On November 3, Cuenca marked the 195th anniversary of Independence from Spain.
Each year, members of the military begin the day at the Square, this year with President Correa and other dignitaries.
No big military parade this year, due to budget constraints. Interesting we did not see nor hear one firework on the evening of Nov 3 this year...
Ruth Guzman has the voice of an angel. Not a dry eye in the house.
Thanks again to our hosts for including us in this memorable holiday.
