Just Buddy

Hi, my name is Buddy (Amigo). I am sad because my two brothers were adopted, and I am the only one left looking for my forever family. I am in a home with six rescue dogs; one of them is my mom. There really are too many dogs here for me to stay. If you have room in your heart and home for a super soft, fluffy, and sweet nine-week old guy; please contact Alison and let her know. She will even pay half of the cost for neutering when I am old enough. I have had my first shots and deworming. Thank you, Buddy

About Jan: Considered by many to be a “World-Class” massage therapist, Jan Wallace has been performing massage therapy since her original licensing by the Oregon State Board of Health in 1983. She has studied almost every massage technique out there, and over the course of 30 years, blended the best-of-the best into her own massage style that’s an incredibly relaxing, therapeutic, invigorating, and an almost “spiritual” experience.

She can perform very light to very deep tissue techniques, and encourages the client to express their preferences, so she can create a custom experience for them.

New client’s first visit is always $10 off this price, therefore $30
Schedule at:


“I highly recommend you experiencing a massage with Jan Wallace, an excellent masseuse. I cannot give her enough accolades. Being the physically active woman that I am, I have had many massages in my lifetime and she easily ranks in the top 1%. No kidding. Give her a try. You’ll be so happy you did.” Eve Donald, Cuenca

“Jan gave me a fantastic massage. Her apartment is easy to find and the massage room is very spa-like. She’s easy to communicate with and makes sure you’re comfortable at all times. I highly recommend her.” Sandy Brown, Cuenca

“I had a great massage experience with Jan. She listens to your needs and pressure preference. The atmosphere is quiet, comfortable and relaxing. She is conveniently located. I would highly recommend a massage from Jan.” Adrien Winger, Cuenca

“I had overstressed a muscle in my back last week and was in a lot of pain. Jan lives in the same building as I do so I called her and she was able to fit me into her schedule. After 90 minutes with Jan, the pain was gone! I was hoping simply for the pain to lessen, but it was totally gone. Needless to say, I think she is great and highly recommend her!” Linda Chase, Cuenca

“I had three or four massages with Jan while I was in Cuenca a few months ago, just after she opened. I would second the comment above about having had many massages in my lifetime and the fact that Jan is in the top 1%. I’m a retired medial professional and can’t wait for my next visit with Jan.

1,808 new cases of COVID-19 this last Sunday in Ecuador

Ecuador this Sunday added 1,808 new cases of COVID-19 and its level of contagion during the year that the pandemic lasts in the country, amounted to 286,155 positives, according to the latest report from the Ministry of Public Health. For the statistics of deaths, it reached 11,085 confirmed deaths with the disease, to which 4,753 “probable deaths” are added, for a total of 15,811 deaths, the statistics of the Health portfolio specify.

The report reiterates that the Andean province of Pichincha is the one that accumulates the highest number of infections with 100,480 positive cases, which represents an increase of 364 in the last 24 hours. It is followed by the coast of Guayas with 36,351 infections, 312 more than on Saturday, and surpasses Manabí (20,529), Azuay (17,367), El Oro (12,625), Tungurahua (10,216), Loja (10,345), Imbabura (8,618), Cotopaxi (8,127), Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas (7,818), Los Ríos (7,577) and Esmeraldas (6,077).

The problem is that Ecuadorians do not make good use of the mask or use non-approved masks. They care more about what a good mask costs than their own health. According to the World Health Organization, KN95 filter masks are still the most suitable to prevent the spread of the deadly virus.

I am Andrés Guillermo, distributor in Cuenca and Azuay of KN95 masks with filter, made in the USA. These masks are not the ones sold in Shopping Centers, they are masks with sanitary registration, laminated and with high protection. Its use is comfortable, it avoids dizziness, headaches, fogging of lenses or glasses. They are lightweight and are placed behind the ears, but above all 100% safe and reliable. I sell them by unit or box of 20 masks. Contact me at 099 647 2877, WhatsApp or call me.

Recommendation for Dr. Santiago Romo, orthopedist specialist

I normally don’t write recommendations, however when you meet a Doctor that offers tremendous service, I feel it’s warranted to share my experience with the Gringo community. I was experiencing pain in my right knee and contacted Dr. Romo who was highly recommended. He offered to see me at his office the following morning, or would come to my place to offer help. I met him the following morning in his office and he completed his initial evaluation. He was very clear on my options and I decided to receive a cortisone shot. It was painless and he explained everything that was happening so that I was informed of the process. Two weeks later and my knee is much better. Thank-you Dr. Santiago Romo and I would suggest anyone with joint issues contact him.

Recommendation for Hosteria Duran, tourism, restaurant, spa

I enjoyed a great meal on Saturday in Hosteria Duran, specifically Tucuman Restaurant. On weekends they are offering a buffet. I refill three times my dish and it was so good. The food was delicious, I enjoyed live music, beautiful songs and the view of my table was amazing. The buffet is around $20 and it is not expensive because I ate a variety of delicious food: meat and seafood, many desert options and unlimited soft drinks as coke and natural fruit juices. Good service and people very kind, all time asking for what you need. Highly recommended.

Kimchi at Thai Connection

Facts about Thailand:

People often marvel at the forests and jungles of Thailand, but there used to be more. What most people don’t realize is that over one hundred years ago, nearly all of northern Thailand was covered in hardwood forest. Today, about a quarter of that forest is left. Only Singapore has lost more trees. For this reason, logging is completely banned in Thailand,

This week we have fresh delicious Kimchi, 400 gr. for just $5.

Come and enjoy our specials of the week:

Shrimp Fried Rice with Basil. $8.50
Drunken Noodles $8.50
Spicy Korean Ramen $8.50
Sweet and sour Pork $8.50

Of course our delicious Carrot Cake and authentic Thai Iced Tea.
