About: At age 42, Rafael Belvedere is having a crisis. He’s overwhelmed by his responsibilities and just isn’t having any fun. He has spent most of his life frantically trying to run the restaurant his father Nino founded. He has achieved success, but continues to live in the old man’s shadow. He rarely visits his aging mother, Nora. His ex-wife is bitter towards him because he doesn’t spend enough time with their daughter. And finally, Rafael is too self-involved to make a commitment to his girlfriend, Nati. Just when Rafael feels most alone, a series of unexpected events lead him to reevaluate his life. A minor heart attack forces him to slow down and a reunion with Juan Carlos, a childhood friend, helps Rafael to reconstruct his past and look at the present in new ways. Most importantly, when his father makes the decision to fulfill his mother’s dream of getting married in a church, it gives Rafael a task to focus on, bringing the family together to create a new memory they can share.

Getting to La Guarida is simple. Just jump on the tranvia and get off La Cuadra station. We continue to be the best rated restaurant according to TripAdvisor. Don’t miss out this incredible film with an equally amazing dinner.

September 21st, from 5:45 to 9:45 PM, Free, Mariscal Lamar and Luis Pauta, Cuenca.

Calling all horticulturalists

Howdy fellow gardeners —

Hoping any of you can share a location where I can find the following in volume:

1. Peat moss and/or coco coir
2. Perlite and/or vermiculite
3. Worm castings (pure)

I know that you can buy small portions of these at Coral/SuperMaxi, but I’m looking at building a raised bed garden, and would like to make my own soil amendments, so need these in volume. Any help is very much appreciated.

End of life document – will

Do you need to have a will or an end of life document made here in Ecuador?

I know legal paperwork can be confusing and stressful, and that’s why I know I can help you. I can prepare the documents you need and have the best notary for the legalization.

I’ll always make an English version of everything so you can understand and be sure of what you’re signing.


What is this?

It’s a clicker. A very useful tool in dog training. You press the orange button when your dog does something you like. And immediately afterwards (but not simultaneously) reward your dog. So simple, right?

So tell me: if someone rings a bell when you get the right answer and then gives you something you really like (I don’t know, what do you really like?), are you likely to repeat the behavior that made you so happy?

Are you late to declare your assets?

Are you late to declare your assets?
The Ecuadorian tax administration, SRI, updated its policy on taxable assets in Ecuador on December 31st, 2020. The law declares that any Ecuadorian resident including foreign individuals with assets valuing over $224,240 must declare their assets to the SRI. Those in marital or common-law partnerships must declare if their assets value over $448,480*

This obligation applies to even those who do not take part in economic activity.

What if I don’t declare?

Making a declaration before June, 2021 will avoid fines and penalties. Failure to comply with this obligation on time will result in a sanction which can range from $30 to $1,500.


Free review and advice of your insurance in Ecuador

If you already have an insurance policy but you feel that something is not going well, contact us now, we can advise you and review your insurance in Ecuador, you can change at any time to the broker or insurer if you feel that your insurance is not giving you the coverage you expected.

We can review your insurance for you, and verify that the costs, deductibles, coverages, and more are adequate for your needs, in many occasions you are offered medical insurance with high monthly payments with the offer that will cover all your requirements but on the way you discover that you must first meet extremely high deductibles that will cost you work to cover. The ideal insurance is the one that gives you adequate coverage for your needs. If you are a healthy person who does not visit the doctor frequently and you do not suffer from any considerable pre-existing condition you could opt for major expense insurance combined with minor insurance that gives you ambulatory medical antennas among other guarantees for a minimum monthly price.

You also can forget about paying for car insurance. We include it with every rental.


APshipping clarification

I have used this platform to advertise several times and it works great. Unfortunately, the other side of the coin is that anyone (including competitors) can hide behind a fake profile and start bashing any business any time.

Someone has been attacking my business and integrity going as far as saying Pam is not my name. This ignorant person doesn’t know Pam is short for Pamela.
No business is 100% accurate and no person is perfect either.
I do make mistakes just like everyone else. I do my best to resolve them, asap. And, I’m a very honest person that would not taint my name for any reason.

Let this be clear to that coward person that won’t say their name. I do not hide from anyone. My name and phone numbers are real. My driver doesn’t know who you are either.

My goats and cows are happy living on grass pasture and make lovely milk for fresh drinking or enjoying the Super Yogurt I make with their milk.

The Super Yogurt, in addition to the regular cultures, also includes a very special culture called L. reuteri.

If you search the MIT website you will see studies done on this super culture. Some of the benefits are increased collagen in the skin for a smoother look, hair improvement, preservation of bone density, and boosts oxytocin levels, among other benefits.

