The Dangerous Streets Of Cuenca (Sarcasm)

We are having a challenge convincing some important people in our lives to come visit us in Cuenca so Sharon and I created this video of our  barrio (neighborhood).  The video is a little longer than most of the videos I create but I think it’s worth a view because of Sharon’s sense of humor and insight.

The Big Race

At 10:30 this morning I called a taxi for a trip to El Centro. The taxi company told me that they couldn’t get me to El Centro because of the big race.  My guess is that it’s similar to a big city Marathon in North America.  I thought I could catch a bus – No luck.  I walked the 3 miles.  There were large crowds cheering the runners on in two locations. I finally made it to my appointment.  The video below is a 30 second clip of the race.
