Looking for

Homeschool co-op or curriculum recommendation

I am trying to find homeschoolers in Ecuador, that may meet in a co-op fashion. We have not visited the country yet, but are looking to visit in the coming months, so I’ve started looking, but I’m not finding many hits, besides families that travel a lot. Primarily looking for the best options for curriculum.

I put Salinas, because the city options didn’t have any of their cities/towns that I was looking for. Looking for areas north of Salinas, at this point.

Thanks!

Currently, there are 57 dogs and two kitties that are being lovingly cared for at the sanctuary. Add to that, 5 new puppies. If you’re interested in adopting or fostering, please contact Patan.

Pet food is running low and we could use your generous support to replenish the dwindling supply. If you’re so inclined, please help us to feed the innocent creatures that rely on us.

Seeking dogs with wounds

Hello, my name is Andrea Espinosa, I am a veterinarian and I am doing my master’s thesis. The work that I am going to carry out has the following characteristics:

A couple of creams will be tried that accelerate the healing of the skin, it does not interfere with any treatment that is already being given and only the time in which the wound heals will be measured with any of these creams or without them. It is totally natural.

I need puppies with

1. Open wounds of at least 3 cm that are not sutured

2. The wounds can be anywhere on the body except on the legs in the parts from elbow to hands and from knees to legs

3. I will apply topical treatment which will have no cost to the owner, who will sign an agreement for their pet to be part of the study. (Antibiotic, anti-inflammatory and analgesic treatment will be given by this patient’s veterinarian and is not included in the study. It will be paid for by the owner)

4. I will attend the veterinary clinic of whoever the patient is to take photos and samples of the wound as soon as they call me and I will make the reviews at that veterinary clinic, the mobilization is at my own expense

5. They can also be wounds that did not heal with suture and remain open for at least 3cm

6. If the contact is directly with the owner or person in charge of the puppy, the consultation and the topical treatment is free, the antibiotic, analgesic is the responsibility of the owner or person in charge.

(Applies to the city of Cuenca and nearby cantons)

Durable power of attorney (benefits of power of attorney)

Durable power of attorney: This appoints another person to transact business, legal, financial and health matters for you in case you are not available for different reasons.

Why do you need it? Lets say you are incapacitated by an accident or illness, or only by trip. This POA allows the person you have chosen to act for you—and quickly. That can help you avoid a lot of problems, including hard-to-get guardianship and conservatorship rights.

Hold the date, the grand opening for El Mundo Orgánico’s Store!!

Come one, come all.The grand opening for El Mundo Orgánico’s store will be held on Saturday, 23 January, from 9 AM until 4 PM.

In addition to the many fresh and healthy products available in our store, we are hosting a mini-Feria on our large patio area in front of our store! Plenty of street parking is available in front of the store.
Social distancing and all the health protocols will be observed for your protection.

Several of our suppliers will be on hand to greet you as well. Here is a list of the suppliers who will be joining us to celebrate our Grand Opening:

