Civil marriage documents

I am wondering if there is anyone who has recently been married here in Cuenca in a civil ceremony. I am getting married in August, and one of the new requirements for extranjeros is a ¨certifcado de soltero¨ or basically, an official document proving I am not married in the States. I honestly have no idea where I would go to get this, but am headed back to the US next week and hoping to retrieve it. Please let me know if you have been in a similar situation or have any ideas for me. Thanks,


Bus card for two?

Simple question (I hope). If we get one red bus card, can we swipe it multiple times for our family, or are they mandating a unique card for everyone? Thx for sharing your experience.

We are hoping you will tell all friends, budding and not so budding artists plus any art classes about this opportunity to show and possibly sell their art work. Any kind of art. Anything goes.

~Piece can be around 12”X12”, including frame.
~$5 submission fee per piece, 2 pieces maximum
~Prices $100 or under, gallery commission is 25%, all work must be for sale
~Any subject (but gallery management has final say about inappropriate subject matter)
~50% discount per ticket for each piece you submit for “An Evening with Luis Ullauri“ (you can purchase your tickets the same day you deliver your work)

Expat Express shipping Julio Calle

Recently I had the unfortunate experience of trusting Julio Calle to deliver items I had purchased from Amazon; items that were supposed to be delivered this past Thursday. I have requested a refund through Paypal for the items that were not delivered since Julio refuses to return calls and messages.

His stateside phone numbers are 001 305 790 9811 and 954 748 3088
I wish you good luck.

Seeking a female poodle puppy under 4 months old

My husband, Don Mackenzie lost his "fur girl" after 16 years of loving companionship; she was 3 when we rescued her. She was an apricot miniature poodle; Don has had many poodles. He wanted a puppy. Little Doxie was a puppy rescue just two weeks ago, but she was too sick to save. If anyone knows of a poodle-type puppy "coming soon" - he is seeking a female - please let us know. We live in Vilcabamba, Loja, Ecuador. We have vet references back two decades.
