Back to sharing pictures.
We walk this path often from San Sabastian to the Square. San Sabastian plaza is where the Museum of Modern Art is located. It's also where the San Sabastian Church is, along with the 'Humiliation Cross' from the old days.
We are stunned (and pleased!) by the speed and size of the roadwork project in this area. Real progress each day.
Walking toward the Square...
We followed the balloon ladies to the Square.
Here are some pics of the participants and the crowd. Lots of school kids.
You can also see the buses for their transportation and musical instruments.
This is the only sign we could find in the crowd besides school signs with the students.
(Translation = 'A way towards the freedom, because now we are part of the society.' With reference that the VP supports its work. We think it's related to Ecuador's VP's program in support of the disabled.)
musicians. It was loud, chaotic and pretty much fun to watch. But, our ears will probably never be the same.
It was LOUD!
You can see more balloons along the parade route.
The construction barricade has been removed so now we can really see the progress. Nice!
When we got home, we heard alot of singing children and looked down from our porch. A neighborhood Halloween party was in full swing.
These are the times we wished we had one of those fancy cameras to really get a good, clear, close-up shot. The children were adorable!
Stay tuned for more pics later. We'll be out and about attending several of the festivities this weekend and throughout next week.
We're excited!! Viva Cuenca!!!
