This Parade goes on for hours...the planning and organization must be tremendous. To the uneducated eye, this year's Parade went off seamlessly, as they always seem to. Congratulations, Cuenca!
Taking a break in the shade.
Right down Av Solano.
Last minute instructions for the drummers.
The skies are so beautiful, we are planning on washing the windows soon. Can you imagine even thinking of washing windows in December?!? No snow here!
We're sure we'll have more pictures of the Season later, so stay tuned.

The museum occupies a small portion of the block-size building. The rest of the property is still home to cloistered nuns and not open to the public.
There is a modest entrance fee for the museum. We mention this, in case you want to check it out. Not free like most museums in Cuenca, but still a bargain! -- about $3
The day we were there, photos were allowed of the inside, but no flash. We did our best. But, no comparison to seeing the art ín person'! Also, the printed info at the exhibits is in Spanish, English and French now.
For a previous visit and more info, see
One of Nancy's favorites...lady and her sheep.
A simple bedroom.
About 30 pieces, originally from Italy, 19th century.
We both wish a Very, Merry Christmas to You and Yours! May your Season be filled with Peace, Joy and Love.
Happy Solstice, too!
