After walking to town for some errands, we took the taxi back to our neighborhood. We had been admiring some street art from the taxi earlier and wanted to see it all up close. We had the taxi drop us off at the Oro Verde Hotel for a quick cup of coffee, then headed out further west on foot.
It's the Riverside. (on Av Ordonez Lasso, not the river).
It's probably the tallest building in Cuenca at 20 or so stories.
