ISO curry leaves

RT-PCR test for travel (test at home)

I need a RT PCR test report that is valid for international travel.

Is there someplace offering these tests at home? Not the rapid test or antigen test but the specific PCR test that’s required for entry to most countries.

Also, is the saliva-based RT PCR test report accepted as valid for travel? Do the test reports mention the method of taking the sample—want to be sure so as not to have any problems at the airport. And is there any clinic offering this (saliva based) test at home?

Thank you for leaving your responses in the comment section.

Vicky for adoption

Vicky is a 2-year old, mixed breed, spayed female. She is cheerful, playful and active and likes other doggies and children. She is a manageable 13 kg. and is medium size. She is a docile girl and would love to have a family of her own.

She was abandoned at the FAAN shelter about two months ago. The abandoners threatened to kill her if she wasn’t accepted by FAAN because she was “naughty and chased farm animals”.

Next door to the shelter there are plenty of farm animals such as chickens, sheep and cows and it has been our observation that Vicky has had no interest in chasing or harassing them.

If you’re interested in meeting sweet Vicky, please contact me.

Honoring all Veterans – Thursday, November 11, 2021 at 10:45 AM

Attention all military Veterans, family members and the general public. The annual Veteran’s Day ceremony will be held at San Sebastian Plaza on Thursday, November 11th at 10:45 AM. It’s similar to a meet and greet except we will say a prayer or two for World Peace and also in remembrance of the many Veterans who gave their lives for their countries.

In the past we have had individuals who served not only in the United States of America or Canadian Military but representatives from Great Britain, Australia, Germany, the Netherlands and South Africa. Please spread the word. It is a short ceremony where we can say “Thank You” to individuals who have served their countries and remember former military brothers and sisters who gave their lives while serving. I have also invited the Ecuadorian Military to send representatives and I hope that they will.

This event is open to all. If by chance you have a flag of the country you served, please bring it. We were not able to put this event on during the Covid pandemic and it takes place outside on the plaza. Please mark your calendar. Thursday, November 11th at 10:45 AM. Thank you in advance for spreading the word and your participation.

November 11th, form 10:45 to 11:30 AM, Free, San Sebastian Plaza, Cuenca.

Free Language Exchange by YEES

A fun and relaxing environment to use your Spanish and English. Come and join us at Selina’s terrace (Calle Larga 7-93) every Saturday for a chance to practice with native English and Spanish speakers and meet new friends. This Exchange is basically a casual conversation where we switch languages every 30 minutes. This event is free; however, due to the pandemic, don’t forget to follow these directions:

– If the receptionist asks what do you want, tell him/her that you’re a member of #YEES and there’s a language exchange at the terrace that you’re attending.
– Even though Selina’s terrace is an open space and they have all the biosecurity measures, the pandemic isn’t over yet so don’t forget to keep social distance.
– The conversation will be spontaneous as usual. The only rule is switching languages every 30 minutes. You decide which language goes first.

October 2nd, from 2 to 4 PM, Free event, Calle Larga 7-93, Cuenca.

Recommendation for Kolo restaurant and bakery

It’s Frank’s own place. And it keeps getting better and better. Located in the Hotel La Vieja Mansion, in a spacious and lovely dining room, Frank’s specializes in delicious American style food (Bravo to the chef!) and good ole Southern hospitality.

All staff speak English and are friendly and helpful. The menus are in English and Spanish, easy to read. Frank adjusts his menus frequently to include new and popular items, one of which is the Texas- style chicken fried steak. It comes with mashed potatoes and veggies, but you can have double mashed potatoes if you ask. Take it from a Texan, the chicken fried steak is a 10.


Recommendation for International Christian Community, church

ICC (International Christian Community) is a non-denominational Christian church. It is a welcoming, diverse and inclusive congregation that believes in the transformative love of Christ. Through worship, music as well as acts of kindness and service to others, ICC attempts to live out the true meaning of loving God and our neighbors. Please join us this Sunday for a celebration of Holy Communion at 11 AM on Nicanor Aguilar and Solano Avenue (directly behind Torre IV of Monte Sinai).

Recommendation for Dr. Pedro Jose Quizhpe Marin, infectionist-pulmoologist

From the bottom of my heart I would like to thank the pulmonologist, dr. Pedro Jose Quizhpe Marin, where my husband continued treatment for pneumonia after the hospital. I can say that he started the treatment from scratch, because after the hospital, my husband’s condition was deplorable and within one month of treatment, Dr. Quizhpe completely cured my husband. When you come to life, no oxygen machine, no cough, you may feel all the colors of life. I highly recommend Dr. Quizhpe to everyone who needs.