— Felix, from “King’s Smokehouse”, is bringing many of his pork products, such as his bacon, sausages, sliced ham, etc., and other fabulous, quality products;
— Tyrone from “The Cuenca Shop” will be here to offer many of his unique products, which may include some of his imported liquors, vitamins, organic chocolate bars and other cacao products, as well as perhaps Young Living and/or doTerra Essential Oils (I will have more details on the list of products Tyrone will bring on Monday evening, which I will pass on to you);
— “SIZÚ Lab” will be here to provide samples of their freshly made bagels and cream cheese, as well as many of their scrumptious and fresh, vegan, vegetarian, sugar-free and organic taste treats. SIZÚ Labs makes, among a host of other fresh products, pepper relish, hummus, pomodoro sauce, pastrami with fine herbs, an onion chutney confit, granola, caponata and sugar-free “sweets”, such as “Double Chocolate Cookies”, sugar-free sweetened almonds, and sugar-free “Brownies” and “Peanut Butter Bars”;
— Paul Sanchez of “Nunkui”, an Amazonia Ecoferia retail store in El Centro that contributes from its sales to the conservation of Ecuador’s natural resources, the biodiversity of the Amazon, and to the sustainable development of the largest and most diverse rainforest in the world, will be presenting hand-made ceramics; organic hand and body lotions; spices; and soaps among additional products from the Amazon;
— “BYOB” will be here to discuss their own environmentally-conscious products as well as “Dr. Abeeja” organic honey products. Among BYOB’s most popular products are: Their very popular “BYOB Trail Mix”, “BYOB Peanut Butter” (smooth and crunchy), a line of shampoos, including a shampoo made in a solid bar, and a conditioner, hand and body soaps, and a Nutella-like hazelnut spread;
— “La Mia” will be here with their always-popular and delicious goat cheeses, such as Greek Feta and Chevre with Jalepeños, and their artisanal liqueurs (Baileys-style, Tia Maria-style and Kahlua-style), as well as their very popular and delicious dill pickles, white sauerkraut and red sauerkraut;
— “Par Arte” from Colombia, known for their “Dot Art”, will not only have some of their hand-painted artwork and gift items available for sale on Saturday, but they will also have samples of their new “Frutos Secos” and other edibles; and
— Last, but not least, Diana from “Hoppe Café”, arguably one of the most delicious coffees in Ecuador, will be here to discuss with you the qualities of the coffees found here in Ecuador.
Our store will also be open for you to purchase any of our fresh organic produce, our “natural” produce (meaning that they are free from hormones, chemical fertilizers and/or chemical insecticides and are grown by employing organic methodologies, but they cannot be labeled or certified as “organic” yet) and other available products.
Our product range is diverse and is ever-growing! You can make your selections from additional organic products, such as wine, coffees, flours, white and whole grain rice, soaps, shampoos and conditioners, toothbrushes and toothpastes, as well as other organic products to gluten-free, lactose-free, sugar-free, and/or biodegradable products. We also carry artisanal products made by local providers that you may encounter at other ferias (pre-pandemic).
We hope to see you here on Saturday, 23 January, between 9 AM and 4 PM.

Directions to our store location:

From the Simon Bolivar Redondel on Av. de Las Americas (near the SuperMaxi-Las Americas, Ordoñez Lasso and Gran Columbia), go south on Las Americas.
Make a right turn (going west) onto Autopista 582–Via Cuenca-Molleturo-Naranjal (also known as “Enrique Arízaga Toral” and/or “El Medio Eljido” by most taxi drivers).
At the first traffic light on Autopista 582 going west from Las Americas, turn left onto Francisco Cisneros. Once you have turned left onto Francisco Cisneros, El Mundo Orgánico is located on the ground floor of the first building on the left on Francisco Cisneros.

Please do not confuse “El Mundo Orgánico” with “Mundo Orgánico”, which is located on Los Andes in Totoracocha.

For a map to our location, please go to our website (www.elmundoorganico.com). Google Maps shows the corner of Francisco Cisneros and Via Cuenca-Molleturo-Naranjal and the building where our store is located as it looked nearly 10 years ago. We have added photos of our store to try to help you locate us.

Payments: At this time, we accept cash only for payments.

Urgent help needed ASAP

Your help is urgently needed ASAP for a severely injured doggie, whom we have named Ginger. Her paw has been broken and bones are protruding! She is only about a year old and has suffered so much already.

Two weeks ago she was found after being hit by a car near Deleg. A caring person picked her up and by wheelbarrow brought her home. This person is unable to contribute financially to the care of the poor doggie and so Patan Rescue Group was contacted and agreed to step up.

Ginger is at Dr. Gallardo’s office in Cuenca and is waiting for the much-needed surgery. We are asking for your help to cover the surgery expense of approximately $300.

Any and all donations will be gladly accepted. Thank you for helping us compassionately care for Ginger.

