Looking for better pricing for eyeglasses

We went to an optics company yesterday and were quoted $250 for one set of progressive/transitional lenses (frames were an additional $125-$280). This seemed overly expensive to us, though we’ve been used to getting inexpensive eyeglasses from Zenni when living in the States.

Does anyone have experience getting progressive/transitional eyeglasses in Cuenca that are less expensive than what we were quoted?

Double your donation for the dogs of Cuenca!

A generous and anonymous donor will match every donation received to purchase the land for FAAN’s (Familia Amor Animal Foundation) permanent dog shelter through March 15, 2023.

The $20,000 grant provides an opportunity for the animal welfare group to raise $40,000 so they can move the 140 dogs in our care to a safe sanctuary sooner rather than later.

This means $25 becomes $50, your gift of $100 will become $200 and a generous gift of $1,000 becomes $2,000.

FAAN is dedicated to creating a sustainable and community-based shelter and continuing with their mission to educate, spay/neuter and facilitate a community where all animals are respected and cared for by the collective community.

Join our Donor and Volunteer Team and learn about the project and our work at FAANEcuador.org.

Since I know that sharing negative info publicly is an issue, please email me with anything you do not feel comfortable sharing here: pthjm1ck46xp@opayq [dot] com
We will not share anything we received in private. This is for us to do our best in determining the best course of action and, specially, the pitfalls to avoid.

Waterproofing raincoat

I have a raincoat that has started leaking. Does anyone know where I can get it waterproofed here. My landlord operates a laundry and they were not aware that waterproofing could be done. They checked with the dry cleaner that they use and they could not help. Please post your answer here.

Looking for a large food processor

Does anyone here in Cuenca have a large food processor that they don’t use? The brand doesn’t really matter as long as it’s in good shape, but it does need to be a 12 cup or more. Before we get one from the States, we thought we would check here… you never know and we have been very lucky getting what we need from our friends right here.

Thanks so much!

A local media company needs a few actors for shooting a commercial. Must be an English Speaker. No one needs to win an Oscar, just be yourself and each part has very few lines so a nice way for a novice to dip their toe in and get some free coffee and dessert while trying out.

We have the following roles –

60s-80s Man
Has a few lines regarding how when he was younger he parachuted.

60s-80s woman –
Has to be able to spin around half way at the end of saying how she was a dancer in her youth.

With the new Latam 6 AM direct flight from CUE to MIA, I am hoping to find a reliable driver or service for a pick up in the Cuenca area around 4:30 AM.
