In desperate need of a wheelchair

Hello, My dear friend desperately needs a hip replacement. She can hardly walk. And to top it off, she fell and broke her arm last week and the hip surgery has to be postponed for 3 months due to her broken arm. Is there anyone out there who would be so kind as to lend my friend a wheelchair temporarily? She would be so grateful. I will be most happy to return it to you once she is no longer in need of the wheelchair. Thank you so much.

Enrollment now open Ana Luisa Spanish Classes, May 2nd

Join us for our third session of this year which begins on Monday, May 2nd – June 10th, 2022

What do you need to learn Spanish?
• Motivation (to keep going)
• Focus (to be effective)
• Time (for everything to sink in)

Language is best taught when it is being used to transmit messages. The activities in class have these elements: comprehension, interest and involvement, and meaningful repetition.

Our goal with the oral approach method is to involve our students and others who are learning Spanish in experiences that provide the opportunity to know more about the daily lives of people, share and talk with them, and learn about the culture through classes in group, lectures and students’ trips.

For those who have never taken a class with us…why not give it a try? It doesn’t hurt.

All levels: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. Each class includes 18 hours of instruction over a 6-week period and meets twice per week for 1.5 hours. In addition, each class includes a Cultural Lecture:

Cost: $100.

ACT Auditions for production of “Custer”

ACT is holding auditions for its upcoming production of “Custer” Monday and Tuesday April 25 and 26 from 10 – 12.

Auditions will be held at the Azuay Community Theater on Av. Ordonez Lasso, Cuenca, in the building just west of Hotel Oro Verde.

Custer, is a play in two acts, written by Robert E. Ingham. The cast calls for 5 men and three women. This will be an almost reader’s theater production. Much of the script will be with scripts in hand, though we will try to memorize some key scenes in which scripts would simply be too cumbersome. This will be an opportunity for actors with little experience to transition from total reader’s theater to a fully staged play. Most characters have at least one monologue, allowing for more complete characterization. This script presents an historically accurate depiction of what really happened at “Custer’s Last Stand.” Performances will be June 10, 11, 12 and 17, 18 and 19.

ACT is in the first building west of Hotel Oro Verde, Av. Ordonez Lasso, Cuenca, EC

Recommendation for Jesús Wood Works, furniture building/carpentry

I am sure you guys are already familiar with Jesús for his scratchers and towers for cats. I also see many other posts about his carpentry work as well. I just want to add to the praise.

I sent a picture of a king-sized 4 poster bed and in 3 weeks that was exactly what I received.

Punctual, professional, and an overall joy to work with. I would recommend him 1000 times over. And look forward to working with him in the near future.

Recommendation for La Tapita Espanola, restaurant

I recently moved into a new apartment and a new neighborhood. My Spanish teacher (who grew up in Spain), immediately brought me here (I’m sitting here now) so that I could try some real, authentic food from Spain. I now find myself here 2-3 times a week. I’m guessing most of you know about this restaurant as it is located right next to Jennifer and Matthew’s Bagels. (We all know Jennifer. Lol.) But if you don’t know, I strongly recommend checking it out. The food is fantastic. They have outdoor seating in the front and the back. And Jorge & Jannet couldn’t possibly be nicer hosts. In addition, they occasionally have special events with live music and a unique menu. (Although I haven’t attended one yet. Ugh.) Anyway, check it out. I couldn’t recommend it more highly.

Recommendation for Rafael Sucozañay the best, contractor

The Best of the Best Contractor Rafael Sucozañay. When considering a bathroom remodel, one needs to be particular about who one hires to do the work. Having two bathrooms remodeled at the same time can be a nightmare. The best choice we could have made was hiring Rafael Sucozañay. Rafael had performed other tasks for us, but nothing quite this extensive. If I could award him 10 stars, I would do so.

Recommendation for Dra. Stella M. Caraballo Santamaria, clinical psychologist

Having recently found myself in a life changing family drama, I was extremely fortunate and blessed to find a recommendation here on GringoPost for a therapist who has greatly helped me understand, accept, and deal positively with it. Clinical Psychologist Dra. Stella Caraballo Santamaria offers broad training and expertise to assist her patients through life’s challenges. She brings a variety of techniques and psychological models to her clients, promoting deeper acceptance of painful situations and fostering steps toward healing. Her English is excellent and her demeanor is empathetic and reassuring. She offers therapy online or in person. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about her.

Recommendation for LayoverStay Quito Airport, airport lounge

On a recent trip, we had a long layover at the Quito airport. We had experienced a shorter layover on a previous trip where we just hung out in the business center on hard seats at a table with an electrical connection for the laptop. But it really wasn’t comfortable. I thought about booking a hotel for a short, day-time stay on this trip, but that seemed a bit expensive and while there are some inexpensive hotels nearby, many charge extra for transportation if you have a number of suitcases or may even require that you use two taxis to fit them in. We also thought about staying in the business lounge, but that wasn’t available until after check-in – several hours later.
