Cuenca - it’s like the good ol’ days of the 1950’s

Hola from my little town (400,000 people), high in the Andes (8,200 feet), of a Third World Country (Ecuador, South America).

I’ve heard it said many, many times over the 4+ years I’ve lived here, that living in Cuenca, Ecuador (South America) is like living in the 1950’s.  Why?

Is it because we don’t have internet?  No cell phones?  We watch TV in negro y blanco?  We drive 1958 Chevy Station Wagons?  

Mom/Dad actually had one of these, same color config, too.

Getting closer to moving day!

We are less than a week away from our move date and 95% of our "things" are packed. Sort of organized chaos!

Corpus Christi Celebration in Cuenca

Corpus Christi is the body of Christ and it is a week long celebration here in Cuenca. Sweet treats, parades, sweets, dancers, fireworks and oh, did I mention, sweets? Due to our busy schedule and recent recovery from colds, we opted out of visiting the huge crowds but many of our friends attended.

Check out one friend's blog - lots of photos! I think you will enjoy it!

Ciao for now!

Moving on....

Well, sort of. As much as we love our current apartment (and our neverending views), we ran across another very nice but smaller (and cheaper) brand new (never lived in) apartment in our old neighborhood.

Since our lease is up the end of this month, we figured we had nothing to lose by looking at it. Well, we rented it and the next three weeks are going to be hectic. Packing, moving, showing our current apartment, selling furniture that won't fit in the new place.

Eeek!! Glad we only have two more weeks of Spanish classes!

Here are some photos from the original ad:

We still get a kitchen peninsula. The laundry room is the paneled door on the right. 
Dining room to the left and the 2nd bath. Long living room.
Brand new and BOTH showers are big! Stu is happy. 
Master bedroom - going back to queen bed (already sold our king size)
YES! We have our own balcony. So excited!!
We are heading to the apartment today for floor planning measurements. Some of our furniture will need to be sold, just need to figure out what!

We are two blocks from the Yanuncay river and still a little over a mile from Popacuchu, one of our favorite places to eat. I'll be close enough to walk to Romy's, my mani-pedi spot and Stu can ride his bicycle on the river trail.

Ahhh, life is good...just don't be surprised if we're not posting much until July!

Ciao for now!
