Food donation needed

Hello Dear Expats. We are looking for good people who can help donning dog food, medicine, vaccines or some money for a bunch of dogs, rescued in very bad condition or runaways in Cuenca city.

We have a few old dogs in need of medicine. They used to be here in Cuenca, but now they are in the biggest property in Paute to make their lives better and free.

You can go to visit the dogs anytime you want. Can stay the weekend helping take care them or just relaxing. We have a little house for guests in the property.

This weekend we had a Melinda helping with the dogs to Irlanda.

Any donation will make the difference to keep rescuing and feeding those little souls.

Real Stories from the Hogar – Getting back into the swing of things

Now that August is behind us — everyone seemed to be on vacation — things are ramping up at the Hogar. Anka, our volunteer doctor, is back and the university students will be back in the next few weeks. This year we will have 12 students and we will provide a wider range of services to those in need here at Hogar de Esperanza (Home of Hope).

This past week was incredibly busy with providing food supports for over 300 people. Every person is vetted and interviewed by our Social Worker. With the hospitals reopening, we are also seeing an increase in patients coming from the Amazon and other regions outside Cuenca with us scheduling appointments and providing medications.

One case particularly emotional this week was of a Venezuelan woman from near Machala. She was rushed to the public hospital and had to undergo an emergency caesarian. Her baby was born three months premature. She and her older son have been able to stay with us, receive supports and we have been able to work with the hospital to make sure that this baby, although in critical condition, receives all the support it needs. Thankfully, the baby is doing better.

To support our work, you can do so at: https://www.givingway.com/donate/fundacion-hogar-de-esperanza. For other donation options, including tax receipt or bank transfer, you can do so at: https://hogaresperanza.org/en/donations/ Thank you for your continued support.

Woody Allen and I at Coney Island on a movie set

Woody Allen Revisited
By Robert Leaman Sanders


I met Woody Allen one day a very long time ago on a movie set. I live in Malibu now but at the time I was living in New York City. My agent called and she said: “You’re working on a movie called “Annie Hall”. Here’s the address out in Brooklyn. Write this down. You are going to Coney Island. Also, this afternoon you want to go see Bernie, the hairstylist for this shoot, get your haircut, and be on the set 8 AM sharp tomorrow. Good-bye.”

I did everything correctly.

Turns out I was an extra. I was the guy who would be in the background of the final film who throws softballs at lead filled milk bottles at one of Coney Island’s carnival concessions. So, there I was. I’m in a tee-shirt and jeans with a great haircut to make me look like a typical American young fellow from the nineteen forties era. I have 3 softballs in my arms and I am quite ready to start the throwing once I hear somebody from somewhere shout out the words – “and action!” 7 feet away from me is the one and only Mister Woody Allen standing around holding a clipboard full of papers scratching his chin. Yes. I broke the cardinal rule. I walked right up to Mr. Allen. He started things off and he said: “Hi.” I said: “Would you allow me to introduce myself?” He says: “Yes. I’ll allow you to introduce yourself. Introduce yourself.” I gave him my name, smiled big, and explained that since I respected and loved his directorial talents, so much so, to the point where I could have considered being President of his fan club, that he could depend on me should there be anything more I could do for him as an actor in the movie. Meaning, anything more than simply throwing balls at old fashioned carnival milk bottles. Woody Allen replied: “Oh. Okay fine. I’ll keep that in mind. Right now, however, is a very good time for you to take your position and start throwing the balls.”

Sometimes a large dog bed needs . . . a fitted sheet?

These large and the super-large dog beds already have removable waterproof mattress covers and removable water-resistant bed covers for damage control. But over time, you might also notice a certain doggy smell and then you just want to do a quick and easy wash. These fitted sheets were custom-made by a Cuenca seamstress out of thick, high-quality fleece. Aren’t they nice?

Cat scratchers and towers

Cats are curious, fearless animals and they love to play. Life locked up at home can be boring for them without games or surprises. Remember that they need to meet their needs and scratching is one of their basic instincts, both to file their nails, as a form of play, for anxiety or insecurity or to defend their territory. Many times we get angry because our cat has scratched the sofa or the curtains, but we should ask ourselves, are we giving it any alternative?