Donations may be made directly to via PayPal to Patan Rescue Group

www.paypal.me/patanrescueec

or in person to Clinica Veterinaria Gallardo at Calle Guayas 4-53 y Remigio Crespo.
098 723 2618.

If you would like to meet Ginger, she is available for visitations.

Photos to be posted this morning. Warning some are graphic.

Dog trainer

I am in need of a good, recommended dog trainer. I need someone with advanced trainer skills and experience. I have a 3 -4 yr. old Samoyed who I rescued from an abandoned life on the roof tops of Cuenca.

He had had no human company, and in fact little to eat but a few bread rolls a day. He is very good natured, and kind. But he gets terribly excited at walk time, cannot control his fear of non-neutered male dogs, and has a high prey index – he wants to chase anything moving fast, cars and other dogs. I can only walk him between 1 and 2 when the park is quiet, as the other people don’t understand. They think he might attack them and their dogs – in fact he has never attacked anything. He just wants to chase and make friends.

If there is anyone out there who can help, please let me know. Many thanks.

Is Family Jeans still in business?

There was a guy – I think his name was Gerardo? – in the Feria Libre, doing business as Family Jeans. He had worked in the US, I think for Levi. I had several pairs of jeans made a couple of years ago, and was happy with them. With Covid, I have not been exploring the Feria Libre these days, but need new jeans and wondered if he was still around. Does anyone know, and if so, have current contact info? The number I have in my old phone does not work for him anymore. Thanks.

Rats!

I live across the street from the river. A rat hole has opened up in my front yard and they are consuming packets of rat poison like candy. I can keep buying more…maybe this brand is ineffective, or maybe the whole river colony is stopping by. Does the city have a rat elimination program? (Okay, stop laughing). Any helpful suggestions?

All Children Deserve to Dream program

Great News, Hearts of Gold Foundation has reactivated the All Children Deserve to Dream program. This 2021, we will bring empowerment, positivity, and hope to the children of our partner organizations.

Every child deserves to dream, but in Ecuador dreaming is a privilege. Some children do not know when their next hot meal is going to be. Others study by candlelight, and many more lack the medicine they need to make it through the day. Often, nonprofits become a home away from home for these children. We are honored to work with excellent organizations that are serving 350+ vulnerable youth, covering their basic needs and giving them the chance to have a dream. Now, we want to show Ecuadorian children that dreams do come true, and we need your help to fulfill each one of them.

Please help us fulfill the dreams of the children we serve and donate to the All Children Deserve to Dream Campaign on the link below.
http://heartsofgoldfoundation.org/all-children-deserve-to-dream/

Or you can donate the items required for the dreams for example bikes, toys, clothes, and others; please send us an email or contact us on our social channels and get to know more about the children and their specific dreams.

Thank you for being part of Hearts of Gold and supporting the dreams of our children.

Looking for a translator/interpreter? Are you struggling with internet?

I am Maria Penafiel, a law student. A little background about myself, I am 24-years old, and I speak fluent English, along with that I have also studied German, and as of now, I am studying Italian. I love diversity which is why I love to travel I have been to Italy, the US, and also have traveled within Ecuador. I’ve been to the Galapagos, the Amazon, Chimborazo, Quito and Banos de Ambato. My beautiful country is full of diversity and I am excited for you to get to experience it. I am already planning my upcoming trip. I am currently working in a local law firm while working on my thesis (Senior project as you might know it), so I’m almost ready to get my law degree.

I have many different work experiences such as labor law, family, company incorporation, civil and criminal issues, and mediation. I have experience in translating legal or non-legal documents. Therefore, I can assist or advise and translate papers that you need to do at the notary’s office, but my experience is not limited to law; if you have any day-to-day errands and the language barrier is an issue I can help you with it.

