I came across these natural and simple recipes to kill ants and other insects using Borax. I specifically want to kill teeny tiny little black sugar ants.
How to kill ants with Borax – A Deadly Ant Killer Recipe
Borax is not a quick fix that gets rid of ants immediately, but because of its slower workings, it is a more effective and long-term home remedy. Borax works by gradually killing the ants after they ingest it, and because most ants bring back the fruits of their labor to their colony to feed their larvae and their queen, this method of using borax will kill the ants and destroy the colony from the inside out.
Clothing Needed: You Can Help
The children in our program are thrilled with the clothing donations that they get through CSK. They don’t often get new clothing.
But fitting in at school (yes, all of the children in our program are required to attend school) can be tough with ill-fitting clothing. A few of them have requested clothing, shoes, and sneakers for Christmas.
You can make school and their futures better when you make their wishes come true!
Visit our Angel Tree at: https://www.cuencasoupkitchen.org/event
You can choose to purchase and deliver one of the listed gifts
You can choose to make a financial donation and we will purchase the gift for you – this is the best option to grant wishes from outside of Ecuador or if shopping is difficult for you.
Please drop off your gifts by November 15th so our elves will have plenty of time to sort, wrap, and distribute the gifts.

Hello gringo community,
I have been hearing from some people that there are several different ideas going around that I am leaving Cuenca, or going back to the US. Someone had me going to live with my daughter in Texas–I do not have a daughter.
I am not leaving, as I have purchased a small plot of land to build a house in the country here.
I have been having a sale, so that may have confused some people; I was lightening my load a bit as I move from my house in town, which I still have under lease. I am planning to stay in Ecuador indefinitely.
Thank you all for supporting me and my sale, you will see me around for some time! Ecuador is my home.
I just wanted you all to know, and to set the record straight.
Thank you again,
Mary Thomajan: firstname.lastname@example.org .

Orchids Painting Tour
More than hundreds of orchid species are waiting for us in our next painting tour!
On Saturday, November 20, 2021, we will celebrate our fourth painting tour to the Ecuagenara orchid farm. We will learn about the interesting process of “deflasking” the result of which, after a couple years and replete or two, is an orchid flask, a bottle with dozens of baby orchids growing inside. Orchids are fascinating and very inspiring for everyone.
You don’t need any painting experience! Just your desire to create and art work.
Departing from Plaza del Otorongo, round trip transportation to
Ecuagenera orchid farm in Gualaceo, 45 minutes from Cuenca City Center.

Hi fellow expats, my name is Alejandro Moreno, I’m a 25-year-old guy from Venezuela looking to work as a Spanish (Or English) conversational partner/teacher both online or offline, 1 to 1 or as a group.
The way I teach is mostly casual, focusing on whatever the client needs to fix. The key, in my experience, is to make yourself understood and also understanding what others are saying and that holds true for any language. I firmly believe that holding a continuous conversation is a great way to get better fast, since that’s the way I learned.
I have been administering facial treatments and procedures to Expats in Cuenca for 5 years. I created a line of chemical-free products for myself and my clients. At the encouragement of several clients, I am now offering my products to the public.
Dead skin is a culprit for wrinkled, lifeless, dull skin. Dead skin can make up as many as 18 to 23 layers of your skin. Gritty exfoliating products exfoliate unevenly and if you scrub too hard you could actually damage the skin. That’s why I have included 3 products that gently remove dead skin plus an inexpensive toner that I will recommend to you. Once the dead skin is gone, the skin can absorb the other ingredients to moisturize and build collagen and you’re left with glowing, more youthful skin. You will see a difference if you are consistent in following the protocol.

An interesting thing happened to me the other day. I was supposed to meet friends at Ta’Lico, a Chinese restaurant across from Hotel Oro Verde for lunch, but for some reason the others ended up at a neighboring Chinese restaurant and I ended up sharing lunch with Ta’Lico’s owner all by myself.
Another interesting thing is that many years ago I lived and worked in China for a year and I developed a great love of Chinese cuisine.
