General question: how do clothing prices compare to US?
Are women’s business suits really costly?
Can I find a one-piece swimsuit?
What about hiking books with really good tread? Good walking shoes? Good arch support?
Some of us have been helping to feed 14 of the poorest families in Ricaute. We buy the cheapest rice and beans available, in bulk, and take it to them. A few months ago we raised $400 and gave them food, but they need more. Ricaute is not a big city, so these people can’t go out on the streets and sell items or beg like in Cuenca…or not as successfully, at least.
I have included some photos of people receiving their food.
Thank you for all who helped last time, and the people want to thank you.
Please donate what you can to my paypal at LiveFoodFactor@yahoo.com. Or if you have food (nonperishable) you can give to Soledad at La Yunta restaurant while dining there.
My paypal is LiveFoodFactor@yahoo.com and I am Susan Schenck.

This is Leonardo, Cuenca’s #1 gardner and landscaper. Many expats have contacted me asking about indoor plants. Some do not have outdoor space and felt they might enjoy having live plants in their homes. Others felt better having something to watch grow while they spent more time inside. Sadly most expressed having disappointing experiences after picking up plants at Plaza de las Flores.
Either they brought pests into their home infecting their other plants or the plants withered and died because the soil was poor or their apartment didn’t have the right conditions for the plants. To have the best chance at having a rewarding stress-free experience which is the goal, a little research and some planning has to be done first.
Haircuts are one of the first things people notice when you make a slight alteration,” says Clemencia, stylist and owner of C&C. “When we take the time to make a shift, others notice. It may be a trim in our bangs, new color, or a whole new style — but our hair makes a statement.”
Also, personal hygiene is keeping the body clean, and helps prevent the spread of germs. Grooming is caring for fingernails and hair examples of these activities would be styling hair, shaving, trimming and painting fingernails.
