Do I have to pay taxes in Ecuador?

To briefly explain my situation, I am a US citizen living in Ecuador for 6 years now. I also have my Ecuadorian citizenship. I just started working for Only Fans making my own income, which is a US based site. I was told I have to file my own taxes because it’s considered self-employment, but is it different because I’m outside the US?

If you have any knowledge on this i would really appreciate your sharing it.

Son of Man: Urantia, About page and Podcast

From the About page at SonofMan: Urantia at

Hello Everybody!

This is Bobby Kezer, and you are at the Son of Man: Urantia, project.

Welcome! And I hope you’re having a fantastic day out there.

So, Son of Man: Urantia is the short form of the life and teachings of Jesus found in Part 4 of the Urantia Book. In other words, I’m rewriting the original story into language accessible to more people. I’ve been posting chapters and highlights weekly on the Son of Man: Urantia podcast, and here on my substack page since last October. And people, this is turning out to be the most exhilarating experience of my life. Talk about being humbled. Anyway, I get goosebumps, like I’ve got right now, every time I see another example in the news of how timely and needed these lessons are in what seems to be a world becoming more confused with itself every day.


Darling Sophie – Hypoallergenic!

She is a Shih Tzu and is about four-years-old. She was rescued when the family she lived with moved and left her behind. A neighbor realized what had happened and brought her to a clinic to be checked. Now she is healthy, well-fed, and spayed. She has all her shots.

She is well mannered and never chews on anything she hasn’t been given to chew on. She jumps up on the furniture only after being invited. She loves to be petted and have her shoulders rubbed and her head scratched.

Last week I fell and hurt my knee so it is very difficult for me to take her for walks. I have to walk slowly and Sophie doesn’t understand why I’m going so slow. She pulls me when something needs to be investigated and I am afraid that she will pull me over if I don’t expect it. My balance is not as good as I would like.

Also, I have noticed that after staying in the apartment every day with no one to play with, she gets irritable and growls at some people and some dogs. I don’t know how she chooses who or what she will bark at. I feel sad that I can’t give her more fun and exercise.

She needs a home that can give her love, good health care, exercise, and shoulder rubs and head scratches.

Sophie is sweet and beautiful.

Volunteer English teaching position

Hello! I’m a former visitor/resident of Ecuador looking to come this summer and volunteer as an English teacher or in some other capacity. I’m open to all possibilities. I lived in Quito (for a short time) and in Banos, Tungurahua for about a year. I would prefer a small town like Banos, La Selva or somewhere in Chimborazo. But, as I said, I’m open to all possibilities. Thank you for your help.

Chicken pot pies by Bernan’s Home Canned Foods

We recently got another request to make and sell chicken pot pies. Whenever we get a request, we always at least try to make whatever the dish is. Sometimes it doesn’t work to our satisfaction but I have to tell you… this time it did! Our Chicken Pot Pies remind me of the pies by Marie Callender. The only difference may be not as much crust. After some trial and error, we decided to only make ours with a bottom crust and a top crust. They are a good size portion 15 oz. and the cost is $4.50.


Spanish lessons online

Do you want to improve your Spanish or just start learning from scratch with a native speaker? I am a certified native Spanish teacher since 2018. I have been teaching foreign language to people from several cultures and ages.

My approach on the lessons will depend on your needs, time and what would you like to achieve. The goal is to make you feel comfortable speaking Spanish, gain more fluency while you learn more about the different cultures that the Spanish speaking countries have. You don’t need to have any basis in Spanish, and from the first lesson we will be practicing the different areas to achieve that goal.

If you would like to try, I can offer you the first class for free and we can discuss more without any commitment.

Platforms used:
Google meet.
Don’t hesitate on contacting me in any of these ways:

“Real Deal” BBQ at Pájaro y Bestia

Chicken is chicken is chicken you say. We say you are wrong. This week we are serving chicken wings. We fully cook the wings on one of our smokers. Then we flash fry them for only two minutes at the time you order to crisp up the skin for better texture.

And just like our hugely popular ribs, the wings are served with sauce on the side because we have nothing to hide. We believe that our ribs and wings do not need to be sauced, but we will always have sauces available if that is your preference.

IV Vitamin Therapy: Glutathione IV + Vit C

Glutathione combines three amino acids: cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine. It is known as the ‘master antioxidant’ – and for a good reason!

Glutathione production, unfortunately, decreases with age. This is one reason why age spots are common as we grow older. This decline in production worsens with a high-stress lifestyle, poor eating habits or poor quality food, excessive toxins like smoking, alcohol or environmental pollutants and poor sleep, amongst other reasons.

Glutathione has many possible benefits, including:


Full lymph drainage massage – 90-minute session

Did you know that the lymphatic system helps your body eliminate toxins, waste, and other unwanted materials?

A healthy lymphatic system can usually do this without a problem, but certain health conditions and physical damage can cause fluid buildup.

Lymphatic drainage massage, also known as manual lymphatic drainage, is a gentle massage to relieve painful swelling in your arms and legs.

Coca leaves

Dear friends of Gramm, we want to share with you some information about coca leaves:

Coca tea has been heavily used by indigenous people in South America for thousands of years and is made by steeping the leaves of the coca plant in boiling water. This allows the powerful phytonutrients to infuse into the water. In many parts of South America, this tea is known as mate de coca, and the greenish-yellow color is reminiscent of green tea.

The many benefits of coca tea are mainly the result of phytonutrients, as well as vitamin C, vitamin E, and B-family vitamins.

Coca tea
Most preparations call for using whole leaves, as plenty of the active ingredients will infuse the tea without crushing or cutting the leaves. Due to the stimulant qualities of coca tea, 1-2 cups per day is the recommended dose.

Benefits of Coca Tea
Coca tea should be used by people who experience altitude sickness, indigestion, fatigue, hyperactivity, frequent colds and infections, obesity, constipation, indigestion, diabetes and those with high cholesterol.

Hiking in Cajas

Hiking is a non-competitive sporting activity that consists of walking along a specific itinerary. It is usually done on trails marked by the competent organism of each country, but also on trails, rural roads and greenways without homologation. Hiking seeks to bring people closer to the natural environment and to the knowledge of the area through heritage and traditional ethnographic and cultural elements, using especially dirt trails.

If you want to come hiking at Cajas I could guide you the route 1, enjoying the hike and its traditional local flora and fauna. Includes fresh fruits and light break.

Uzhupud Garden the new gem of Ecuagenera

On my school trip back in 1988 I visited, for the first time, Huertos Uzhupud, and it was a waooo on my head. Not sure if it was because this old farm house was magic or because I was only 12.

60 min drive from Cuenca on the way to Paute is Huertos Uzhupud, an old hacienda with more than 250 years of history that became one of the most fantastic places to spend the weekend with family and friends, for all the Cuencanos.

Years back, it was sold to Jorge Portilla, founder and owner of the most beautiful Orquideareo in Azuay, called Ecuagenera.

Sr Portilla, his family and his team have been working hard to re-open to the public this gem now called, Uzhupud Garden

So let’s make a trip to visit this gem and lets all say wooaaooooo!

A day of relaxing between flowers and friends.
