New visa info needed

I would like to extend my temporary visa for another two years. With the new laws just a week or two ago, will I have to redo all my paper work just like I did when I first filed for my visa or will it be possible to just pay a fee and fill out a new form?

Thank You for all your help.

Thank you from the Best Gardener 2021

In behalf of my family and myself, I wanted to extend our gratitude to the GringoPost community for voting me the Best Gardener for the second year in a row. It is an honor to be able to do what I love and to make this community happy doing it.

My clients range from people who want to green up their interior space with healthy happy house plants to people who want to grow organic food in their outdoor spaces, all the way to people who want to landscape their dream home. Whatever your project whatever you budget I am here to help.

Plants make us healthier and happier and I am proud and happy to be Cuenca’s own ‘Plant Guy’. I’ve got it all from rich black soil, starter plants, established shrubs and focal plants, to fertilizers and yes firewood. You name and if I don’t have what you need, I’ll find it. You don’t have to put off feeling good about your space.

Please call me if you need my help. Stay safe and if you want to pick your plants from the comfort of your home I can share pictures via WhatsApp.

Dogs and Cats in Yunguilla need our help

For the rights of domestic and companion animals (Dogs and Cats). Some months ago members of the Santa Isabel Firefighters (Bomberos) had started a rescue foundation with literally little or no funding.

My 18-year-old goddaughter, Sara, is now in the process of going through the training program to become a Santa Isabel firefighter, and she brought this to my attention. She is a true animal lover and caregiver, and has since adopted two stray dogs. I have visited the Firefighters station where the dogs and cats are housed and cared for, and have offered to volunteer in any way that I can, and I know they can use additional help, financial and otherwise.

Hello all, I just moved to this wonderful city a few weeks ago, and am now seeking full or part time employment. I was a general bldg. contractor for 22 years in San Diego, California. My trade specialty is carpentry, but I am also proficient in most of the trades.

I have also spent quite a bit of time working with kids of all ages with or without disabilities. I excel at sales, speak decent Spanish, and I am also an artist. I’m doing a few murals here in Cuenca, but those are smaller projects and I definitely need more work.

I’m open minded and so far am enjoying starting a new life in Ecuador. If you think you know of something that may be a fit, give me a call,

To use masks with high efficiency, doctors ask for variants of Covid

Guaranteeing or ensuring that the mask that you are going to use has high protection efficiency is the recommendation that doctors and infectologists in Ecuador are giving in the face of the variants or mutations of COVID-19 that circulate in the country and that are more contagious.

“The mask becomes a fundamental piece for you to work, do your activities. You need something that fixes your face well, the only ones that fix well are the highly effective ones”, says Washington Alemán, physician-clinician and expert in infectious diseases, who considers it vital that citizens try to use a good mask at this time. that guarantees adequate protection.

Vulnerable groups such as the elderly, people with pre-existing diseases, catastrophic diseases and others at risk should use a highly effective mask, such as the KN 95 type with filter to improve their breathing.

In the case of masks that guarantee high protection, such as type K95 with filter FFP2, FFP1 (the last two, European versions), among others, only one mask should be used. Not two, the experts quote. Nor two surgical at the same time.

I am Andrés Guillermo, authorized distributor for Cuenca and Azuay of these masks, imported from the USA, comfortable, light, adaptable to any face, their use does not cloud the lenses, they can be used by children or adults. I sell them by unit or by box of 20 units. Laminated to avoid manipulation. Contact me whatsapp 099 647 2877 or call me, free home service.

Why choose a tall coffee?

Enjoying a good coffee is one of the most common traditions in most cultures around the world. Coffee can be found in countless varieties, flavors, and prices.

There are two varieties of coffee trees, Arabica and Robusta. Arabica-type coffee is considered Premium and produces beans with the best flavor. Arabica coffee beans require very special conditions to grow. The coffee tree is highly susceptible to diseases and pests.

Once Arabica coffee is grown under ideal conditions, it must be processed correctly to bring premium coffee to your cup. Manual harvesting is important to ensure that only the reddest and ripest coffee cherry trees are harvested and used in the process. After being harvested, the coffee beans must be dried in the sun before being roasted by the experts.

I’m Andrés Guillermo, I take it to your home at no additional cost, I sell it in promotions of two or three bags at an incredible price. Do not miss out on the opportunity to taste a coffee harvested at 1300 meters above sea level, contact me WhatsApp 099 647 2877 or call me, it will be a pleasure to serve you at home at no additional cost.

Recommendation for Mustafa Aladawi tech master, computer tech

Whenever we have problems with our electronic devices there is only one person we call… Mustafa Aladawi. We may have to wait a few days for him to fit us into his busy schedule but believe me, he is worth the wait. When he comes to our home, we are always sure the problem will get fixed. He has worked on our computers, phones, fire stick and when our computers became too old to even handle Windows 10, he told us exactly what we should look for in a new computer. No pressure… he tells us our options and we make the decisions. It’s amazing to watch him zip through our fire stick channels. Mustafa is always punctual and he charges a very reasonable rate. If you have an electronic issue, we fully recommend Mustafa with no hesitation.

