It’s great Ecuador removed the $42 tariff on import Category B, items less than $400 and weighing less than 4kg, AKA 4×4. But try creating an order of multiple items that complies from the courier’s perspective, which is an order must arrive to them in a single package. When was the last time your Amazon order of multiple items was shipped in a single package? Here’s my experience:
Clickbox: https://www.instagram.com/clickbox_ec/ Advertises their rate is $40 for 4×4. But the fine print they don’t talk about is a package consolidation fee of $30, bringing the rate up to their per pound fee. They do order management via email and your total is unknown until you pick it up or have it delivered. Clickbox used to provide excellent service when they started. With my last order last week, they didn’t even bother to contact me that it was in. I just showed up in their office because WhatsApp texts and emails, politely composed in Spanish, went unanswered.
Lorlotte Jarvis, known by many as Lotte, passed away on the morning of November 9, following a battle with cancer. For the last few weeks, she had been receiving medical care in Toronto where her daughter Ruth, her grandchildren, and her lifelong friend Ingrid, live.
She was 87 years old and was going about her business until as recently as a few months ago.
Lorlotte was an eye witness to Hitler’s invasion of Austria, where she lived on her grandparents’ farm. She was the daughter of a church pastor who refused to swear allegiance to Hitler. Her colorful life history is available on Amazon, titled “Angels to the Rescue.”
She lived life her way, and with energy and enthusiasm.
Rest in peace, Lotte. We will remember you.

If you like Italian cuisine and you like beef, this is the dinner for you. Tender beef shanks are popular in many European cuisines, but it’s in Osso Buco, the northern Italian classic, that they can be at their most heavenly. And Joes’ Secret Garden brings them to Cuenca … braised in a sophisticated and subtle tomato and vegetable sauce, then finished with a bright gremolata (fresh parsley, lemon zest, and garlic), But few dishes are more seductive. Like most braises, they require slow, gentle cooking.

Italian style tender beef – Osso Buco! Dinner, slow cooked with fresh vegetables and gravy for hours … then served on creamy parmesan polenta … or opt for our popular Herb Garlic and Rosemary Roasted Chicken or a classic Egg Plant Parmesan Lasagna, finishing dinner with a refreshing fresh Mango Mousse, … that’s what’s cooking at Joes’ this week.
What our customers have to say and posted on Trip Advisor:
“Joe’s Secret Garden is a private home with a beautiful garden in the back yard. They serve dinner for up to 100 people and they’re known for their Southern fried chicken which they serve monthly. Except for special holidays, they usually only serve dinners on Saturday evenings and it’s a warm and gracious place for new people to meet fellow expats, although their clientele isn’t exclusively geared to expats.
Ken and KP, the current owners, prepared Osso Buco for the main course tonight along with a sweet and sour beet, avocado and red onion salad, fresh bread still warm from the oven, mashed potatoes with gravy and a key lime pie for dessert. The Osso Buco was perfectly prepared and everyone at our table commented on the overall quality of the meal. The meat was fall off the bone tender and the gravy was very well seasoned. It was a delicious meal.
I go to Joe’s Secret Garden regularly. It’s not often that I miss a week. The food is consistently good and the atmosphere is warm and congenial. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Cuenca or anyone living here that hasn’t tried Joe’s before”
