September/October Walking -- Cuenca

We are still walking Cuenca!  There is always something to entertain us during our walks.

The car dealership looks close to opening.  (This is built on the same lot where the llamas used to live....progress, good and bad.)

Lovely pink trees are in bloom! 

They are called arupo here (crape myrtles), favorites of ours.

The New Cathedral doors got a Spring cleaning.


The old Miso restaurant is now done and open as a coffee shop, we think.  We haven't been in to check it out yet.

An old beauty downtown got a new paint job!
Another fun wall painting.
The peaceful Yunancay river. 
Happy Weekend!

September Walking -- Quito

We've been walking in both Quito and are the Quito shots.

We were in Quito to see some friends off as they returned to the US.  We had a lovely time seeing more of the City, too.

Here are some street scenes:

A protest outside the Presidential Palace.

On the way to San Francisco Square.

Beautiful old buildings in the historic area.

Street scenes in a more modern área of Quito.
Good food in Quito!  (Tuna in the Andes!)

Beautiful roses.
