Free language exchange by YEES

A fun and relaxing environment to use your Spanish and English. Come and join us at Selina’s terrace (Calle Larga 7-93) every Saturday for a chance to practice with native English and Spanish speakers and meet new friends. This Exchange is basically a casual conversation where we switch languages every 30 minutes. This event is free, however, due to the pandemic, don’t forget to follow these directions:

– If the receptionist ask what do you want, tell him/her that you’re a member of #YEES and there’s a language exchange at the terrace that you’re attending.
– Even though Selina’s terrace is an open space and they have all the biosecurity measures, the pandemic isn’t over yet so don’t forget to keep social distance.
– The conversation will be spontaneous as usual. The only rule is switching languages every 30 minutes. You decide which language goes first.

July 31st, from 2 to 4 PM, Free event, Calle Larga 7-93, Cuenca.

Scratching posts for cats, made by Jesus

I am a manufacturer. I make different models and designs of scratching posts for cats with their little house and their different measures, the height of your preference.

– With excellent fabric, strong sisal and wood. Scratchers for cats allow us to release energy and anxiety.

– Scratching posts are something like mats where we can do yoga. There we can release all the tensions of cat life.

– Scratching de-stresses us a lot because even if they don’t believe, we can also suffer from anxiety or hyperactivity. This helps us not to damage the furniture at home.

I carry out and deliver to different provinces.

I have different designs.

Thank you all for being excellent customers.

Meet your 13 new best friends

Cream’O’Gurt Yogurt is made with organic milk, not fully pasteurized. It has 13 different identified bacterial strains and 250 billion live cultures/liter. That’s more than 17x the number of live cultures in the best competitive brand of yogurt!!!

And how many different species of bacteria are in the yogurt you’re eating now? Two? Maybe three? Hmmmm…

Here are the 13 strains of bacteria identified so far in Cream’O’Gurt yogurt:
• Bifidobacterium animalis (also known as Bifidus regularis)
• Bifidobacterium bifidum
• Bifidobacterium lactis
• Bifidobacterium longum
• Enterococcus faecium
• Lactobacillus acidophilus
• Lactobacillus casei
• Lactobacillus delbrueckii
• Lactobacillus johnsonii
• Lactobacillus gasseri
• Lactobacillus plantarum
• Lactobacillus rhamnosus
• Saccharomyces boulardii.

Most of us are concerned about our health, as we should be. For thousands of years, people have been enjoying the health benefits of eating fermented foods, including yogurt.

Scientists have only recently begun learning how vital our gut health is for our overall well being. But it seems to be key for much of our health.

Right here in Cuenca, we have access to the absolute best yogurt on the planet. Why not take advantage of it? You’ll be happy that you did.

Cream’O’Gurt yogurt comes in 14 different flavors. Check them out on DEFY’s website, on the Drinkable Yogurt link.

Delivery is by bicycle or electric vehicle in Cuenca and free for orders $25 and over.

The weekly order cut-off is at noon on Wednesday with deliveries on Friday and Saturday.

We’re looking forward to treating you and Planet Earth, with dignity.

Wednesday, August 4th at 12 PM, Jesus Arriaga 4-69

Real Estate

1 bedroom, fully furnished Cajas condo has spectacular views

A brand-new fully furnished condo in an exclusive gated community on the rim of El Cajas National Park has just been put on the market. This glorious, one-bedroom, one-bath 1000 square foot corner condo is built to North American standards with a fireplace, heated floors, open concept living and dining areas and an outdoor patio. The condo is one of the biggest and best now available in the complex, perfect as a deluxe Andes homes or as weekend getaways, vacation rental, or investment property.

Located in Valle Encantado, the condo is safely nestled in a high-end development consisting of two, 2-unit condo buildings surrounding inner courtyards, and two separate homes set on 10 acres of prime forest and riverfront land with views rivalling any in the world.

And, with a recent restriction on all new buildings in the El Cajas National Park region, due to its UNESCO Biosphere status, this high-end development is the last complex that can be built in this area … a major consideration for buyers looking for solid returns on investment.

The condo has an open concept floor plan with upgrades that include 50 Mega Etapa Fiber Internet, Peruvian Travertine floors with radiant heat, large fieldstone fireplaces, tongue, and groove woodwork, cathedral ceilings with open rafters, granite-top kitchen islands, plus small Flagstone patios. It also has million-dollar views.

The windows are vinyl clad with Tempered and laminated security glass, UV protection, and sound blocks that ensure peace and quiet inside your home. The units also include 8′ solid wooden doors, baseboards, extension jams, and casings made out of solid wood, plus granite sills under all of the doors and windows.

The gated community—with 24-hour security, an electric entry gate, and multiple camera security systems–is safe and secure, yet within walking distance to nature’s bounty.

Known for its incredible hiking paths through evergreen cloud forests and for its hundreds of lakes and lagoons, El Cajas National Park is home to rich wildlife including Andean condors, giant hummingbirds, llamas, wild horses, and raccoon-like coatis. Trout fishing, bird watching, exploring Incan ruins, biking, and just relaxing are all that you can expect when you live or vacation in one of the most unspoiled mountain retreats in the world.

The HOA for the unit is approximately $160 per month and covers sewer and solid waste disposal, security, land maintenance, management fees and insurance on the exterior of the complexes.

This brand-new fully furnished condo in an exclusive gated community on the rim of El Cajas National Park is listed for $170,000.

Furnished. Negotiable. Pets are allowed.