Scratchers for cats are a good gift for them, it helps them to stay active and keep their nails in good condition. Plus, it’s yours, yours alone. Something that cats love.

– 5 reasons why your cat should use a scratching post:

1. To keep their nails healthy and strong.
2. To stay active and avoid health problems.
3. To play and release stress
4. To create shelter
5. For their curious instinct.

Constructed entirely of good wood, strong and stable solids, with strong sisal and high-quality carpet cloth.

I have different designs and models. Prices vary from each one.

I also manufacture scratchers based on your budget.
You will like it a lot.

Rosa Linda, roses with love

Hello beautiful community,

I have some surprises for you: For my clients who receive their roses every week, I have a family bouquet for them. It contains a mixture of roses and sunflowers, the best and most durable. Sunflowers are flowers with a lot of solar energy. They bring a lot of joy.

The price is $10 for my clients who ask me every week or every two weeks, take advantage of the fact that I only have them seasonally. If you are not my client with subscription, write me to know more.

I also have mini succulent gardens if you wish, in addition to private yoga classes or walks in and out of the city in case you need transportation.

The Hop Factory: beer and coffee delivery

Come to The Hop Factory this Thursday and Friday from 1:30 to 7:30 PM, for some great craft beer. We do home deliveries on Thursday from 8 AM to noon.

We are on the east side of Cuenca, Calle del Himno y Bandera Nacional. We have darts and chess boards available to play, as well as outdoor seating.

Our available beers are: Bourbon Barrel (11.5%) $4, IPA (6%) $3, Stout (6%) $3, American Amber Ale (6%) $3. We make a truly “old school” beer that is unfiltered and naturally carbonated.

Low cal/low carb beers: $3
Our Rowdy Rabbit is an all-natural Light Blonde Ale that only has 84 calories and 5.8 carbohydrates but still has 4% abv. This slightly hazy beer is light in color/calories/carbohydrates but still has a Citrusy Tart flavor (15 IBU’s) that is created with not only our hops/grains but stands out because of our use of coriander.

Our Light Jamaica and Light Maracuya (Passionfruit) beers are even easier on your waistline. 72 calories, 4.9 carbohydrates, 3.5% abv. and they both go down like juice. These shandy-like beers ended up very popular with our taste testers (The Hop Family (c;).

We are also the only place you can get Black Honey and Café Dona Julita brand coffees. Black Honey is our coffee liqueur made in Vilcabamba. Makes a great White Russian (16% abv $15/750ml bottle).
New coffee prices. The coffee we have available in both beans and ground. “Premium” is a medium-dark roast $4. 50/400g,
“Gourmet” is a medium/Columbian roast $5.50/400g and our “Honey” is a medium dark roast originally created just for our coffee liqueur $6.50/400G. Honey we will need a week advance for the order so we can special order what you need.

Please have all orders in by Wednesday to ensure on-time delivery. $18 minimum for free delivery under $18 we add $2.

Recommendation for Ida, stellar housekeeper

For the last year, Ida has been my loyal and efficient housekeeper. She is looking for new clients. She lost her regular employment during the pandemic and has recently lost 2 of her clients. She is a single mother of a delightful daughter.

Her work is exceptional and she has a robust work ethic. She is honest and reliable. Doing a good job is important to her. She remains masked the entire time she’s in my home (and she has been vaccinated), and does meticulous work in cleaning (much better than I do). She is the greatest pleasure I have ever afforded myself.

I highly recommend Ida. Ida is a Spanish speaker with some English but it has never been an issue. She was a lovely disposition and seems to enjoy the work. I love her.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Recommendation for Monica Gonzaga, facilitator

My wife and I would like to recommend Facilitator Monica Gonzaga. She was recommended to me by another gringo and he was right!

I bought a used motorcycle and she handled the very complicated process of transfer of ownership, matriculation and inspection.

Last month, it was time for us to get our permanent visas. We gave her the power of attorney and the proper paperwork. With the power of attorney, she was able to do all the footwork which included travel to the Azogues office twice without us.

She speaks perfect English as does her assistant Marta.

Luz is the most conscientious hard-working house cleaner I have ever met. She is very punctual and self-disciplined and motivated to do a great job for her customers. I have not met anyone who could clean my house as well as I could until I met Luz. She is also very caring and loving to our pets. She is excited to be able to walk our schnauzer and she is very gentle with our 12-year old cat. I have no qualms or concerns about leaving our pets with Luz. Her prices are very reasonable and I think they’re a little low for all she does.

Recommendation for Manuel Tapia, contractor

Manuel has been doing renovations, repairs for us for the last 10 years.

Anything from a driveway, pool upgrade, water pump replacement, ceramic tiles throughout the house, roof upgrade, califon repair, carpentry, electrical work, you name it. Right now, he´s building two houses in the area, and although he´s based in Yunguilla, he´s done work in Cuenca, Challubamba and Paute.

He´s honest to a fault, and in years past, we have left for extended periods of time while he was doing work inside and outside our house. Doesn´t speak English, but I´ll be more than glad to act as translator to help both sides.

Recommendation for Handyman Olger Avila,

I asked a dear friend for a recommendation for a handyman to help with several household projects. He recommended Olger Avila, and I couldn’t be more pleased. I needed a replacement tempered glass for a skylight. With his extensive network of connections, Olger obtained the perfect glass at half the price I had been quoted from a glass store here in Cuenca. I wanted some inexpensive shelves constructed to specific dimensions for my laundry room, and Olger built attractive shelves that were sturdy and strong. He also flawlessly plumbed an outdoor faucet for our terrace. The breadth of his knowledge and experience is extensive. Oh, and he speaks flawless English (from having lived in the US for many years). I highly recommend Olger for all “handyman” projects.

Parenthetically, Olger also provides transportation services in his large SUV. He drove my friends to the airport in Guayaquil. He also provides day tours to various sites of interest around Cuenca.

Beachfront property in San Clemente with architectural plans and permits

This is an investor’s dream: Oceanfront property in San Clemente, Ecuador with architectural plans ready and waiting for the right developer to take it to the next level. This spectacular 1,528 square meter beachfront property has already been designed by an award-winning architect in Cuenca and includes 2-years work getting full engineering studies and approval from the Municipality. This means a local or international investor or developer can begin construction immediately — a rare opportunity to cash in and build on this prime location on the coast.

The original plans, shown here, envisions Edificio San Clemente as an exclusive oceanfront condominium, with 18 apartments and two penthouses. The two and three-bedroom units range in size from 107 square meters (1,151 square feet) to 190 square meters (2,045 square feet). Each unit has at least one underground parking space and a terrace with spectacular ocean views.

Just steps from the gorgeous Playa Punta Bikini beach, the property plans to also include a 20 meter-long designer swimming pool, expansive green spaces, lush trees and gardens. San Clemente is a small, relaxed fishing village located in the Manabi Province of Ecuador, known for its many ancient cultures and archaeological sites — many of which are close to the Edificio San Clemente development. The village of San Clemente is strategically located just 30 minutes from the city of Bahia de Carácquez (Ecuador’s first Eco-City) and Porteviejo, as well as 30 minutes from Ecuador’s fifth-largest city, Manta. Manta, a city of more than 300,000, has an airport with several daily flights to Quito and Guayaquil, good medical clinics, a brand-new shopping mall, as well as first-class restaurants and hotels.

San Clemente has delicious local restaurants, full pharmacies and small shops and stores, beautiful beaches and bluffs, and is home to the artisan designed hotel and spa, Palma Azul, with its pool, spa, bar, hammocks, lagoon, tennis courts, and ocean view dining in the lovely Cocomar Restaurant. San Clemente has also been featured in two “House Hunter International” television shows and is a popular beach resort for both expats and locals. Its proximity to three of Manabi’s largest and most cosmopolitan cities make this beachfront property even more valuable as a weekend retreat, vacation getaway or as a peaceful oceanside playground.

