I go back to April 2015 to find this video of the Streets Of Cuenca. Enjoy!
Drop by Restaurante Santa Canela (Calle Larga 3-82) this Saturday (April 15th) for a great barbecue and listen to Rafa, an Argentinian guitar player dazzle the audience

In Gualaceo, an hour’s bus ride from Cuenca lies the home of Ecuagenera, the home of over 6000 varieties of Orchids. You can take a tour of the facility for $3 per person and see how the orchids are developed and sold.
This was my second visit and was well worth the trip. Run, don’t walk to Ecuagenera
It’s hard for even a geek to wrap his head around these numbers but here are just a few
- 29 million whats app messages
- 66 thousand images uploaded on Instagram
- 3.3 million facebook posts
- 3.8 million google searches
- 500 hours of video uploaded to Youtube
Here is the website (updating numbers website I retrieved the information
Most new viewers to CTL usually just view a couple of posts and very rarely browse entries more than a year old. Flashback Friday is my attempt to bring life to old posts.
One of the appealing qualities of Cuenca is the hard working entrepreneurs who work very long hours selling fruit or manning Mom/Pop tiendas. Below is a two year old video that also shows some of my favorite sites of Cuenca.
I purchased my first computer 37 years ago. I sold my Honda Motorcycle and used the profit to buy an Apple II Computer with an RF modulator to connect to my TV and the computer had two floppy disk drives with a grand total of storage of 1/4 of a megabyte or 1/4000th of a gigabyte. My first hard drive was a 10 mb hard disk purchased for what seemed like a King’s Ransom.
Today I saw a 2 Terabyte hard disk selling on Amazon for $70. My guess is that we will see hard disk storage below one cent in less than 2 years. For me it’s not an issue. My Macbook Pro has 256 gb solid state drive. After 5 years I still have half the drive free because all my photos and videos are stored in the cloud.
What is your prediction of disk storage?
Sometimes moving to a new country means giving up some favorites foods from your country of origin.
Yesterday, I had the best sourdough bread and cream cheese I have tasted in Ecuador. Tomorrow you can taste it too.
Join us to taste the best bread, smoked salmon and organic cream cheese with Chives. Greek Yogurt, Jellies, gluten free granola and cakes as well as fresh salmon and trout will be available for purchase.
