Always some fun activity at the main Square. We always enjoy sitting and watching.
This huge statue of him is right at the main doors of the Cathedral. He is a favorite of the People. Cuencans are also fond of the current Pope Francis, a South American! Folks are hoping and praying that Pope Francis will visit Cuenca, too, but it may be unlikely as he only has one lung and we are at altitude......but anything is possible. You never know.
So -- to uninformed? bystanders, it looked to us to be total chaos. A huge bike ride, mid morning, down one of the busiest streets on a work day and no traffic control (at least that we could see). Actually, there was ONE guy, not in uniform, trying...
OK, maybe there were other facts in play, maybe we missed something...
So glad no one got killed!
Happy Ecuadorian Labor Day today! A National Holiday today celebrating the Workers.
Schools are closed, a parade or 2...fun day.
