and I like to ask lots of questions. I have previously taken group classes elsewhere but would come home frustrated, because I would rarely get the opportunity to have more than a few of my questions answered. The concepts I needed to understand were being left as a mystery to me. This is not the case with CCN’s Spanish teachers. They are amazingly patient and also very flexible. They always allow me to focus or redirect my private lesson toward the things I would like to learn. When I first met with them, they spent an hour with me free of charge, assessing my incoming Spanish abilities. Each subsequent class has been based on working from my current level and helping me improve. I really like the fact that they always type out our conversation on their computer screen as we are talking. I am a very visual learner and when I can also see on their screen what we are discussing, it really reinforces the entire learning process. This also means I do not need to take notes but can concentrate on the speaking/listening aspects of the learning process. When I get home, the notes which they created during our class are waiting for me in my email inbox. Now how cool is that? I can go back over everything we talked about in class as a review, at my leisure.”

Blake

Should you have any questions, we’ll be happy to assist you.
We look forward to helping you out with your Spanish.

Contact us today to sign up for your Free Spanish diagnostic test in order to start your Immersion Spanish Course.

– Classes are given twice, three times a week or every day, Monday thru Friday.
– You can take this program for four weeks or for four months. It is up to you.
– This program is exclusively prepared to meet your needs and expectations.

Recommendations from participants:

“Thanks to attending the language school “CCNations, Escuela de Idiomas” I was able to pass the Ecuador citizenship written and interview exams, and will soon become a naturalized citizen. With their homework materials and instructional classes, my level of Spanish increased to where I could study, learn, and pass these essential subjects: the history of the tri-color Flag (“la bandera”); the Coat-of-Arms Shield (“el escudo”); the National Anthem (“himno nacional”); the important battles, persons and events for gaining Independence; and the primary Presidents of Ecuador. These study materials include bilingual booklets and guides, flash cards, simulation tests (from the official examinations), and multiple practice sessions.

Classes can be scheduled on flexible hours for individual sessions, or with small groups of other students. Additionally, this private 18-year language school can also help applicants to pass the examinations to obtain a drivers’ license (“Licencia de Conducir”). This is one of the top language schools I have ever attended!”

Recommended by Bartley

“My success in passing the test on my first attempt was primarily due to CCNations, their time, efforts and patience in guiding me towards success. I really couldn’t have done so well without them. For this reason, I highly recommend this school to anyone who needs help with Spanish in any capacity.”

Lynn

You want to study by yourself? No problem. Now, you can buy all our material…

1. A study booklet (in Spanish and/or in English),
2. Flashcards of Ecuadorian national symbols.
3. Flashcards of important people and dates, and some other information.
4. 10 20-question-practice tests with answer key.
5. Audio of 17 interview questions (male and female voices).
Contact us today and find out more about how to enroll in our citizenship program or how to get our material.

You are not alone. Helping hands is there for you

You are not alone.
Enjoy your time while we take care of your groceries, medications, IESS bills, you name it.
We get your groceries, your medicine or run your errands Sunday through Friday from 8 AM to 6 PM.

We all wear face masks and gloves.

We are already helping some expat friends, former and current Spanish students who are very grateful for this service.

Our service has 3 simple steps:
(Please, when making your shopping list, think of one or two week’s worth of groceries)

Step 1. Send us your exact address (location where you want to receive your groceries) as well as your shopping list (if needed, include pictures of difficult items to find) through email or at our WhatsApp number. (New: You can also place or tell us your order over the phone)

Step 2. When groceries are delivered to your place, you can either…
• Pay cash to HHs (Helping Hands) representative who will deliver your products and whose id and photo will be sent to you.
• Deposit or wire money to any of our savings accounts (Pichincha, JEP or Guayaquil)
• Pay with credit card/ debit card, Visa or MasterCard (some commissions take place)
• Pay with PayPal (some commissions take place)

In any form of payment, include:

• transport fare (from Supermaxi Las Americas to your place and from there to our place downtown), which is usually $4 or $5, depending on the place you live.
• $0.50/$1 for boy/girl (supermarket packer)
• Please, also include, a love offering for HH.

Step 3. HHs will monitor the shopping from the very beginning till you receive everything ordered.

“Good Morning. Helping Hands’ service was amazing. They are extremely kind and helpful. They messaged when they had a question and were very helpful! They did a great job getting all items that were available on my list and helped me carry them up to my apartment and were so thoughtful and everything was in perfect condition. Even the ice was still totally frozen! Perfect! Oh, yes, I am already spreading the word of your wonderful service and I so appreciate this help.
Mary

“We have used many delivery grocery systems during the quarantine. Like many reading this recommendation, we are in a high-risk group and just don’t want to risk going into a grocery store right now.

