Excellent real estate agent

I highly recommend Carla Encarnación as a realtor in Cuenca. I have known lots of realtors, and none had more integrity than Carla. She was patient, accommodating, and advocated for us with apartment owners. After we chose an apartment she gave us a lease contract in Spanish and English, and had the Spanish version notarized so that it is enforceable. After the sale she let us in the apartment early to take measurements and photos and start moving things in. She arranged a walk-through with the architect to explain things. She is looking into what we need to do to switch our water, electric, and gas. Contact info: CLEGSA Real Estate (office in the Hotel Oro Verde). Telef. 093 905 5399. Email cleg_2102@hotmail.com.

Bone-ito Organic Bone Broth at The Vegetable Bar Artesan Bazaar!

Event date: Mar. Saturday 25

Join us and 11 of other artesan vendors this Saturday 25th of March from 9am to 1pm at The Vegetable Bar located at Jacaranda y Paseo 3 de Noviembre (puertas del Sol)
We will be selling and sampling our tasty and healthy organic bone broth.
All of our broth is made from the bones and marrow of the locally-sourced, organically-raised and grass-fed beef cows from my friend Jungle Dave’s Hollywood Farms. Delicious beef bone broth has been consumed for centuries for its flavor and myriad health benefits, which include gut and joint health and repair, skin, hair and nail health, sleep and memory improvement, immune system support, bone reinforcement and for its energy boosting properties. In addition to its health benefits, Bone-ito beef bone broth makes a tasty and hearty stock for soups, stews and chili, as a substitute for water when preparing rice and vegetables or as a stand-alone hot beverage that I often substitute for coffee or tea.
We will be featuring our eggrolls, homemade Japanese Dunmplings (Gyoza) and sweets from Hart’s desire like keylime cups, little Debbie’s and our heavenly Cinnamon Rolls.
For more information about our products and advance order please call 096-951-7977 or email us at boneitocuenca@gmail.com
