GP or obstetrician in Cuenca

Dear Friends,

My husband and I just discovered we are expecting a baby. We are here in Cuenca for another 2 months. In Australia they suggest you see a GP and do a blood work. I'm not sure how it works here.

I would really appreciate any help and recommendations.



Getting smells out of a leather chair

The headrest of one of my leather recliners has an obnoxious odor, possibly from men's hair products. I've looked up how to eliminate the smell, but wiping with Febreze hasn't worked and it's too heavy and bulky for me to move it out into the sun (if we had enough reliable sun) after spraying it with vinegar. Does anyone have good experiences with businesses in Cuenca that could take care of the smell? Thanks.

Help a mom to access dialysis by leaving Venezuela

My name is Karla Sanchez. I'm a 23-year-old journalist from Venezuela living in Cuenca, Ecuador. My mother Romelia Arismendi (a 50-year-old, lawyer) had a kidney transplant in 2000. She was doing OK for close to 17 years but due to the lack of medicine in the country, she came back to dialysis treatment. However, due to Venezuelan situation, the patients who depend on these treatments to live have a “death sentence" because there's no medical materials or medicines to fulfill the treatment. I want to bring my mother to Ecuador and sign her to the social security but in order to do that there's a period of time to get the visa and all the documentation. Meanwhile, she needs to be in a private Dialysis Center, three days a week. This costs $89 per day. So I write to require help from you to cover these expenses.

Cuenca University Symphony Orchestra

Thursday, April 26
Museum of the Old Cathedral of Cuenca
8 PM
Free entry

The Symphony Orchestra of the University of Cuenca presents its VI concert of the 2018 season as a tribute to the 461 years of the Spanish foundation of Cuenca, this time with a monographic concert that includes the premiere of three works by Cuenca composers who with their mastery and tenacious work continue to enlarge the local and national pentagram.

The works of the masters Carlos Hernandez, Rafael Saula and Luis Torre Gómez will be part of this concert that, besides paying tribute to the city, fulfills the tasks of dissemination, promotion and support to our present musical heritage and that promote the creation musical in our city.

The suggestive titles of the works are related to the personal vision of each composer with respect to this patrimonial environment called Santa Ana of the Four Rivers of Cuenca, so that the work of Carlos Hernandez under the title of symphonic suite speaks of the great plain such as the sky (Guapondelig), the knives valley (Tomebamba), the puma gate (Pumapungo) and the cañari conquest (Yupanqui), while the work of Rafael Saula aims to describe the traditional septenary festival through symphonic variations on rhythms vernacular tours from Friday to Wednesday through the use of rhythms such as typical air, albazo, sanjuanito, etc. The last work composed of three parts has the title of symphony N1 and is dedicated to Father José Castellvi Queralt mentor of many local composers and manager of the most emblematic musical projects of the city.
April 26, from 8 PM to 9:30 PM, free, Mariscal Sucre, Cuenca, Ecuador, Cuenca.

Looking for a working lawnmower

Do you have a functioning lawnmower you no longer need? Or do you know of someone or a business I can buy a used one from? It doesn't have to be anything special, even a manual push mower will do! I have a small backyard lawn that cutting it with a weed wacker is becoming quite the chore. If you are able to help me locate a working lawnmower I can purchase, me and my aching back will be most appreciative. Thanks.
