Temporary visa

Hello everyone,

I am married to my wife for over 35 years but never kept a marriage certificate.
However, to process our visa we have to submit a marriage certificate.

My question is:

Can we obtain a new marriage certificate here in Cuenca and submit it?
If so, where can we get one, and is it easy to obtain?

Thank you all,

This week in La Guarida

This week we continue with our monthly schedule – we are dedicating the whole week to Perú. Don’t forget that we serve breakfast from 9 AM to 1 PM, Monday through Friday. Come join us.

Tuesday 6:30 PM – Wiñaypacha.
Like the elderly couple in Ozu’s wonderful Tokyo Story (1953), the main characters of Wiñaypacha carry upon their bent backs the sadness of being forgotten by their son. Nonetheless, they do not invest in anger nor build up blame. They spend their days weaving the blanket that keeps them warm on cold nights, chewing on coca leaves, and dreaming of a wind that will bring their firstborn back home. Simply an outstanding film.

Thursday 7:15 PM. Admission $7. Music from Perú.
Kike Pacherres is easily the most recognized Peruvian artist in our city. We had Kike many times and every time it has been a complete delight. This time Kike visits us and offers a concert dedicated to his home country. Dedicated to the rhythms and culture that made him the extremely talented artist that he is right now. An emotional and intimate concert, that you don’t want to miss.

Friday Happy Hour beginning at 3 PM. No reservations necessary. Ceviche.
Ceviche is elegant, fresh, bold and incredibly delicious. There is no better way to highlight CuencaSalmon’s incredible products than by showing them off in Peruvian’s most traditional dish: ceviche. Come enjoy the best Pisco Sours accompanied by the best ceviche in town.

On Wednesday at 6:30 PM, we continue our film projections as well. We’ll be showing ‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.’ This film is an American classic and this year it turns 50. Come delight yourself with the incredible Gene Wilder in Roald Dahl’s best adaptation.

For our evening events don’t forget you need reservations with dinner requests. Call us at 099 806 8071.

June 7th, from 9 AM to 1 PM, Free, Mariscal Lamar y Luis Pauta, Cuenca.

Travel agency

I had good prices traveling on American Airlines, only 14 hours on 3 connections total from California SFO to Guayaquil. My daughter wants to make that trip but the prices have gone up from $900 to $1300 because it is summer up north. She contacted an agent who found her a $624 price on Avianca Airlines, a Columbian airline. That flight from SFO now is three days, goes on three connections, no food supplied and I guess no sleep, and worries about baggage transfers. Any suggestions of travel agents in Cuenca or anywhere who can do better with a reasonably priced flight without so many foreign changes? I know United stops in Quito but then it entails a flight to Cuenca. I used United once, so I don’t recommend it.

This is an example of a reachable homeopath in California, USA with books and suggestions for learning more about homeopathy for different problems. If I need something I email to Berkeley. Dana Ullman will contact you with your phone number for a phone consultation. I think he uses WhatsApp. I think he knows we use couriers so there is a two-week delivery time. His advice can be compared with a homeopath here. It’s always good to weigh choices in this subject. The Internet is a good place to search for a homeopathic remedy. There is also http://www.abchomeopathy.com where you can treat yourself to many pages of questions and then get a lot of suggested remedies for you to figure out yourself. tt is a good idea to go to that website abchomeopathy.com/ Then you can have a idea of the 200 questions asked by registered homeopaths. I use remedies available in some pharmacies for general questions, not deep problems. Please use WhatsApp for me, however I do not give any advice.

We care about your hair at C&C unisex hair design / barber shop

At C&C we care about the well-being of our customers and stylists. Our GreatCare Promise is our commitment to helping keep everyone as safe and comfortable as possible in the salon. Come on in for a great haircut – we’re ready for you. Our Equipment and tools are cleaned and sanitized regularly and stylists wash their hands frequently.

Many women spend a great deal of time and effort grooming their hair in order to appear more attractive.

Clemencia believes and according what she has been studying about hair, that washing your hair every day is not recommended. Shampoos remove the essential oils and moisture that your hair needs to stay hydrated.
If you are somebody who travels a lot or exercises regularly, your scalp may feel sweatier and may need a wash every one or two days.
Use a sulfate-free shampoo that helps you get rid of excess grease and dirt. There are certain products that are specifically tailored to help keep oil and grease on your scalp at bay. Ask us about it.
Washing your hair once in 2-3 days is recommended, unless your scalp is extra greasy due to other reasons.

Talking about a Gentleman’s hair, unless your goal is to grow longer hair, it’s wise to keep your hair trimmed because it’s the best way to get rid of damaged hair such as split ends. You should trim your hair every six to eight weeks, even if it’s just a light trim. You’ll be amazed how healthy your hair looks after a modest cut. Whatever you do, however, don’t believe the old adage that your hair will come in stronger and fuller if you cut it.

