How to Find Rental in the ‘burbs?

Reading the report of hte concerns being expressed regarding the number of English speaking Expats in Cuenca I noticed an issue was that we “live in el Centro, or a 15 min, drive of it”. Well, I’d love to rent further out, where it’s quieter and there are trees and birds. I’m not a city gal – never have been. But from all I can gather, finding further out rentals is all but impossible.
If there’s anyone who can suggest how one finds places further out- I’d love to hear from you.

Shipping Pets By Air Cargo?

I am getting ready to go back to the states to get my cat and dog. As I plan it the expense keeps getting higher. Of course they are worth it. But I was wondering if anyone has any current information about shipping pet by air cargo. Everything I read is at least four year old. My biggest concern if the delay they have to endure once they arrive. They would be flying from New York to Guayaquil on LAN.
Thanks for your info.

Andres Figueroa – Veterinarian

I recently picked up a very sick pup on the street and carried him to the nearest vet. What a blessing that vet turned out to be, so caring and compassionate. The little pup spent 8 days in his care and I am very grateful to say the pup is almost back to normal. He had been beaten, was blind and barely able to walk. Andres speaks some English, I speak almost no Spanish and we were able to communicate just fine. Your pets would be in very good hands with him and his prices are very reasonable. A visit is $10.00.
His office is located not far from the traffic circles on Doce de Octubre.
