Recommendation for Cooking with Rey…

excellent, Cambodian-style restaurant

Rey’s husband and gracious maitre d, Joe, welcomed us into what must be one of the most beautiful, surprise settings behind the unstated elegance of the upscale entrances on this quiet street near San Sebastián plaza. And, that was the beginning of our 2 ½ hour culinary adventure. Brisk gin and tonic (real tonic and Bombay Sapphire), sweet and spicy shrimp, well done (in many ways) thick sea bass filet, and traditional Cambodian dessert. Opened 8 weeks ago, but with the ambiance and cuisine of a well-established “must eat there” restaurant with a bright future.

Arguably one of the best penthouses in Cuenca deserved the best pergola. Looked at several companies, including ICIZA, who installed pérgola at time of construction 6 years ago. None of the reasons above could be matched by any of the companies we interviewed.

Armed with our trusty phone app translators and mutual respect the project was

What is happening in Ecuador? – Informative video

This is NOT a post to generate controversy here.

Maybe you don’t know the reason for the protests, but they are based on 10 demands to the Ecuadorian government.

In case you still don’t know these 10 demands, in this video I explain and analyze each of the 10 demands that CONAIE (Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of Ecuador) and protesters are making to the Government, and which are the reason to keep the protests.

Dog looking for permanent home

Adi is a 7-month-old German Shepard, probably a mix but looks like a Shepard. She was rescued in the countryside and I took her in because they could not keep her. I have another dog and it has been physically challenging for me to take care of two dogs. She has had all his shots and was recently spayed. She is loving and very healthy and gets along with people and other dogs. but she is a good guard dog. It would be best for her to have some outdoor space. She loves to be outside.

Our structures can go places hardly any other structure can. From steep forested hill sides to humid land. These structures are so strong you can suspend them like a Christmas tree ornament ball. These are custom designs, locally built at import prices.

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


Decontracting massage at home

This massage is an excellent technique for solving muscular problems and is especially suitable for people with contractures, lumbar discomfort, and stress.

The decontracting massage works on specific areas of accumulated muscle tension in the body. Stress, bad postures, or intensive physical activity can cause contracted muscles and the best way to treat this is a good decontracting massage.

Mexico revives a 3,000-year-old ball game [short video]

From BBC Reel…
In Mexico, a group of athletes are on a mission to revive an ancient sporting tradition – a tribute to the game once enjoyed by their ancestors.

Thought to be approximately 3,000 years old, the Mesoamerican ballgame ‘Juego de Pelota’ could be one of the oldest team sports in the world. It was once played by the Aztecs, Maya and Incas and carries ancient cultural and religious significance.

It was only when Spanish conquistadors banned the game in the 16th Century did the game fade into legend.

Runtime: 4:34

Toy poodle

After researching, would like to get a toy poodle (real poodle). Puppy preferred but adult an option. They weigh 6 to 10 pounds when fully grown and I would like to have a dog small enough that it can fit in a doggie backpack, and that I am strong enough to carry so it can enjoy Cuenca with me. Also wanted this breed due to wanting less allergic pet option.
