These pics are mostly for our Ecuadorian friends who are curious about San Francisco. Our pleasure to share, wish we had more.
In Cuenca, it's less than $5, more like $2-3.
In San Francisco taxis, you can't sit in the front seats. The passenger side is filled with all kinds of high tech equipment.
This is a garlic bagel with smoked salmon, onions, capers and cream cheese.
These are to-go. Crab, shrimp, oysters and clams.
Coffee kiosks for to-go coffee are common in San Francisco, but not in Cuenca. We like coffee from Loja here.
A condo complex. Thst pointy building in the background is the Transamerica building, mostly offices. You can see the overhead wires for the streetcars.
Yes, there is good bread in Cuenca, but nothing like the extra-sour french bread in San Francisco! They say you really need the SF fog to make this good bread...
Much safer sidewalks in San Francisco...nothing to trip over. Cuenca's old sidewalks are being repaired now and looking good.
Another taxi, this time yellow.
In case you're too young to remember the tune, here it is:
The State of California is the equivalent of Azuay, but so much bigger!
A flight from Los Angeles in the southern part of California, to San Francisco in the northern part, takes about an hour.
In contrast, a flight from Quito or Guayaquil to Cuenca takes about a half hour.
We hope you have enjoyed this little tour of our birth City.
We have enjoyed sharing our pictures with you and re-visiting.
