Parcel with medications from the US to Cuenca

Thank you,

Which is better – depositing a check or transferring the money?

It’s great that Banco Pichincha will accept a US check for deposit into your account (not all financial institutions in Cuenca do) but beware of the time differences in when the money will become available for withdrawal if you deposit a check rather than transfer the money from your US bank.

Yesterday, a Banco Pichincha employee advised me that funds might not be available for withdrawal for 21 – 30 working days if a check is deposited; but if the money is transferred, the funds are available for withdrawal in only 2 business days.

Fig Newtony type cookie

Does anyone know where to buy Fig Newtons, or
Fig Newton-type cookies? A soft fruit-filled cakey-cookie treat? Maybe a local panadería makes something similar.

Obtaining more items every day here at Red Tag Moving Sales

Hi everyone! I have been doing estate/moving sales here in Cuenca for the past 7 years.

I usually do the sales from people’s homes that are leaving Cuenca but this year just due to so many requests from people that are leaving but don’t have enough items to have a sale, per se, I have started selling items individually! Boy-oh-boy is business booming! For example, I am picking up two televisions, a double door beautiful refrigerator, gas tanks, tables, a set of custom-made down feather stuffed loungers, a lovely sofa, etc. on Monday from a couple that moving to the coast.

I will be posting these items at a future date and will also incorporate items into my future estate sales.

So… if you are ever looking for anything in particular, want to sell some of your things or all of your things just shoot me an email.

Thank you for all your tremendous support for me these past 8 years and happy shopping,

Monk fruit

Dear friends of Gramm, we share with you some information about monk fruit:

The monk fruit in addition to its calorie-free sweetening potential, monk fruit extract helps lower cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood sugar, improves liver function, and reduces symptoms of certain allergies and asthma.

Here we have some of the benefits of monk fruit:

* Helps fight infections as it contains anti-inflammatory properties that inhibit the growth of bacteria, helping to prevent sore throats and coughs.
* It can help reduce the risk of diabetes, helps lower glucose levels and increase insulin secretion.
* Helps reduce inflammation due to its anti-inflammatory effects, which contributes to the prevention of diseases
* It can help fight fatigue and increase the body’s energy naturally.
* It is an alternative to other types of sugar and helps overweight people lower their total caloric intake while fighting sugar cravings.
