Need address of New Thought, spiritual group meeting this coming Sunday

On Wednesday, January 12th, Ruth Bennett posted an upcoming spiritual study group meeting this coming Sunday. It is to be held in the area of Fernando de Aragon y Primero de Mayo. She asked to text her to get the specific address. I was unable to text via WhatsApp, but did text her sms. I have not heard back as to the location of the meeting and would very much like to attend. I hope to hear back from Ruth.

Thank you in advance.

Anyone have knowledge about Ecuadorian Condo Associations?

I recently watched an Ecuador home buying video, and it mentioned to be careful buying in condos as there is a weak HOA structure in Ecuador to enforce rules, or collect HOA fees from delinquent homeowners…

Anyone have any experience or advice to share? I see several realtors posting on here.

Thank you,

Jen

Will you help us in our endeavor? Our goal is to collect 30,000 bottle caps. So far we have collected 1,365 caps. The caps will be recycled and the proceeds donated to organizations that help those with childhood cancer. A little effort on your part can have a big impact on children with cancer.

Found dog

This dog was injured in some way and laying in the grass outside the front gate to my apartment. He was very weak and did not want to stand, but was friendly enough to let me touch him. He was causing all the neighbor’s dogs on the block to bark ceaselessly.

I called Dr. Gallardo, who took him to his clinic. Later in the afternoon, after medication and food, the dog was on his feet and in much better condition. He doesn’t appear to be a stray or street dog. He’s well fed, clean, and otherwise appears in good health. He’s very friendly, not timid or aggressive.

This was in the Heroes de Verdeloma and Presidente Borrero neighborhood, a block uphill from Rafael Maria Arizaga and Borrero.

Please contact me if you own or recognize this dog.

Dee lightful! Jay Dee’s food is super. Unassuming little place close to Calle Larga up Mariana Cueva about a block or two. Great soup—sandwiches. I had the grilled cheese and tomato soup today; really really good. Asked for potato salad. Jay Dee delivered. Terrific! And very reasonable prices.

Recommendation for Le Moulin Restaurante, restaurant

Last night a group of 8 people including myself had a unique and wonderful dining experience at a relatively new restaurant called Le Moulin located at 12 de Abril 285, here in Cuenca. The setting itself is extremely charming with thick stucco walls, French doors overlooking the Rio Tomebamba, wide plank wooden floors, a traditional high reed ceiling with exposed beams, and unique wall scones and chandeliers which provide a soft lighting throughout the entire space. Apparently the building was originally some type of mill and the owners have played off that theme in terms of accessories along with large photos of “old” Cuenca.

I wish to recommend Attorney Rafael Arizaga Coellar, an English-speaking Ecuadorian. He has assisted me with the writing of my will according to the current laws in Ecuador.

One day I needed a mixto to deliver furniture to my apartment. I had the truck and movers within an hour. He also has knowledge of the medical community in Cuenca and confirms appointments the same day as needed.

I feel confident in recommending this gentleman to provide assistance to those seeking answers to legal questions, medical referrals, Visas, Banking, and facilitating life in Ecuador.

Recommendation for Jenny Salinas, manicure/pedicure

I contacted Jenny for a pedicure for two reasons. Primarily because I had a back injury, so it is difficult for me to bend to do my own toe nail care and I have fallen bones, so develop problems causing pain when walking, when not attended to. Secondary, I have been going to a salon, but it required two taxi rides and was not convenient.

Jenny arrived at my home on time. What I impressed me immediately was when she spread her towel and the tools needed were spread out like a surgeon’s. I have had professional pedicures in more than five different countries; I really appreciate Jenny’s care and professionalism.

Recommendation for Le Moulin Restaurant, Restaurant

Thursday evening, a group of 8 of us who have been maintaining a bubble, went to Le Moulin restaurant to celebrate my and another friend’s birthday. None of us had been here before.

The restaurant sits on 12 de Abril and can easily be overlooked as it is set back off the road. It is across the street from Juan Marcet.

The interior is rustically charming exuding a warmth and welcome atmosphere. Our waiter was attentive and generous with his time. Each person ordered something different from the menu, but each of us was impressed with the food in presentation and taste.

The two of us celebrating birthdays were treated to a delicious dessert large enough to offer the others a bite, though we would have happily devoured it ourselves.

We cannot wait to return to eat outside where the seating is right on the river. We will return for indoor dining as well.

Recommendation for Dr. Daniela Ordonez, dentistry

Dr. Daniela Ordonez was recommended to me by two long-time expats. I went for an initial visit, and after an exam it was determined I needed three crowns and a filling. One of the crowns was a complex restoration that my former US dentist did not want to bother with and wanted to extract it, leaving an inadequate chewing area in my mouth. Dr. Ordonez did a wonderful job restoring it, and the other two crowns, plus the filling.
I recommend her highly! She doesn’t do unnecessary procedures to pad the bill, and speaks fluent English.