Come to The Hop Factory this Thursday and Friday from 1:30 to 7:30 PM, for some great craft beer. We do home deliveries on Thursday from 8 AM to noon.

We are on the east side of Cuenca, Calle del Himno y Bandera Nacional. We have darts and chess boards available to play, as well as outdoor seating.

Our available beers are: Bourbon Barrel (11.5%) $4, IPA (6%) $3, Stout (6%) $3, American Amber Ale (6%) $3. We make a truly “old school” beer that is unfiltered and naturally carbonated.

Low cal/low carb beers: $3
Our Rowdy Rabbit is an all-natural Light Blonde Ale that only has 84 calories and 5.8 carbohydrates but still has 4% abv. This slightly hazy beer is light in color/calories/carbohydrates but still has a Citrusy Tart flavor (15 IBU’s) that is created with not only our hops/grains but stands out because of our use of coriander.

Our Light Jamaica and Light Maracuya (Passionfruit) beers are even easier on your waistline. 72 calories, 4.9 carbohydrates, 3.5% abv. and they both go down like juice. These shandy-like beers ended up very popular with our taste testers (The Hop Family (c;).

We are also the only place you can get Black Honey and Café Dona Julita brand coffees. Black Honey is our coffee liqueur made in Vilcabamba. Makes a great White Russian (16% abv $15/750ml bottle).
New coffee prices. The coffee we have available in both beans and ground. “Premium” is a medium-dark roast $4. 50/400g,
“Gourmet” is a medium/Columbian roast $5.50/400g and our “Honey” is a medium dark roast originally created just for our coffee liqueur $6.50/400G. Honey we will need a week advance for the order so we can special order what you need.

Recommendation for Daniela Torres Abad, JEP representative specialist

I recently met with for the first time Daniela at JEP to talk about renewing my CD. She was ever so knowledgeable, thorough and detailed. She offered me options that I might not have considered had she not told me about them. In addition, her friendly manner quickly put me at ease. Her English is impeccable and she s a true professional. I am glad my friend recommended her to me.

Recommendation for Rebecca Tzigany – returns to Cuenca, Transformational Breathwork, Sept 23

I was very blessed to have attended Rebecca’s Transformational Breathwork last month. I have been lucky to have many breakthrough experiences in this lifetime, entheogens, OBE’s, NDE’s and Vipassana Meditation. In short, I’m not a beginner. That said, Rebecca’s workshop was one of the most profound experiences I have had. I had suffered a number of bad rib cage injuries and was a little hesitant doing deep breathing, but Rebecca’s gentle and confident manner made the work easy. By the middle of the class, I had increased my lung capacity an additional 25%. Huge! But the big surprise were profound insights from past lives (not something I expected from breathing). In short, if you can make the time this Thursday, I highly recommend this experience to everyone. You too might be surprised!

Recommendation for Red Tag Moving Company, local moving company

I have had a lot of various vendors do work for me over the years and I have never come across such a professional, accommodating and conscientious outfit as Red Tag Moving Company. This is the second move that they have done for me and I cannot praise their work ethic enough. This time I actually asked Debra Lynn, the owner, to move a friend for me on literally a two-day notice and on a Friday! She told me that she was managing at the Common Grounds Restaurant on Friday night but she would do her best to see if her crew were all available to do the move starting the next morning. Within the hour she called me back and said let’s do it! The next day she and the crew showed up promptly and worked from 8:30 AM until 4 PM getting everything loaded, transported and unloaded. Debra then went to work at her other job and followed through with her crew to ensure that the one load left to move was taken care of very early Saturday morning. What could have been a very stressful situation was pulled off without hitch.
Hands down, I will recommend Debra and her employees every time!

Minion is quite content with the reupholstery job that Jesus did on her cat scratch tower. In addition, we ordered a new short, scratching pole. Minnie likes that too.

While the answer seems obvious it is somewhat elusive because your brain has rewired itself. There is nothing like them in Cuenca.

Each order comes with 2 tacos (burrito size tacos) $6.95

Double D’s: There’s still time to order but not much

Four more new recipes are on this menu. The casserole combines the richness of a Chicken Cordon Bleu with a faux risotto base. The salad is bright and herby and pairs nicely with the hearty casserole. A brownie reminiscent of Mounds bars and a sweet and tangy tart are the sweets to tempt you.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Ri-faux-tto Bake: $25 (6-8 servings); $19 (4-5 servings)
Marinated Tomato & Mozzarella Salad: $8/lb (2-3 servings)
Coconut Cheesecake Brownies: $3 each
Blueberry Lemon Curd Tart Square: $3 each
