LaGuarida: First Artisans’ Fair – Feria Artesanal

La Guarida’s best translation  to English is a ‘Cave’ but I think this place reminds me of a Greenwich Village Cafe. This is Cuenca’s best kept secret. You have to visit this place to see the wonderful attention to detail and to chat with Andres, the creator of La Guarida.

14 Vendors will be there from 10:00 – 2:00 pm  this Saturday September 16th displaying their wares and having tastings.

Of course I will have my salmon and other fine fish products.

  • 14 portions of salmon for the price of 12
  • $22 a kg on large fillets
  • $6.50 Rainbow Trout Fillet
  • $8 a lb of cleaned and deveined Shrimp
  • $13 for 5 med.-large Tilapia Fillets

Will You Pay $1000 For Your Next Smartphone?

The Samsung Note 8 unlocked base price is $$940 and the rumored price for the iPhone 8 is $1000. Some of the readers of this blog will be purchasing their new iPhone with a Carrier’s subsidy when they renew their cellular plan. I have a cellular plan through Claro but only pay 1/4 of what I would in the U.S.

There is a great article about the $1000 Smartphone here.

 

I think I will be holding on to my 3 year old Nexus Smartphone another year.

  • Paiche 2-3 times a month

I don’t feel tired, my cholesterol is down and the Omega 3’s are good for my heart