Keeping that beard looking clean must now be your raison d’être, the first thing you can do. Treat your beard with the same degree of devotion you’d show the hair on your head and you’ll be more than fine.

We all know how excessive exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays can damage skin, but it can damage your hair, as well. The good news is that there’s a variety of hair products designed to protect your hair from the sun, including shampoos and conditioners. It’s extremely important to know your scalp type before you buy hair products such as shampoo and conditioner. So we have some products that you are able to get.

So please make an appointment to visit us that way we k ow that you are coming and we wanna make sure to do our services as you deserve.

Rental visa, updated information

Hi all
As many of you know, with the latest changes in the migration law, last February, the government created a rental visa; that means, that you have to have a steady income, and plus the extra regular documents, you can apply for that visa.

But, here comes the trick: yesterday I was in Azogues, doing a cédula process and I took the opportunity to ask about this rental visa and the conditions and…

…You have to have proof of that income, besides the account statements, for example, let’s suppose that you have an online job, you have to show the contract, how much you receive, for how long the contract is and that document has to be notarized and apostilled in your country. And, even with those documents, there is not a guarantee that the visa will be approved.

Minimum income for tourist visa: $400 per month

Cedula: my friends received the new cedula with chip, yesterday afternoon in the Cuenca Registro Civil office. Everything was fine, but we have to wait for a long time due to problems related with the cedula’s computer system.

ECO Motion

This business sells electric motor scooters (motos). I visited Eco Motion on June 5th to look at the 3 wheel motos. Six had arrived the previous week and 2 remained on the lot. I began speaking to a male sales rep in Spanish and I was soon approached by the owner, Roxanna Moscoso, who was speaking English. We talked about the vehicles and I was impressed enough that I bought one on the spot.

The motos are silent and have 3 power ranges as well as forward and reverse. They have two mirrors, high and low beam headlight, turn signals and locking brakes that can be engaged if you’re going to park the moto and walk away from it. There is also an alarm which can be activated with a device on the key ring. They are very comfortable and they do not require a driver’s license to operate. They must be driven on the streets and can hold two riders if their maximum combined weight does not exceed 160 kg. The batteries can be re-charged on a household wall outlet.

Recommendation for La Guarida, restaurant

Andrés Zambrano has done a fantastic job of making La Guarida one of the best places in Cuenca to eat as well as having his restaurant being a museum for the famous ceramicist, Eduardo Segovia.

Located on the very western edge of Cuenca’s historic district, and next to a Tranvía stop, La Guarida is a great place to enjoy a meal with good friends. The whole building has been renovated and upgraded for an excellent dining experience. The beauty of this historic building has been lovingly restored to its original grandeur. Throughout the building are numerous works of Segovia. My photos don’t do justice to this talented artist’s works.

Omar was the waiter for my wife and two good friends. The gentleman speaks excellent English. His service is excellent as he was on top of all of our needs.
Andrés has taken over the cooking at La Guarida, and the man has great talents. He only uses fresh ingredients, and it all comes out as very tasty meals. His presentation of his entrées is artwork. Maybe he learned that from Maestro Segovia…

The breakfasts at La Guarida have to be the best in town, and they are very affordable for what you get. My wife had Lomo Fino with potatoes and fresh grape tomatoes. Every bit was cooked to perfection. I had a smoked salmon omelette with goat cheese. Wow! I will certainly be getting that the next time we have breakfast here.

This is more than a restaurant as La Guarida has art exhibits, live music, and many first-run movies. In the past, indigenous women sold their organic vegetables at the restaurant as Andrés is a great supporter of the community. There is something for everyone at La Guarida.

La Guarida is one of the most attractive and charming places in all of Cuenca to have a great meal. Seriously… When you are in Cuenca, do not miss this restaurant. Because of all of the great things here, there is no doubt that La Guarida is at the top of our list for return visits.

Recommendation for Alberto Mera of Crimestop Security, home and business security

I highly recommend Alberto Mera of Crimestop Security. Alberto and his team were very responsive to our situation. We needed to “catch someone in the act” which meant that Alberto needed to come assess the situation and then install the security cameras in the late afternoon so the perpetrator did not know that security measures had been taken. When the perpetrator was caught “red handed” we contacted Alberto once again and he immediately came to help us retrieve the data so that it could be submitted to the authorities.

Alberto’s skills include speaking both English and Spanish, knowledge of all sorts of security options, as well as an understanding of the criminal mind, which helps in the process of apprehending criminals.
