Was I “taken to the cleaners?”

Recently I took an expensive sweater to the cleaners. About a week after I picked it up, I wanted to wear it but it was much too small, now shrunken, and the finish changed. I returned to the cleaners to show them and was only then told that when there is a problem after cleaning, the item must be returned within 24 hours.

Christmas is coming – La Mia Mascota Pet and Vet Shop

At Christmas time, we love to remember the members of our family with various kinds of gifts. Typically, our dogs and cats (hamsters, rabbits, but maybe not fish) receive little gifts for the occasion. This year, support your local industry and purchase pet products made right here in Cuenca by Productos Betoven.

One of our clients recently noticed the high quality of the Productos Betoven bedding that we stock. She studied the label, the beds, noted the zipper, and finally asked, “are these products made in Ecuador?” Yes, they are made in Cuenca. Customers have commented about the high quality of the materials and noted that if the spongy filling goes flat after extended use, it can be replaced. What more could you want? Available in your pet’s favorite colors (mine likes green), these are more affordable than imports from China or the US and are very durable. Productos Betoven also makes a variety of pet care products and litter.

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound which works to alleviate pain, protect the brain, decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease, help with weight loss, improve Diabetes, fight cancer, and assist in the treatment of several other health conditions.

Recommendation for Rami Riden hair salon

Over the years we have tried various hair salons in Cuenca. I know new expats arriving will probably do the same. It takes a while to find just the right stylist. We just had our hair trimmed at Rami Riden for the third time and he is consistently good. He was the stylist for Miss Venezuela prior to moving to Ecuador and you can view many photos on his FB Page. His WhatsApp # is 099 900 0427. His salon is located on Alfonso Borrero about 1/2 block down from Remigio Crespo.

Recommendation for Leo and Magi, errands, transportation, pet sitting and cleaning

Recommendation for Leo, Magi and Family

We left for 3 weeks, and Leo’s family stayed in our apartment primarily to pet sit our cat.

They are all extremely professional, flexible and reasonable in price. Our return was postponed due to the Soccer tournament, and they could stay an extra 2 nights for us.

Every day I got a video message of Sassy and she was very happy!


Recommendation for Daniel Osorio, DMT Agency: E-commerce specialists

I hired Daniel mid project due to issues with my first tech advisor. He picked up on things immediately, correcting problems and designing a path forward.
His expertise on all things technical are excellent, but his insight into workings of different platforms is even more outstanding. He understands design, interfacing, search criteria, e-commerce marketing, and key word advertising.
I am keeping Daniel on project for advice and troubleshooting because I respect his knowledge base and his ability to utilize it at very affordable prices.
And he’s an engaging and pleasant in all business dealings…