As Ecuador’s coastal real estate prices continue to rise, this is a great opportunity to purchase land for your own development dream or to follow an award-winning architect’s plans and dive right in for more immediate profits, This beautiful oceanfront property, full architectural design plans for Edificio San Clemente, and complete engineering studies are available for $330,000. Please enjoy our video to see more of this incredible oceanfront property ready for development: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Jkgi7ZP0aE&t=1s

$330,000, negotiable.

Address: San Clemente, San Clemente.

Only 2 condos left in new construction, downtown building with elevator

There are only 2 apartments left in the high-end downtown Cuenca, new construction project, Casa del Huerto. 1 one-bedroom unit, and one two-bedroom condo. The one-bedroom is $109,000 and the 2-bedroom is $148,000. Casa del Huerto is a luxury residential project in historic El Centro that is being built by ISAM, Cuenca’s premier downtown development company. Only two condos are left, so now is the time to reserve your spot, and get ready for a taste of the best of downtown living in this fabulous new elevator building.

The building is located in a patrimonial historic colonial building in the heart of Cuenca and will feature 18 modern, light, and airy one and two-bedroom apartments and two commercial spaces. Some of the condos will be located in the rehabilitated central portion of this historic house, while others will be in a contemporary wing to be built in the back of the building. Interior patios, including a traditional orchard (huerto), a large rooftop terrace with views of beautiful, downtown Cuenca (and even the iconic Blue Domes), and an urban vegetable garden, plus two elevators will make this one of the most sought-after buildings in Old Town. The two remaining units are in the original historic part of the building.

What’s most exceptional for a modern condo in downtown, is that Casa del Huerto will have two elevators.

The completion date for Casa del Huerto is scheduled for June 2022. If you’ve been keeping an eye on the revival and renaissance of real estate in downtown Cuenca, you’ve no doubt heard of ISAM. Founded in 2007, ISAM is one of the most highly respected development companies in Ecuador with a special reputation among Gringos and overseas clients due to their North American standard construction practices. The company’s projects have been featured in prestigious design and architectural publications including The New York Times, Revista Habitar, Casas, Vistazo, Construcción & Diseño, ARQ. and the book 1000x Architecture of the Americas, among others.

ISAM has produced six residential buildings in El Centro since its inception, and recently received the prestigious Fray Jose Maria Vargas Architectural Award for excellence in architecture from the Cuenca Municipality for their last project, Casas del Ciprés. In 2019 Casas del Ciprés also won first prize for “Best Design” in Ecuador at the XXI Pan American Architecture Biennial in Quito and received a second prize in the International category. The new project, Casa del Huerto, will be located on Benigno Malo between Calle Larga and Juan Jaramillo in a prime downtown location near restaurants, cafes, museums, shops and just four blocks from the center of town and Parque Calderon.

The building is also only one block from the lovely Tomebamba River and its walking and bike paths, as well as to one of the bridges taking you into the new section of Cuenca. The developers have shared their desire to blend the old and the new seamlessly, providing an opportunity to live in one of Cuenca’s beautiful colonial buildings, while having all the modern amenities including tons of natural light, double-paned windows where needed, high ceilings, modern lines, and special architectural details that will make this property shine.

Original flooring, beams, doors, tin ceilings, and tiles will be kept wherever possible in the colonial section of the building. There is currently a lack of quality innovative downtown buildings with modern touches and rarely an elevator building except in commercial buildings that have one or two condos and the rest of businesses, so these two remaining Casa del Huerto units are sure to go fast — especially with ISAM’s reputation and appeal. If you’re interested in reviewing floorplans, seeing price plans and sizes of these condos, or would like to meet with the developers to discuss specific condos and see 3-d renderings, please contact Ashley at Ecuador At Your Service at http://ecuadoratyourservice.com

Don’t lose this chance to own in this high-end downtown new construction project, Casa del Huerto
