New Japanese Grill and an Old Fashioned Mower

Dear Family and Friends,

Our internet is not working in our apartment. Chuck talked with the internet provider on Firday and they told us they would show up at our place on Saturday morning between 8am and 12am. WE stayed home on Saturday morning and guess what? No one showed and we are still without internet. Tomorrow we will start all over trying to get the service we need. Such is life in Ecuador. We came to town today to use an internet cafe to check on our email and to update the blog.

Last week Chuck read a restaurant review by Sumana on Cuenca Highlife. Chuck and I checked the place out for ourselves last week. The restaurant is a Japanese grill where the food is cooked right in front of you. We had a great meal and plan to frequent this restaurant often. We try to go to our favorite restaurants on a weekly help make sure they stay in business.
Chuck ordered steak and shrimp and I ordered steak only. The steak was very very tender. The flavor was perfection. Chuck´s shrimp were yummy.

Here is Chuck watching the chef prepare our meal.

We went to ex-pat night last Friday. We met new friends and had a wonderful time. As we were going into Zoe´s I looked up the street and thought how often Cuenca reminds me of an old European city....with it´s cobblestone streets and beautiful church spires.

We have a vacant lot near our condo. It is fenced off and the grass inside grows pretty fast and gets pretty tall in no time because of the nice weather here. Every so often we will look in the lot and see a few goats or cows parked there to mow the grass. My last picture from last week is a picture of one of the grass mowers this month. There were two black cows parked in the lot to do their work.

Looking forward to next week. Corpus Christi is being celebrated. This is new holiday for us but we will tell you all about it next week.
Nancy and Chuck
