Honey, I shrunk the…

…merino wool cardigan.

I love this cardigan and have always been careful with it but for some reason it made it into the dryer.

Sooo, does anyone know an expert at unshrinking wool. I have seen some YouTubes on how this is done, I tried it but I was not as successful as I had hoped.

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.

Calling all Digital Nomads

 First, what the heck is a Digital Nomad? It’s simple:
 
• A Digital Nomad is someone who lives outside the USA but works for a company in the USA.  
• It’s someone who found a way to live someplace most of us dream about going to for a vacation.  
• It’s someone who discovered the American Dream is still Alive. It’s just a bit further south than they imagined.

In our case, that “someplace” was Cuenca, Ecuador. Yep. We have been living in Cuenca, a 500-year-old colonial jewel in the foothills of the Andes for nearly five years.

What’s so great about being a Digital Nomad in Ecuador? As Jerry Maguire said – “Show me the Money”.  

• No income tax: The first $108,500 dollars you make a year is exempt from IRS taxes based upon the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion (FEIE). And since you are not working in Ecuador, you pay no income
• Cost of living: $1 = $5. If you can make $50k here it’s like making $250,000 in the USA.
• No currency exchange: Ecuador uses the American Dollar.
• Same time zone: Six months of the year we’re on Dallas Time, Six months of the year were’ on Eastern Time.


American companies have learned many lessons from Covid. But some of the most important might be:
• What jobs can be done by someone working from home?
• The savings of eliminating Brick and Mortar Office Expenses.
• Millions of these folks will continue working from home and will never go back to a traditional office.
That brings us to the next big move.
If you can work from home, home can be anywhere.
There are three types of people we want to talk to:
• IT professionals already living in Latin America or the Caribbean?
• IT professionals living in the USA dreaming about living in Latin America or the Caribbean?
• Anyone else, regardless of your skillset, that speaks English and has a job that can done by someone working from home.
If the answer is yes, or even maybe, we would like to tell you our story and learn a bit about yours.
We are a team of Expats and other English speakers, living in Latin American and the Caribbean. From our headquarters in Cuenca, Ecuador we have clients all over America that we work with to provide services such as:

• Customer Service
• Inbound Sales
• Outbound Sales
• Data Entry
• Website Design
• Software Development
• Social Media Marketing

Current Openings

ISO treadmill for therapy

Hi Expat Community, we are looking for a gently used treadmill for my husband’s therapy. He is recovering from nerve damage and it is difficult for him to walk because of balance, especially on uneven ground or pavement. If you have a reasonably priced treadmill that you are no longer using (or are using it to hang clothes), please let us know. We live in the campo, but come into Cuenca several days per week.

Thanks,

Looking for Men’s Goretex running shoes – size 11

Hello Cuenca Friends, My husband wants Men’s Goretex (Waterproof) running shoes in size 11. He can normally find them at Explorer at Mall del Rio but they are out of his size. We checked all of the stores at Mall del Rio, Ochoa Sports and FB Marketplace. No luck so far. We’ll mule them in if we have to but I was wondering if any of you had any additional ideas of stores that might carry this item. Thanks,
