Arrebol Gallery opening

Mariscal Lamar 17-49 y Miguel Heredia, Cuenca, Ecuador
Reopening of the Arrebol Gallery
Monday, November 1, 2021 from 5 to 8 PM.

Showing the works of the Ecuadorian artist Rodrigo Jara Rodas, who has an extensive and continuous pictorial career since the 1980s. His laborious technique can be described as “The reaction of acid applied over metal.” Unlike most artists, R. Jara doesn’t use canvases or wood as the base of his designs. Jara works over large plates of copper, yellow metal, zinc, and other similar surfaces. The final colors are the result of years of sometimes dangerous but always fascinating experimentation. His palette and compositions are elegant, controlled, and memorable. You will enjoy these unusual pieces.

Bespoke shoemaker

Am looking for a recommendation for someone who can competently make (large-size) shoes or boots to order, perhaps in Gualaceo.

Such a person might be a very viable alternative to ordering shoes from the US. Anyone have any names?

I have seen posts online saying that in Gualaceo you can ask around if you want larger shoes made-to-measure, and of course I could do that, which could be time-consuming, but I am really looking for a specific suggestion.

(A shoe repairer in Santa Elena volunteered to make a pair of sandals for me with disastrous results, so I am looking for someone with demonstrated competency in making proper shoes, not just a general familiarity with footwear!)

Looking for a second-hand cell phone

Dear GP Community,

A former student of mine from the Achuar indigenous community is now in Quito and is training to be a nun. She would like to keep in touch with the outside world and learn English, too. If you have a cell phone that you would be prepared to donate to her, I could get it to her. If you have one for sale, I would consider buying it for her, too. Basic smart phone functions would be sufficient, she can buy her own SIM card and use the phone on a pay-as-you-go basis.

Thank you,

Looking for best locations for salivary PCR test for covid

I am looking for the best locations to receive the PCR saliva test for covid here in Cuenca. A low price is always welcome but reliability of the lab and quick turnaround on test results is also important.

Rain, rain, rain

Everyone talks about how amazing Cuenca is. I’ve been watching the weather reports from abroad. I think there was one sunny day in all the instances I checked over the few months and the rest: rain, rain, rain. Is living in Seattle-like gloom really eternal spring weather?
