Trip to Azogues
(One of the high points of the visit was making friends with this beautiful Mom and family.)
Cows, of all colors and sizes, pigs, goats, sheep, donkeys, but we didn't see any llamas like we did at the animal market in Cuenca. A large food area, too.
For pictures and stories of the animal market right on the edge of Cuenca, you can go back in our blog here:
(We have so many pics of the Azogues market, we'll post more in a separate blog entry.)
The town itself seems more prosperous than other small towns we've visited. A few older adobes in need of care, but most buildings are more modern and in pretty good shape, at least they looked that way from the outside.
We enjoyed traditional music in the market and out on the streets, too.
The town still seemed quieter than Cuenca...even with about 25-35,000 residents.
Another slice of life. We'll be back.
