As we gear up for Cuenca's Independence Day 3 Nov, we've been out and about busy exploring some of the arts/crafts around town. Lots more exploring to still do, too.
Audrey (Chuck's sister) and Jim joined us at the look/see/buy! Here are some pictures. Lots to choose from. We liked many with an Ecuadorian theme.
The very cute vendor next to him is from Otavalo.
Here's Nancy tryng to decide on a wrap... maybe a purchase later.
Craft fairs have a party atmosphere. A very cute doggie all dressed up for the fun.
Several vendors were crafting at the fair. These weaving hombres are from Peru. We also saw some knitters and crocheters and jewelry crafters.
Couldn't resist taking this adorable picture! Her face painting was precious!
Always fun to run into friends on the street, too. Here's Randy headed to the broken bridge fair.
We're looking forward to seeing more art/crafts later today and throughout the week of celebration.
This morning the church bells rang much more than usual. It's All Soul's Day.
We'll report more later.
