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.
Searching back into the CTL archives I found a video I shot 5 years ago when Sharon and I lived on Primero de Mayo. Some of the sites are no longer there and some condos weren’t finished yet. Enjoy.
The problem with having 5 years of posts is that the reader rarely finds posts that are more than a couple of months old.
Cuenca is famous for their very talented street artists. Some would argue that it is just glorified graffiti. I think that a lot of the street art could be easily transferred to a commercial mural.
You be the judge. This video was shot 3 years ago.
Last year at this time I created a map on Free Wifi in Cuenca. GringoTree just published their own article about areas in the city where you can receive free Wifi offered by the City Of Cuenca.
I have duplicated last year’s map with some additions. Feelfree to make comments on your favorite wifi places and I will add them to the map.
This past week I had the gastronomic pleasure of eating at Le Triskell, creperie, francaise, located at Eduardo Crespo Mala and Gran Colombia. They are open everyday except Monday.
I had their breakfast special for $6
Coffee or tea + juice
-French Omelet with bacon or vegetables
-Butter and marmalade
The food was presented beautifully, the owners came out to check on the service and quality of food. Run, don’t walk to this great find in Cuenca.
Just about every photo I snap on my smartphone I also edit on Prisma These shots quickly become art photos. Below is my current favorite followed by a short youtube video.
