Cuenca

Cuenca is an exceedingly comfortable city in southern Ecuador. After spending a few weeks with the predominantly indigenous populations of the central part of the country we immediately notices a difference when we arrived. People were taller, had lighter skin, and dressed in western clothing.

We met up with our friend Elliot and Stephanie who graciously hosted us at their home. We had met them in Jordan roughly four years earlier. They have since retired, at a very young age, and settled here. We spent a lovely few days playing trivia, watching movies, catching up, and exploring the beautiful city.
