Want a vax certificate?

The original web site (https://sgrdacaa-admision.msp.gob.ec) never worked. I tried for months and got only a message saying to come back in 72 hours. Now that web page is gone entirely.

But this does work: https://certificados-vacunas.msp.gob.ec

(1) This new URL takes you to a page titled “Solicitud Certificado de Vacunación Msp”. Enter your cedula number and birthdate. You can type these into an editor of your choice first, so you’re ready.

(2) If your cedula number looks like “999999999-9”, then enter “9999999999” (no hyphen, and of course no quotes).

To a Pedir a Boca

Thank you Felipe for all the free language lessons, the special chicken soup which came with the just right veggies on top; and all the wonderful meals and deserts that came out of your one man kitchen. You had the longest carrot strips I have ever seen. Your paintings, your flags, photos (the crying cat), the knickknacks that decorated your surroundings, making your restaurant a very special place to enjoy.

For every one who patronized your spot on Benigno Malo and Juan Jaramillo, let’s give three cheers in a phone call or mention on the website that “we will certainly miss you as a favorite spot to go to in the Historic District of Cuenca. I wish you well on your next journey. May it be as creative as this one.

Real stories from the Hogar – When there is gold in those hills

They had a beautiful property in the Colombian hills. Enough income to provide for them and their four children. But then the guerillas moved in. There was gold in those hills, and everyone was forced to leave. Families like this one tried to fight back but had no support from the local authorities. Under threat of death and intimidation, they escaped to Ecuador. Not wanting to put their children through the stress of escape, they left them with family members until they could get established in Ecuador. With the economic situation in Ecuador difficult, they found themselves being homeless and living on the streets, sleeping on carboard boxes.

Their case was brought to us by the Municipality, and we were asked to assist. This is the distinctive approach of the Hogar. We do not give away things, we work with various agencies to find solutions to those facing emergency situations and provide exactly what they need. Our Social Worker will partner with them until their situation is resolved. In this case, we have found them work and we will provide them with accommodation and food until they have a stable situation, which we expect will be a few weeks.

If you wish the opportunity to assist families like this you can participate by contributing to our emergency appeal. https://mailchi.mp/0a99b5fd652f/urgent-appeal or at:https://www.givingway.com/donate/fundacion-hogar-de-esperanza. All this week we will be having a huge Garage Sale and Open House. You can visit us at Juan Montalvo 8-18 and Mariscal Sucre, email or call us. If you would like to participate by contributing items for our sale, please contact us. Thank you for your support and helping families in emergency situations.

This week In La Guarida.

Come join us on the second week of September. La Guarida mixes cultural activities with amazing food and drinks. We thank all of our customers for keeping us as the Best Rated Restaurant in Cuenca in TripAdvisor. Don’t forget to come to our breakfast service: Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 12:30 PM. We serve the best omelets in town. You may also check out Eduardo Segovia’s exhibit. We have more than 60 works by this revered local artist.

Our film choices for this week are:

Tuesday, September 7th at 6:45 PM: The Passion of Joan of Arc
It is the year 1431. Young, French Joan of Arc is put on trial for alleged treason. Once glorified as her nation’s savior, she has become a mere pawn in a game of political intrigue. Her sacrifice is inevitable. Simply considered as one of the best film ever created. By master filmmaker Carl Theodor Dreyer and an exquisite performance by Maria Falconetti as Joan, this film is simply unmissable.

Immersion plus motivation, the golden rule

Nobody can teach you anything if you don’t feel motivated to learn it, unfortunately learning doesn’t work like osmosis and learning a language is not the exception (“nobody” means Bilingo, Babbel, Language Transfer, or whatever platform you are thinking about).
Motivation + immersion, the golden rule.
Are you motivated?
Are you living in a Spanish (Castellano) speaking country? Go for it!
Both of them? Let’s get started! But whoa, whoa, whoa It won’t happen in the blink of an eye, (no pain no gain) no training no gain-ing.

Stay tuned for my next post on Monday: “How to easily acquire at least five words every single day in Spanish” (might be ten words, it all depends on you).

From October I will be available every Wednesday for a Spanish language A/Q session at my Whereby platform room.

See you next Monday!

Does your dog pull you down the street?

He almost certainly doesn’t mean to pull you. He’s probably not thinking of you at all! Sometimes, a gentle pressure on his chest reminds him to hold back. Have you tried the Easy-Walk Harness? Yes? And did you remember to attach the leash to his chest, not the top of his back? It might be all you need.

I have some Easy-Walk harnesses in M, M/L and L sizes. These can be hard to find in Ecuador.

Please call or write me for more information.

Cat scratchers and towers

Cats are curious, fearless animals and they love to play. Life locked up at home can be boring for them without games or surprises. Remember that they need to meet their needs and scratching is one of their basic instincts, both to file their nails, as a form of play, for anxiety or insecurity or to defend their territory. Many times we get angry because our cat has scratched the sofa or the curtains, but we should ask ourselves, are we giving it any alternative?

Scratchers for cats are a good gift for them, it helps them to stay active and keep their nails in good condition. Plus, it’s yours, yours alone. Something that cats love.

– 5 reasons why your cat should use a scratching post:

1. To keep their nails healthy and strong.
2. To stay active and avoid health problems.
3. To play and release stress
4. To create shelter
5. For their curious instinct.

Constructed entirely of good wood, strong and stable solids, with strong sisal and high-quality carpet cloth.

I have different designs and models. Prices vary from each one.

I also manufacture scratchers based on your budget.
You will like it a lot.

Lassie needs a home urgently

Hello there,

My name is Clemencia Vizhnay and I need some help with someone who wants to adopt a dog. Her name is Lassie. She needs a home with a family who loves dogs. I found her in Cañar. She was walking on the main road where there was a lot of traffic; I mean she was in a dangerous place so I rescued her. She is a mixed breed between German Shepherd and any other dog, but I’m not able to keep her because I already have another dog and she was rescued also. Plus, I have two cats and I work full time. I’m a widow and I can’t keep more pets. I cannot afford it. Please, I urgently need a house for Lassie in a lovely family.

For more information about it please contact through WhatsApp iMessage, text message #098 814 8902 .
Please call after 9 AM.

Recommendation for Botaniker Alchemists, Restaurant

From the moment you enter this charming establishment you are greeted with sensory pleasures for your eyes as well as your pallet. Xavier, the owner bills himself as a “food engineer”. He definitely lives up to his title. The restaurant is beautifully decorated with plants and stylish furniture.

The staff is all bilingual and the restaurant consists of traditional Ecuadorian Food but some fantastic North American dishes. On our first visit I had the Quesadillas and my wife had the Tacos with a tasty guacamole. Our second visit we each had a hamburger cooked to our exact specifications. They use Heinz Ketchup and have a delicious Peanut sauce for dipping your Fries. Save room for the desserts because they are scrumptious.

I saved the best part for last. The “Alchemist” in the title is there because they produce their own private label of Gin and Vodka. I had the Honey Bee Gin and Sharon had the Ginger Lemonade.

We have Crucita to Canoa (with stops in San Jacinto, Sam Clemente, Bahia de Caraquez, Canoa) We ship to Cuenca once a month both personal orders and a good sampling of our items carried by Luvimar Gourmet at all times. If you don’t see your location, help us to get a new route going with some other folks and if we can’t drive it, we will ship it.

Start by looking below, and seeing what we offer. Then write to me at edenblue@sbcglobal.net and we will coordinate times and places of deliveries. Orders are paid when picked up, so please be sure we coordinate with you. If I have not replied, pester me, although that usually is not necessary…If you order and do not reply to my note, I will pester you…hahahaha.
