But things are looking better. There was even a little parade when I was there Sunday.
Looking better mostly, though I am completely baffled that on the ramps and walkways up there they’ve used the same cheap wooden planking that has gone into various bridge decks and miradors around town, and which will last about two or three years before it starts warping and breaking down. Go figure.

I am Dra. Daniela Carpio —a Cardiologist based out of Cuenca with a specialty in Cardiac Intensive Care. Upon my recent return from completing my studies abroad, I opened my medical practice at Hospital del Rio, and it would be an honor to serve you there.
I completed my 5-year postgraduate education at the Instituto Dante Pazzanese de Cardiología in Sao Paulo, Brazil; a world class institution comprised of highly skilled physicians in the field. I am thrilled to me back in my hometown, with my family, and I look forward to serving my community and also bring expert medical care to the comfort of your own home, if needed.

A few words for Richard’s Memory:
“It will always be difficult to understand that death is part of life, but the most important thing is to recognize that good memories, lived experiences are what will remain in each of us. Richard was and will continue to be my great friend, a person who trusted in me and my family. I feel grateful to God for putting people with such warmth and with such a noble heart, I owe him my work and a network of friends that I consider as part of my family. Richard is an example of kindness, charisma and empathy, it is incredible how his solidarity spread and managed to help so many people who need support and a helping hand. I am sure that now he will be an angel who will be there from heaven to take care of us and protect us all. Thank you Richard for these years of friendship, always in my heart with total gratitude and affection.
Thank you for these years of friendship, you will be always my angel and I will keep you in my heart with total gratitude and affection for ever”.
We are having a memorial this Sunday, September 4th at 11:30 AM at the Campo Santa Ana, Sala Esperanza.
Everyone is welcome to join us.
Richard was born in 1953 in Wisconsin, USA.

One reason I subscribed here is because I want to read the comments under some posts. After I subscribed I found I still can’t see the comments. Could anyone tell me why?
I am planning an exploratory visit to Banos in November to see if that would be a good area to call home when I leave the US next year. This will be my 5th visit to Ecuador, but the first time in this region. Any information / suggestions / experiences / warnings, etc., would be greatly appreciated. I understand that everyone has a different perspective, but I would like to hear them all. I have researched the main tourist attractions , so what I would like to know is:
Hi, It has been more than five years since I have made the trip to Azogues for a visa related matter. Can someone who has made the trip recently by bus give me the name of the bus cooperative, the fare, and any suggestions?

Can someone help me understand why Claro is asking for payment tomorrow when my plan doesn’t end until the 23rd of August? Also, a few days ago, with the help of my English speaking taxi driver, I added $10 to increase international minutes, but instead they may have upgraded my plan, but not sure. Any help or advice is appreciated. Or did they restart my plan since it shows 50 minutes again for international calls.
Good morning GringoPost viewers, I am seriously considering leaving Ecuador when my CD expires. I have had a permanent / indefinite resident visa secured by my CD for seven years.
Has anyone first hand or known an expat that has not renewed their CD attached to their investment visa… had their investment returned to their Ecuadorian bank… successfully had their funds returned to their home country via SWIFT from their Ecuadorian bank?
My family and I wish to thank Orlando Sigüenza for all of his hard work. Orlando is an amazing guide who worked very hard to provide our family with an experience of a lifetime while we were visiting the Cuenca area recently. He not only took us on tours, but really taught us Ecuadorian culture and history, not to mention a few needed Spanish lessons. He went above and beyond to ensure our trip was exactly what we wanted it to be. His connections throughout the area, showed us how well trusted and respect he is in the community.
