CD renewal question

Does anyone know the amount of deposit needed to update the investment status after the implementation of the new law?

I heard two answers. Someone said it was $25,000, others said it was $27,020.
Has anyone handled it recently?

Where to get the new bus card recharged?

I have my new bus card but does anyone know where I can get it recharged? I asked at ETAPA today and if I understood correctly the only place to get money added to the card are the few places where the cards are sold which have very long lines at the moment (Feria Libre, the Terminal, ETAPA, and a couple of Farmasol stores). I haven't seen any of the guys who get on the bus with little portable machines.

Looking for 3 bedroom house for long-term rental

Looking for 3 bedroom unfurnished house for long-term rental in Cuenca, $300-$500, Must allow pets.

Hello Cuenca: We need some help. Owners and agents, please send us your property information. I need to use an electric wheelchair now. It arrives in a month. It is important for me to have single floor living. My husband and I prefer a house with a ground floor entry, bedroom, full bathroom, laundry room, Kitchen, dining room and living room. Any other bedrooms can be upstairs. For the chair we need wide access doorways. (36 inches is best and 32 will just make it= 92 cm). We would like a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom house but are open to other options as well. We may need to modify the existing property. If no houses are available, we could also consider an apartment or condo with an elevator that is handicap friendly. We have a 4 lb. (2 Kilo) Yorkie (dog). Anyone who can help us with our new situation please email or call us.

Thank you for your help,

Still searching for stereo or PA speakers

Hello, this is Jerry again. I am looking for stereo or PA speakers. The last ones I used with my Yamaha tuner/amp were PA speakers and they worked great. If You know of available speakers please let me know. I have searched all consignment stores (not good), Prosonida, etc. I guess I am looking for a previously owned pair to keep the cost down.

Thanks for the help.
