Here are a few photographs from the first half of June in Cuenca.
This church stands on the square where the surgeon of the French Geodesic Survey party was killed. The lights to the left of the church are a Belgian restaurant that is popular with expats.
I will be moving, on Monday, 6/17, to an apartment just behind this church.
The interior appointments at one of my favorite Cuencan restaurants, A Pedir de Boca.
The incredible meal I was served at Café Libre, a local vegan restaurant. The pappadam-like wafers are made from tapioca and mushrooms. The things that look like yellow tomatoes are a kind of lemony berry.
Near the beginning of my Mirador walk, where the old town plunges down to the Rio Tomebamba. You can see the church that is my destination on the horizon, between the first and second hills.
I found this guy on one of my walks.
These orange flowers are everywhere.
A typical street in Cuenca.
The Sunrise Cafe
The last pitch on my way up to the Mirador de Turi.