So, for what it is worth, we can wholeheartedly and enthusiastically recommend Helping Hands to do your shopping and all errands. They supply a very detailed set of instructions, which are readily available on GringoPost. If you put their name in the search bar on top of the page their ads will appear. We submitted our grocery ‘wish’ list and they told us when they would be shopping and who would be handling it.

During the entire process we were updated constantly, they informed us of items that were out of stock and sent us pictures via our smartphones of what was available as possible substitutions. They can do this via WhatsApp or whatever way you prefer. We always knew where they were in the process, they even told us when they were approaching our building so we could be ready with our cart to upload our groceries.

It was the easiest, most professional and safest shopping process we have encountered, here or in the States. They offered multiple forms of payment and even brought change with them. They fully disclosed all costs up front, and gave us the receipt asking only that a donation be made to the church to continue their work with the poor.

The minimum ‘love gift’ is suggested at $10 for households.

We were so impressed and grateful that we offered more. Why? Because they use these offerings to feed and support our community, it just seemed right.

It is times like these that you actually do yourself and our community a favor. There is a double benefit of employing a professional group to do your shopping and errands, who donate their profits to feed the poor in Cuenca. It is beyond a relief and it is a heartwarming feeling.

I always hesitate to give recommendations because sometimes success is fleeting. So, on Monday I gave them another assignment. My Instant Pot broke several weeks ago and I was able to find another supplier for it in Loja they were able to ship it to Cuenca, but only to the central Servientrega office. I asked and for a small fee they provided a temporary power of attorney letter, identification for the person picking up the package at Servientrega and delivered it to our home. So, two interactions and two successes. We will definitely use them again.”
Doug

“This is a top-notch organization that shops and delivers groceries to your door. HHs Team (Helping Hands) made this such an easy experience checking frequently with me by What’s Apps to be sure the products I wanted were correct. They also double checked with me several times while at SuperMaxi and the pharmacy with photos from the items on the shelf in case substitutions were needed or several choices were available.

They were thorough, pleasant, responded quickly to email, and items were delivered in full the day after I contacted them.

I will continue using them and highly recommend this service.”
Simply the Best.
Linda

“Helping Hands is a true gem. Their shopping service at this time is a lifesaver. They shop carefully and make sure your order is correct. If they are unsure or need to substitute they will WhatsApp or call to be sure it is correct. They have taken care of our banking and bills. Trustworthy, timely, and makes the whole process easy and efficient. Do yourself a favor – make your life easier call HelpingHands. You won’t be sorry.”
Sandra

If you have any questions, please, do not hesitate to ask.
We are bilingual.
You can rely on us on…
– paying your bills
– grocery shopping
– cleaning and housekeeping

You’ll be glad you did.

Feeling adventurous? Want to do it your way?

While it is always great fun to get together with a small group of family or friends and set up a schedule for a tour, using my new tour bus; many times, people prefer to just rent a car because they do not need a guide or driver – they want to do it themselves. Go where they want to go, do what they want to do and even get off the beaten track. That’s where Cuenca Car Share comes in. Today I have two modern vehicles available for your use – it is not too late to call and schedule one of them.

Remember that another long weekend is coming up in a month and it would be a good idea to reserve early for the Easter weekend. Good Friday, April 2, is a national holiday here and there are many activities that occur on this 3-day weekend. One suggestion would be to worship with local congregations around Cuenca or to celebrate the Resurrection on Easter Sunday with a village congregation and experience the joy. Or, do whatever strikes your fancy that weekend.

Whenever you want to travel on your own and see the sights of Ecuador with yourself as the chauffeur, guide, and driver, call on me to schedule your car from Cuenca Car Share. If you want to form a group and go together, I can help you there, too. Reservations required.

Sweet, smooth, delicious and healthy

Ecuador’s finest organic liquid stevia for your health

Keeping our immune systems strong is very important now. And you can do that without any deprivation, just pure organic deliciousness.

Did you know that your body considers sugar as a poison, rushing fluid to the site?
Consider replacing your sugar with our new 100% Organic Liquid Stevia Sweetener.
It is especially important for the elderly, pre-diabetic or diabetic persons.

Our stevia is absolutely pure, made here in Ecuador, has a positively delicious taste — it is the best stevia I have tasted on the planet, and I have tried all the major brands. Stevia is recommended for diabetics or anyone wishing to limit their sugar intake, or their caloric intake. Customers are saying this is the best stevia they have ever tasted, with no aftertaste at all except pure, smooth deliciousness.

