Random photos of Cuenca and surrounding areas. These were all taken within the last two months of July and August.   Double click on the photos to enlarge.

Three nights ago there was a fire in the historic area of Cuenca. Apparently some fireworks landing on the roof of this building. See center of photo.

 Who said you can only get small size shoes in Ecuador?
That's Frank's shoe next to the big shoe. Actually this tennis shoe was on display as a novelty item in a retail shoe store in Cuenca.

Rickety bridge in Cuenca - it's scary, the boards move when a car drives on it, we walked across it and there is large holes in the boards. Last time we checked they were fixing this bridge. Good!

I wonder how many animals have made this tree their home?

  1. It would be good to know about the country club, and any gyms as well. Without a way to exercise and hit the sauna, life would be pretty rough. Do you know what it costs to join the country club? Thanks.

  2. Keep up the good work. I would love to have lunch with you in july when I will be back to cuenca. I live in lasvegas now.grantgresser@yahoo.com
