Taking pet to US

Yes, I know that you cannot take a dog to the United States at this time. But I still would like to know of a veterinarian that does microchips and can draw the titers and work with the approved laboratory in Brazil. Just trying to get my ducks lined up when the US lifts the ban.

Thanks,

Phone plans for text messages

I went to Jardin Azuay to open a bank account and they insisted that I need a local phone number to get text messages, even though I don’t need to call anybody who doesn’t have google voice, skype or zoom. I don’t need to add additional expenses to pay for services I don’t use and don’t want.

Does anyone know of phone plans that give you free text messages and minutes which don’t expire?

One-year old Lab-retriever mix needs a loving home

Wally is a one-year old male, who looks like a yellow-Lab mix and golden retriever mix, abandoned by his former owner. He’s a fairly big, but gentle dog, weighing around 50 lbs (23 kgs) right now. He’ll probably fill out to a bit more when he fully matures (60+ lbs maybe). He was found in pretty rough shape by someone who was able to provide immediate/urgent care, but who is unable to provide a stable home. Wally is extremely smart, friendly and engaging, enjoys human contact, and is playful with children and other dogs. He is house-trained and exhibits no aggressive behavior, he seems very trainable, and answers to his name. Although his current caretaker (who recently rescued him from the streets) is unable to provide a stable home for him, she intends to get him neutered within the next week or so.

Gramm Bulkshop / coca leaves

Dear friends, 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.

Recommendation for La Pizza de Juanja, restaurant

We ordered pizza from La Pizza De Juanja and were so delighted with the quality. It was the best pizza we’ve had in Cuenca. We have been here for six years, and have tried several pizza restaurants. This was by far the best. Thin crust, gourmet toppings and perfect pomodoro sauce. Looking forward to being there in person.

Recommendation for Hacienda Chan Chan, dairy

Want Buttermilk? My mother’s southern recipes call for buttermilk and baking soda in cornbread and biscuits. Despite following directions on how to make buttermilk from whole milk, I had not found a satisfactory solution until I asked Julie at Hacienda Chan Chan if she could supply buttermilk. It doesn’t look or taste like what I was used to, but it works for both the cornbread and biscuits. It also freezes well. Give it a try if you want buttermilk for cooking.

Covid case projections

Does anyone know enough about the health system information to direct me to projections for future Covid cases, specifically post-Carnaval? Or if such an animal even exists? From recent history, we know the numbers are going to climb post crazy holiday, probably significantly.

A friend with some health issues wants to visit at that time, but wants to make an informed decision. Thanks in advance.

Traveling with my dog to Ecuador

I am relocating to Cuenca in the next few months and wanted to see if anyone has had any recent experience transporting their dog to Ecuador. I would like to fly with him on the same flight if possible into Guayaquil, the crate for him is XL 48″ L x 35.5 ” H x 32″ W… a lot of the airlines and some shippers cannot handle the XL crate. Has anyone gone thru this process by themselves or could point me in the right direction?

Thanks,

Sean Doherty

The sale includes security cameras, EMF blocking products, filtered water pitchers, AAA and AA and 9V USB rechargeable batteries, and more. We will keep you posted on the delivery of new products.

Meanwhile, we will still hold the old price of $149 for anyone that wants to get on the waiting list for our room air purifiers. After seeing the outrageous price increase in shipping costs, the new price (for anyone that isn’t on the waiting list) will be $169. Extra filters are also on the ship – $15. To get on the waiting list, just e-mail us.

Stay connected with “The Buddy Circle”

The Buddy Circle is an easy-to-use emergency monitoring system with which you and a chosen group of friends or family can remain aware of each other’s wellbeing. It has been designed as an automatic daily check-in system, on your cell phone, at a time of your choosing.

Each person can initiate only ONE circle of up to 8 People. However, he or she can be asked to join any number of other people’s circles if asked to by friends or family. To create a circle, an invitation must be sent to those you would like to be included in your circle.

Once you set a time to be notified, the system will ask you to check in at that time on a daily basis. If you fail to check in, the system will attempt to contact you two more times, at 30-minute intervals. If there is no response after three tries, it will alert your contacts that there is a possible problem. It will also provide your address and a Google map of your location.

The program is available now in English and Spanish in both the Apple and Android app stores. It may also be accessed through one of the following links:
