Ultrasound examination costs

Does anyone know what an ultrasound examination costs in Cuenca's private hospital? (Please include the name of the hospital in your answer.)

And the waiting time; Public hospitals need to wait two months.

Thank you very much.

Book study

The Cuenca Shambhala Meditation Group will be continuing their book study meetings on Thursdays. Everyone is welcome to participate.

The book that will be discussed starting Thursday, November 30, will be “Art of War” by Sun Tzu. At the core of this ancient strategy manual is the understanding that conflict is an inescapable part of human life. Since, as Sun Tzu teaches, aggression and response in kind can lead only to destruction, we must learn to work with conflict in a more profound and effective way. In this new translation, the Denma Translation Group carefully preserves the quality of the original – allowing us to discover insights in its lines millennia after this oral tradition was first set down.

Copies of the book will be available for a nominal fee. Please respond to the email below if you would like a copy of this book.

November 30th from 3:30 – 5 PM, no cost, Windhorse Cafe on Calle Larga y Hermano Miguel, Cuenca.

Nature's Way supplements in Quito or Cuenca?

I live in Quito and cannot find a supplement source anywhere including the malls here where Nature's Way products are available -- or comparable quality. I have lived here several years and these shops come and go and often have poor quality products.

Does anyone know a place they can recommend in either city?
