Do you use Google Fi to maintain a US phone number?

I recently received an email from Google Fi telling me my international data roaming was suspended. I’m actually not sure what that means since I can still receive calls and texts (for now).

I use Nord VPN, but that apparently didn’t work. Google figured it out and now I’m on some sort of list.

What phone services do people use here in Ecuador to maintain a US number? If using Google Fi, have you had your international data roaming suspended? What exactly does that mean and is there any way around it?

Cotopaxi Volcano from Ambato…

Hello. I’ll be in Ambato with a friend for a few days later this April. We’d like to do a day trip to Cotopaxi Volcano. Does anyone know the best way to do this? Any good tours that start in Ambato? I haven’t had much luck online as they seem to all start in Quito. Thank you!


Marty – urgent temporary foster needed

A compassionate expat couple rescued an apparently abandoned young male cat from Linear Park. He had been hiding in the drain pipe for a couple of days. His name is Marty and he is a charming kitty about a year old. He is currently at Dr. Gallardo’s getting neutered, wormed and flea meds.

We urgently need to find a temporary foster home while the rescuers return to the states for 4 weeks. The rescuers leave on Sunday and intend to foster Marty upon their return to Cuenca.

Compensation and food provision is negotiable.

Please contact me if you’re able to help a cat in need.

U of Cuenca needs volunteers urgently

The Faculty of Hospitality Sciences (with campus location on Tarqui and Pio Bravo) urgently needs several native English-speaking volunteers. This involves facilitation (not teaching) of one hour conversation groups of 5-7 students, the majority majoring in Tourism and a small group majoring in Gastronomy. The commitment is for four sessions once per 4 weeks, roughly from mid-April to early July. If you want to work with more than one group, this would be very welcome. The program is managed by Profesora Ximena Orellana, who speaks fluent English.

You should be conscious of the need not to speak not too fast, pronounce clearly and use accessible language. One requisite is vital: the absence of a pronounced (southern accent). Dealing with accents is just very hard and challenging for Ecuadorians…

Please call or email urgently? Many thanks.

How to skyrocket your Spanish In 12 weeks, like Cathy did

“That’s just the way it is”, she was told.

“Immersion is the best way to learn the language”, she was told.

And she gave it a shot (immersion)…

But after living in Ecuador for a few years and still feeling lost and excluded because she couldn’t follow or participate in the conversations around her, Cathy Cunningham realized it was time to try something different.


Sofa beds of different sizes

I manufacture different types of sofa beds.

Please write to the mail to send information and photos.

– Advantages of using a sofa bed

1. Save space
2. It is as comfortable as a real bed
3. It is ideal for your guests
4. Fits perfectly in your living room
5. Unfolds easily
6. Offers more storage
7. Its structure is durable
8. Its price is accessible

Recommendation for Leonardo Loja, landscaping service

​We are joining the chorus of people who have been singing the praises of Leonardo Loja landscaping. We wanted fresh plants for some bare places in our yard, plus we were thinking about having a patio installed where we could use our outdoor table and chairs. We called Leonardo and he came and gave us an estimate for all the new plants, plus adding soil and fertilizer​.

He also brought a gentleman who gave us a quote for the patio we wanted. We agreed to the quotes and they got started right away. The patio was finished in just 3 days, all done by hand and it’s absolutely perfect. And now we have beautiful flowers and bushes where we had bare spots and can sit at our outdoor table and enjoy them all. We couldn’t be happier with everything they did and recommend Leonardo and company without reservation. (unfortunately the photo is too large to upload)

Recommendation for Aubree Jeanne, Abundant Ayurveda – health coaching

Aubree is a professional who knows her material. Her depth of knowledge regarding nutritional health, years of experience coaching people through all types of health situations, combined with her intuitive wisdom, make her a force to be reckoned with in any health matter.

She is a great encourager through all the sessions, whether online or in my kitchen for a cooking class. On top of all of that it is a joy to team up with her.

Feel free to send an email to me regarding my experience of Aubree’s program.

His experience stems from working for Zerox and Apple. He speaks perfect English and was willing to patiently repeat until I understood.

“Alquimia Mística” Exhibition by Catalina Carrasco

Catalina Carrasco is a local artist from Cuenca, Ecuador whose work tells powerful stories and draws the viewer in. “Alquimia Mística” transforms paint into poetry and canvas into alchemy. We are excited to have her art on display at idiomART and hope you can make it to her opening this Friday, April 8 at 6pm. You will have a chance to meet her and talk directly with her about her art and her process. This is an exciting opportunity as she is going to Europe immediately after this show to show her art there!

Catalina has developed artistically in different geographical parameters and cultural spaces and has been in intimate contact with painting, music, literature, photography and performing arts. Her love for art, together with a playful approach to the free act of creating that she calls “guiding star”, make her work an experimental compendium. She considers her relationship with creativity to be an act of persistent surprise and a yearning for observation and listening. She has stated that most of her work is like an arrow that emerges from an invisible bow. Each image, each assembly, and each installation are the result of courage without a defined destination. For her, art is the continuity of impermanence, an intimate effort to enter into a trance and cross the borders through an untouchable echo.

Her exhibition will be at idiomART from April 8 – 23 and you can visit us during our regular gallery hours or email us to schedule a private showing.

Gallery Hours:
Tues, Wed, Thurs: 11 AM – 3 PM
Fri, Sat: 11 AM – 5 PM
