Lost phone in taxi

I lost my phone, probably in a taxi, last night around 7 PM going from Diagnóstico Radiológico at Jose Peralta y Doce de Abril (edificio Acropolis) to Ordoñez Lasso 5-55 (cerca de Los Cedros, apartment 1002), where I live. It was in a blue/azul vinyl sleeve such as is used for eyeglasses (gafas). If found, please email to cameron@hvi.net or cameron9121129@gmail.com.

Quito courier?

Have lost a good deal of money with other couriers and am eager to find a satisfactory one. Yesterday I was told about this one. Do you have experience with the Quito courier who uses Servientrega to deliver to Cuenca, with deposit first to her bank acct. here?

How long between US deliveries to this courier and Cuenca delivery? And comparative shipping costs?
Thanks for your time and sharing.

Real stories from the Hogar- trying to get home

Juan Carlos and Maria worked together in Uruguay and had accumulated some savings. Their plan was to buy some land and build a house together. Then Covid hit. Maria fell very ill and as a result, she was left partially paralyzed. Juan Carlos spent all the money on private doctors and clinics trying to find a solution for her illness, however she did not get any better. With nothing left, they had no choice but to forget their dreams and go back home to Colombia where family could help take care of Maria.

Looking for pure baking soda in Cuenca

It seems that over-the-counter baking soda here is mixed with salt to be used for cleaning, but not for internal detox.

Australian wine: Penfolds 2016 Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz – limited supply

Only 3 Available in Cuenca
$195 dach
Available via order through Cuenca Shop

Grape variety
51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 49% Shiraz

Alc/Vol: 14.5%

Nose: An immediate ascent of scent
– no need to wait or to vigorously swirl this wine to tease out ‘what lies beneath’! Dark berry fruits consistent to both varietal persuasions, (cabernet and shiraz), overtly courted by elements of ponzu, soy, sesame and dried shiitake mushroom.
Senses are easily conveyed to a forest after rain – wet bracken, liberated mulch, damp soils. Naturally (new and used) oak plays a (minor) role in this fanciful aromatic romp.


Palate: Flavors and textures akin to marbled Kobe beef and an earthy accompaniment of black licorice root and anise.
Structurally bold with little protruding – integrated, fine … and has comfortably already “settled into place”.
‘Appetizing’ acidity – a non-intrusive and refreshing granita-like bite/attaque.
Assam tea maltiness and tannins merge with impressions of wet slate, pencil lead/graphite … no doubt somehow linked to earlier partial barrel fermentation and oak maturation.
Needs time, as per most Bin 389’s at release. Perhaps a little longer for this vintage? Our recommendation – your choice.

2022 immigration update

Ecuador is a developing country, and because of this it is a country that is constantly looking for changes, improvements, and updates to its laws. No country has perfect laws, but at least in Ecuador it is evident that we are dedicated to improving. Ecuador has ranked as the second most popular country for North American retirees according to the latest edition of International Living magazine. This recognition is beginning to signal to local authorities that being a destination country for retirees brings with it many benefits, but also many challenges, especially regarding immigration.

The importance of getting a second doctor’s opinion in Ecuador

A few months ago I received a call in the middle of the night from one of our clients who was suffering from severe knee pain. His doctor had suggested immediate surgery on both of his knees at a price of $9,000, which immediately alarmed me. I contacted one of our other client’s doctors and got an appointment set for the next day. The other doctor concluded that physical therapy and medication would solve the issue, and for less than $2,000, without a painful surgery. This is just one of the many cases that I have seen in which the treating physician proposes an invasive procedure without considering the client’s specific situation or exploring other options first.

What is glutathione IV infusion therapy?

Glutathione is a tripeptide—a combination of three amino acids called cysteine, glycine, and glutamine. It’s present in most of the cells in our bodies, though it’s most often found concentrated in the liver.

Glutathione contains a sticky sulfur chemical group that collects all the bad molecules floating around in your body and neutralizes them. These are called free radicals, and when they’re eliminated, your immune system gets a massive boost
