Walking Pictures, Part 1
This week's walking pictures are for the Watsons. We want to keep them 'in the loop' so they won't feel they are missing out while traveling.
For those readers who are new to our blog, be sure to check out the Watson's blog...today they are in Cuenca, Spain!
Lots of similarities to Cuenca, Ecuador.
We'll do these pics of our Cuenca in 2 parts.
We love all the balconies in the historic area.
This balcony is complete with flowers.
Lots of repeating patterns.
Road construction all over town!
This project is on Calle Larga.
(Maybe we should start calling this road construction the 'new underpass'...the 'round-about' is being replaced with this massive roadway.)
Moving the beams into place.
Neighborhood is noisy with all the heavy equipment.
Could have been related to this 24/7 operation.
The back up generator in our building kicked in, but the neighborhood buildings without back-up stayed dark for about 2 hours. We could see candles and flashlights in nearby houses and apt buildings during the outage.
There was still loud music and singing in the neighborhood, despite the dark.
Part 2 is next...