• 100% organic
• Vegan, all-natural, GMO-free, gluten-free
• No pesticides, artificial preservatives or chemicals of any kind
• Zero calories
• Low-carb or no-carb diets, keto-compatible
• Suitable for diabetics or anyone on a no or low-sugar diet
• Derived from an herb, does not spike the glycemic index as other sweeteners do
• Made with “Splendor Water”, a very healthy ingredient
• Bitter free sweetener with a smooth sugar taste

What makes our 100% organic stevia extract unique?

Our liquid stevia is a highly-concentrated direct extract. It is created form 100% organic Ecuadorian stevia leaves using our proprietary method, and not reconstituted from white powdered stevia extract (unlike most liquid stevia products on the market), leaving all the beneficial micronutrients intact.

Our stevia is made with the famous “Splendor Water”, a magical water from La Mana, Ecuador, which is itself is a health food because it comes from 150 meters under the earth through a closed system, and it has naturally occurring gold and silver in it…gold and silver have proven positive and healing effects on your body’s health. Splendor water has been tested in Germany and Switzerland as one of the most beneficial waters for humans on the planet; Masaru Emoto, the author of “Hidden Messages From Water” gave it very high marks.

The majority of stevias are made using the inorganic solvents methane, hexane or ethyl acetate. In fact, stevia leaves are not bitter and, although more expensive to manufacture, quality aftertaste-free stevia can be made via our natural, solvent-free process.

The result is an aromatic, highly-concentrated sweetener that retains the exquisite sweetness and vitality of the stevia plant but without the bitterness or aftertaste associated with other stevia products, in a convenient liquid form.

You can use our stevia in home baking, low-carb baking, add it to your yogurt and smoothies or to sweeten your hot and cold drinks. I am never without a small dropper bottle in my purse for cappuccinos and drinks out. Don’t leave home without it.

Bonus free gift: First-time customers will receive a purse-sized dropper bottle as a free gift to use on the go.

We will take orders in the order they are received. In stock now:

Regular size 8 fl. oz (240 ml)
Serving size: 6 -12 drops (depending on your personal taste)
Servings per container: 800 at 6 drops per serving
Price $45.

Personal size 2 fluid oz.
Price: $12.00 (bottle costs 2.00) his is a regular size dropper bottle, like the US, but organic and less expensive. Limited supply.

Email your order to spiritlifting@gmail.com
Indicate pick-up or delivery (delivery $2 with moto) ONLY ONE LEFT
Include: number bottles needed, your name, phone and address if delivery is desired.

Thank you for your loyal patronage. You are going to love this product. It also makes a great gift item for your beloveds, parents, or anyone whose health you care about, especially diabetics or pre-diabetics.

Recommendation for Leonardo Duran, Tech Guy EC, computer support

Yesterday morning I saw an ad in GringoPost for new Epson printers. Since I have been needing to buy one, I sent an email asking for the details and price. He responded rapidly and answered all my questions. I asked him when he could deliver it and he told me yesterday at 10 AM. I was shocked I could get it so quickly. He appeared right on time, proceeded to open the new box and set it up for me. He connected both my computers to it and even helped me with a little problem I was having with saving a file. He patiently explained everything to me so it was clear to me.

He said he can work on computers, printers, internet just about everything we expats would expect. If you find yourself in need of help, he told me he will respond the same day you reach out to him. I was very happy with his courteous manner and his knowledge.

Recommendation for Veronica Arpi, real estate

I wanted to again recommend Veronica Arpi if anyone is looking to buy or sell a property in Ecuador. This was my second closing while acting as a Power of Attorney for property owners in the USA. Veronica gave me step-by-step instructions to navigate the complex process. She did a mind boggling amount of work behind the scenes to complete the sale, transfer funds, pay taxes, pay fees, make referrals to attorneys, notaries, etc. She is fluent in English, and more importantly, understands the way Gringos like to do business. Let’s face it: anyone can show you a property (or place an ad here) but only a real professional knows how to buy/sell real estate here.

Recommendation for Madeleine Gonzalez Mensch, health insurance

I highly recommend Madeleine as broker for health insurance. I had many questions, as I think we all do, and she was knowledgeable and happy to answer them all. My last insurance company was not good and the broker just did not do their job at all.

I recently needed several tests, including a Cover PCR. Modeleine made the appointment and translated everything for me, via WhatsApp the entire 2 hours. The next day, she again was available to translate the results and the Dr’s recommendations for me. She made sure I had all the paperwork needed to apply for reimbursement, had a courier pick it up and filed it for me. She took very good care of my case and I appreciate her attention to detail, as well as my health. Just one week later, and the reimbursement is being sent to my bank.