Recommendation for: Dr. Juan Ordonez, Dentist

I highly recommend Dr. Juan Ordonez for dentistry. Both my husband and I have seen Dr Ordonez. My husband lost a crown shortly after we moved to Cuenca. Dr Ordonez created a new crown and installed it. My husband is happier with the replacement crown than he was with the original.

I recently had my teeth cleaned by Dr Ordonez and he did a great job. I also told him that I thought I had lost part of a filling. Sure enough, I had lost part of a filling which Dr Ordonez was able to repair that same day (last week). Dr Ordonez also found a small cavity which he fixed today. For both tooth repairs, he did not use Novacaine which kind of freaked me out the first time as I am a baby with pain. But – I felt no pain with either tooth! I love not having to deal with the subsequent numbness from Novacaine after the visit with the dentist.

I will definitely go back to Dr. Ordonez for cleaning in 6 months and fillings or crowns etc. as needed. The cleaning fee was $40 and $40 for each filling.

His English is very adequate to explain what is needed and he is very gentle while working.

Recommendation for Negroni, restaurant

We went to Negroni for dinner on Valentine’s Day. What a lovely evening we had. The menu is terrific, the food is delicious, and the service is first class. Really any restaurant that is managed by Giovanni Gonzalez always proves to be the best of the best.

The views from Negroni are the most beautiful in Cuenca, and the fact that you can eat outside, or even when you are eating inside, the large windows give great ventilation makes it a safe dining spot.

We are going back for our anniversary on the 27th, and we can’t wait.

Recommendation for Melody of Plants / Primavera, beauty products / cleaners

I have been using Melody of Plants / Primavera products for a few years now and love them just as much today as I did when I first tried them. Their shampoos are gentle but my hair has never been shinier and only a couple of squirts gets all the gunk out of your hair and it’s squeaky clean.

Besides their shampoo, I use their dish soap, laundry detergent/softener, hand soap, and facial scrub & mask. All their products are natural and safe for the environment and are excellent quality.

I was pleasantly surprised when I tried their hand soap foamer. The bottle shows you where to fill it with their hand or dish soap and then you fill it the rest of the way with water… It comes out as foamy hand soap just like the ones I have used in the US. Only this one is reusable and you can control the type of soap you put in them. I have 4 bathrooms and will soon have one in each.

I’m sure if you contact them they will send you a list of all their items.

Baa Baa Little Lamb you are so succulent

Have we got a special for you. We have the finest baby spring lamb legs anywhere. Only at your King Smokehouse. To celebrate this fabulous meat, we offer a special recipe and a free rustic bread mix with each lamb order. What could be better? With our weather so springlike (????) we wanted to share another kitchen-tested King Smokehouse recipe. This week we are featuring our amazingly tender Leg of Lamb with King Smokehouse Hasselbeck potatoes. This recipe can be adapted for your slow cooker (Slow Cooker adaption: just sear on all sides and put in slow cooker for 6-8 hours on a bed of peeled carrots and potatoes and 1 cup of white wine, water or chicken stock).

Smokehouse lamb:

1 (5 to 6 pound) trimmed bone-in leg of lamb
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons ground black pepper

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil.
2. Pat lamb dry with paper towels. Using a sharp knife, score the top side of the lamb by making shallow cuts all over.
3. In a small bowl, combine garlic, olive oil, rosemary, thyme, Dijon, salt and pepper.
4. Place lamb, fat side up, on a rack in the prepared roasting pan. Spread garlic mixture evenly over the lamb, rubbing in thoroughly into the scored cuts.
5. Place into oven and roast until it reaches an internal temperature of 135 degrees F for medium, about 1 hour 30 minutes to 1 hour 45 minutes, or until desired doneness. Let rest 15 minutes before slicing.
6. Serve immediately with mini Hasselback potatoes.

Smokehouse hasselback potatoes:

• 1 1/2 pounds petite gold potatoes
• 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
• Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
• 1 1/2 tablespoons minced fresh basil leaves
• 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives
• 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley leaves
• 3 slices of King Smokehouse bacon crumbled
• 1 clove garlic, finely grated

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Using a sharp knife, make crosswise cuts in each potato, about 1/8-inch apart, stopping about 1/4 inch from the bottom.
3. Place potatoes in a single layer, cut side up, onto the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
4. Place into oven and bake until tender and crisp, about 45-50 minutes.
5. In a small bowl, combine remaining 4 tablespoons olive oil, basil, chives, parsley and garlic; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
6. Serve potatoes immediately, drizzled with olive oil mixture and topped with the bacon.

The Viet-Cajun Shrimp Boil has come to Cuenca

Fusion food. It is some of the best food served and it is now available here in Cuenca. Vietnamese and Cajun spices fused to bring you a jumbo shrimp boil like you’ve never experienced before. This meal comes with 6 jumbo shrimp (we’re talkin’ big), sausage, potatoes and corn cooked to perfection. This is not a meal for those who are not hungry and even if you are, you will have a challenging time finishing all the food that comes with this meal. The best part is the cost, only $8.50.

Order early because these shrimp boils will sell out.
