Anyone traveling to the US?

Greetings All,

I’m looking for someone traveling back to the US who would be willing to take some items to a friend of mine. She lives in Georgia but if the person would be willing to mail the items from any city in the US, I would appreciate it. The items have sentimental value to her and she has terminal cancer. I am willing to compensate monetarily for the trouble. Thank you in advance for your help.

Recommendation for Gisella Viteri, cosmetologist

Recommendation for Edgar Torres, home improvement and maintenance guru

Navigating the construction and repair culture of Cuenca, is a minefield of frustration, even for the most acculturated among us. Heck, even Cuencans will shake their heads in commiseration, as they hear the frustrating tales of game attempts to acquire services or products around the city.

Edgar’s indomitable spirit and sense of humor, along with his nearly perfect English, will provide you with your happy results. Skilled in plumbing, welding, electrical, carpentry and concrete, there are scant few things he cannot do. The services he can’t provide, are done by qualified tradesmen. Likewise, his access into the supply community are extensive.

I’ve worked in Canadian construction most of my life, and the most important trait of any professional, is the inability to think or say “it can’t be done”. Edgar exemplifies that spirit.

I trust her as much as I do Mady to handle things.

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 ask 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.

April 2nd, from 3 PM to 5 PM, Free event, Calle Larga 7-93, Cuenca.
