Celebrations in Cuenca, Ecuador

Dear Family and Friends,

It seems like every year Chuck and I are traveling when this celebration rolls around.  The founding of Cuenca was April 12, 1557 and each year this city celebrates with lots of parades, concerts, art exhibits, fireworks and food.

This year, we are fortunate to be in Cuenca for this celebration.  Since we have missed out the last few years, Chuck and I are taking advantage of as many events as we can fit in.

Here are some pictures of a parade downtown on Friday morning.

Lot of dancing in the street.

Colorful costumes..

Cholas and Senoras were parading..

These guys were not in the parade but they were having a great time.

The weather was nice and sunny....just perfect for a wonderful parade.

So glad we are not missing out this year.

And to add to the mix, today is Palm Sunday.  Lots to see and enjoy!

    1. We have had so many overcast days here the past couple of weeks that the sunshine was really welcomed. We did have a great time Peter.

  2. Those two voluptuous "ladies" remind me of my visit with you and Chuck in Salinas.

    1. Mary, We did have a fun time in Salinas! Seeing the guys "crossed dressing" with balloons always makes me smile.
