High rates of return + safety/security

Because many GringoPost readers may not be familiar with Cooperco, I’d like to introduce this exceptional co-operative to you. Established in Cuenca in 1965, Cooperco has, until now, been focused almost exclusively on servicing the Cuencano community. That exclusive emphasis has begun to shift. In addition to continuing to serve the Cuencano community Cooperco, in 2020, expanded its capability to now include a strong initiative serving Cuenca’s international community. Starting from a decidedly strong base, Cooperco has only grown stronger. It is the cooperative that offers CDs with not only high rates of return but unparalleled safety and security of principal. That’s a combination that is hard to beat.

Driving around Ecuador? Cuenca Car Share

If you want to visit Ecuador on your own rather than try to take a tour somewhere, why not rent a car from Cuenca Car Share? You’ll find late model vehicles delivered as needed – to the coast, to Quito, to your house in Cuenca. We pick up and deliver, making sure the maintenance is kept up to date on each vehicle so you have a safe car to drive. We include insurance, and for certain rentals, we can include free kilometers. Plan ahead – contact me now to book your vacation trip.

Look forward to seeing you at Padre de la Madre on Fridays for Bert’s Frisbee Friday. More laughs, exercise, and fun than you can imagine.

Remember the 5-day holiday is next weekend. More people will be in town and some banks will be closed.

Rain equals muddy feet – Edvi Limpieza Total

As we go through this October, it seems like it is raining quite a bit here in Cuenca. That means that a lot of wet feet will be coming to, and perhaps through, your door. Your garden is growing and plants are becoming greener. But, back to the door – if those wet feet come inside your house, they will bring all kinds of things with them. For cleaning and maintenance (if needed) service, contact Edvi Limpieza Total. We come to give you an estimate and then show up at the appointed time with all our own equipment – gloves, rags, cleaning liquids, vacuum cleaners, brooms – everything needed to leave your home spotless. No worries about paying IESS (required by law for an employee) or SRI – we are a registered small company and pay our own taxes.

Call soon for an appointment. You’ll be glad you did. Working in Cuenca over 16 years with honesty and integrity.

Ecuador Citizenship process, “from the horse’s mouth”

Hi all,

Yesterday, waiting for the visa approval for another client, I had the chance to have a long and productive conversation with the person in charge of the Ecuadorian Citizenship at the Azogues Migration Office, and I received the attached document, with the latest requirements and, it is very clear.

People above 65 years old, are “exentos” (exempted, relieved) to accomplish the general knowledge questions about history, geographic, culture and current reality of Ecuador (the written questionnaire), but have to do the personal interview to prove that they can speak and write in Spanish. In the attached picture, underlined lines.

The only way to avoid both things, the questionnaire and the interview in Spanish is, if you studied a course, post-grade, here in Ecuador and in Spanish, and recognized by the SENESCYT.

Also, the famous “reglamento”, the rules that will help to understand or process the things that are not clear into the Migration law changes, done in the last February, is not published yet, so, many things in migration, goes to the consideration of the migration officers.

If you have questions, let me know.

Yarn and supplies on sale this week at YarnLux

YarnLux has two specials this week. The popular yarn Autumn Wind, which is a sport weight 90% cotton, 10% cashmere, is on sale at 20% off. This is the last time this sumptuous yarn will be on sale for several months.

We are also offering a deal on the Ball Winder & Swift, normally $30 each now a combo price of $50 for both.

The pattern of the week is the “Mosaic Squares Blanket” – free with purchase of yarn or class.

YarnLux – boutique de hilo specializes in natural fibers. Research has shown that sleeping on or underneath wool promotes better sleep. This is because wool is naturally breathable, making it a good temperature regulator. Plus, it takes up and releases moisture which prevents clamminess. People sleep more deeply and longer with wool bedding.

Visit Cuenca’s luxury yarn store, YarnLux – boutique de hilo at Mariscal Lamar 25-95 y Av De Las Americas. We are open Tuesday-Saturday from 10 AM to 3 PM.

Clemencia says at C&C unisex hair design / barber shop

Clemencia Vizhnay who owns the C&C, a family hair salon, say trimming your hair actually encourages hair growth. It may sound counter-intuitive, but the appearance of broken and split-ends not only damages the look and feel of your hair, but it also contributes to the appearance of shorter hair and thinner ends. Freshly cut ends also help to de-tangle your hair turns out, the secret to a great haircut is two-fold. First, you must consider your face shape, and secondly, you need to choose a cut that works with your hair’s texture.

Your best cut according to face shape: When it comes to the actual cut, both experts agree there isn’t always one definitive way to go, but instead, there are a few flattering and standard tips to accentuate features.

Healing often happens when we let go, release the tension and relax. I am offering massages which facilitate this process in a place of peace and serenity – Bromelia, a retreat center in Manglaralto. You will love this place. Every session is a wellness event. Treat yourself – you deserve it.

You can choose between a session with a focus, e.g. back, neck and head (30 min. – $30) or a full body massage (60 min. – $50) or a combination of both (90 min. – $75). Tell me if there are special areas which require attention and I will spend more time focusing on these.

You can use this service anywhere you have stable internet. It is accessed from your PC, Smartphone app, or a VOIP phone.

High rates of return + safety/security

Because many GringoPost readers may not be familiar with Cooperco, I’d like to introduce this exceptional co-operative to you. Established in Cuenca in 1965, Cooperco has, until now, been focused almost exclusively on servicing the Cuencano community. That exclusive emphasis has begun to shift. In addition to continuing to serve the Cuencano community, Cooperco, in 2020, expanded its capability to now include a strong initiative serving Cuenca’s international community. Starting from a decidedly strong base, Cooperco has only grown stronger. It is the cooperative that offers CDs with not only high rates of return but unparalleled safety and security of principal. That’s a combination that is hard to beat.

Kolly needs your help

Greetings GringoPost friends,

I’m Karen and I have rescued a little kitten very badly hurt. I don’t have what I need to help her. She needs a responsible family to love her and take good care of her. She needs to be spayed and vaccinated, but I don’t have what I need for that.

So I need your help.

This kitten is a little affectionate and she is also shy because of the mistreatment she has received all her life.

I need your help, please!

Cuenca
