Hola, Todos –

Pagina cultural –

Finished event –

Ciclo de Cine Coreano Contemporáneo (Contemporary Korean Filmchl jeanne logo Series) – There were two films Sunday – Bienvenidos a Donmakgol and “Ebrio de Mujeres y Pintura.”

Articles about –

A new space for ancestral knowledge – It will be in the Museo Manuel Agustín Landívar which will be converted into a living museum.  The museum includes the ruins of Todos Santos which was built on by the Cañaris, then the Incas and last the Spanish. (Good thing they declared it a museum because the next builder would have been a condo developer.)  This CCE project will be launched on 20/6, the summer solstice, with a greeting to the sun at 6:30, a pampa mesa or Andean lunch where the public is invited to bring something to share, various artistic activities and an Andean ceremony honoring the sun with mama Rosa Cabrero at 16:30.  A store will be opened so that producers of medical plants and rural artesans can offer their products.  As well as a space for medicinal plants, there will be activities coordinated between the CCE, Museo de Pumapungo and the Ministerio de Salud Pública.

Día Internacional de Yoga – was celebrated today at the Puente Roto starting at 8:00. (People who do yoga must be those of the “early to bed, early to rise” persuasion.)

I Festival de Artes Escénicas de Género “Arte por la Diversidad” (1st Scenic Arts of Gender Festival “Art for Diversity”) – The festival will run from 20/6 to 1/7.  (I think the 20th might be a typo.)
Tues – 28/6 at 20:00 – “Un hombre muerto a puntapiés”
Wed – 29/6 at 20:00 – “Terapia”
Thu – 30/6 – “La Venadita”
Fri – 1/7 – “Julieta y Julieta”
All shows at the Teatro Sucre (and if you want to know the time of the last two, try Googling it for yourself.)

Jorge Luis Borges – The author was remembered and honored in his native city of Buenos Aires on the 30th anniversary of his death.

Casa abierta (Open house – your word for the day because maybe you’ll want to host one of your own some day and you can either impress, aggravate, or confuse your friends by inviting them in Spanish.) – The Universidad Politécnica Salesiana had an intercultural open house.

Otras cosas –  
Titular – Los Padres dan bríos y enseñan el camino (Fathers give you your start and show you the way)  (Or not, depending on your particular father.)

Quickie divorce – The new Códico Orgánico General de Procesos (Organic General Code on Processes) allows for divorces by mutual agreement in 10 days rather than the 4 months it used to take.   The couple has to agree on alimony, custody of children and visitation rights, the judge issues a verbal judgement (and you’re not married anymore).

Titular from Sabado – Buscan reducir contaminación (Looking to reduce pollution) – An automotive research and development center at the U of Azuay presented a report to EMOV and the Cámara de Transportes de Cuenca that the buses are calibrated for sea level and that is the main reason for the visible exhaust. The changes would include recalibrating the fuel pump and changing the turbocompressor to increase air pressure in the fuel feed system. (At least I think that’s what they said.)  That would decrease the visible exhaust by 30-40%.  Some buses, however are just too old, and need to be replaced.  (I guess buses, like people, get gassier and smellier when they get old.  Or maybe I should just change my diet.)

Discuentos y compras –
