Doce de Abril is Founding Day in Cuenca. The city was named in 1557 thus making it 455 years old. There are lots of celebrations, parades, fireworks and craft shows. The holiday lasts 4 days and today I walked from home to the Coopera food market (about 3 miles). I always enjoy the buzz of the city but especially today since there were so many people on the street.
I would like to invite some comments and conversation about the first 21 second of the video. There is a local street vendor entertaining the traffic on Doce de Abril y Solano. That is not uncommon but off camera when I gave her a coin I asked the young entertainer her age and she is 8 years old.
