A Tour of My Neighborhood
As you already know, life is much different here in Cuenca, Ecuador. My days are generally simple. I have chosen to live my new life just outside of El Central away from the hustle and bustle of city life. My apartment is just on the outskirts of “El Campo,” the country. I love it here!
From where I am it is about a 2 mile walk to the center of the city. Barkley and I can walk along the Rio Tomebamba river right into town.
There is a Tienda and a Panaderia (bakery) just down the street where I can pick up the cream for my coffee and fresh croissants.
I do have a Tienda next door, but she doesn’t carry much. But, she does have pigs!!
The view from my living room window changes daily. On many occasions there are cows and sheep grazing.
Just down the dirt road to the west of me is another of Barkley and my walks. Much to see on this adventure.
We have an ice cream man who will serve you a scoop if you are on your way to the park.
There is a little nursery where I buy my $3.50 plants for house decorations.
Then there is the Christmas parade that went by my front door a few days ago…what a sight.
I have a lady that stops by to sell me bread…a pack of 5 for a $1.
As you can see, it is so very different from my home in Lakewood, Colorado. What an adventure!!