I can help you with real estate, leaving the country, buying or renting apartments, houses, vehicles. Also, I know you deserve to get the service that you have paid for, therefore, I can help you communicate with any company and/or person that you might need. I am not a health insurance agent and do not represent any company but speak English fluently. If your agent is not helpful, I can advocate on your behalf to get the health care benefits you deserve.

I do not solve Internet problems, but I can help you deal with the Internet provider to report slow Internet or Internet cuts. I can help you with any difficulty you may have with service bills, telephone plans, electricity or water bills, coordination between hospitals and health insurance plans, etc. Don’t miss those special promotions. As you might know, Internet/cable services and many more, have special sales when you ask for it. I can help you look for a cheaper alternative that is better suited for you. So don’t be shy. I can intermediate as an interpreter to get the best deal for you. If you need to shop or go out on the town and need a translator, I can help you to break the language barrier.

I charge $9.50 an hour, but if you need more than two hours you can get a discount. If we need to go in person to an office and you need transportation we can go in my car, it will be an extra (but usually it is minimal). Rest assured that we have all the security measures in place, we protect you and ourselves. I’m happy to help you in any way I can.

I can come for you or we can meet at a specific place in the city. Let’s get you the best “cuencana” experience!

Let me be your translator and advocate, I want to be able to help you so you can communicate.

Seeking feedback on CDs and Coops

I am researching 4 Co-ops for buying some CDs. I would like to get feedback from others re: safety and risks.
The 4 Co-ops are Cooperco, JEP, Jardin Azuayo and CREA.
COSEDE insures CDs up to $32,000 per bank or Coop, if the Co-op has a solvency level higher than 9%, which puts them in Segment 1. I am not sure what solvency level means exactly.

Cooperco has the highest solvency level of 19.56%
Jardin Azuayo is 17.98%
JEP is low, at 12.78%
CREA is only 9.66%

The first 3 pay about 8,5%/yr for a 1 yr CD.
But CREA pays 9.5%

I would like feedback about whether CREA is a good or bad risk for the higher interest. I appreciate any other feedback also.

Thank you for your help.

Covid19 infections increase in Cuenca

Confirmed cases of COVID-19 continue to increase in Cuenca. Until January 7, the Coordination of Zone 6 of the Ministry of Health registered 4,214 positive and active cases of the new coronavirus in the canton.

The trend, which is going up, was expected mainly due to the Christmas and New Year holidays, which have left, between January 4 and 8, 86 new infections in Cuenca.

Doctors’ concern has been expressed in recent days by the situation in hospitals, which continue to lack space in the Intensive Care Units.

The best way to protect yourself is to wear masks approved by the World Health Organization, such as the KN95 with filter, which provide air that is 95% free of viruses or dangerous particles.

I am Andrés Guillermo, distributor for Cuenca and Azuay of these masks. Do not risk your life and that of your family, use masks adaptable to your face, comfortable, safe that do not cloud your lenses. Contact me, it will be a pleasure to arrive at your door with this product.

Professional driver and facilitator available

Driving in the rain is totally different than driving on dry roads. Many of you know that. During the rainy season, people may drive more dangerously, too, as they are not used to slick, slippery roads.

Hi, I’m Emilio. Many of you already know me. I am an experienced driver with extensive knowledge of Cuenca and Ecuador. I’m available for short or long drives. I have a variety of vehicles available from a taxi to a small car to an SUV – whatever makes you comfortable. No matter the size of the car, due to Covid restrictions, I will only take 3 passengers duly equipped with sanitary precautions. My vehicle will be sanitized and I will have my mask in place. Bring your water, hand sanitizer, and anything that will make you comfortable for the duration of our journey. Your safety is my priority.

Contact me soon to set up your travel dates. Thank you.

Not only am I a safe driver, I am also a skilled facilitator. I have facilitated for many expats here in Cuenca and around Ecuador. My skills include translating for doctors, in the hospital, helping resolve issues with attorneys, banks, bills, and shopping. If you want references, just ask me – I have lots of them. Contact me on Facebook or WhatsApp.
