Panama hat

A travel blog entry by lucywillson


By 8.10 we were on the bus to Cuenca. The scenery on the way was as spectacular as ever and we arrived between 12 and 12.30. Dave had a snooze once we got to our hostel but I went out to the launderette to get some washing done... as soon as I arrived at the main square I noticed that a parade was going on with soldiers in ceremonial white and either black or navy blue uniforms. They were raising and occasionally twirling batons and some trumpeters played ...

My Last-Minute Weekend Getaway to Cuenca

A travel blog entry by lara.franko


... After the tour we had lunch at a delightful crÍperie before heading to the Pumapungo ethnographic museum where we saw life-size dioramas of all of the different Ecuadorian ethnic populations. That evening we went to a Mexican restaurant where we watched the Ecuador vs. Argentina exhibition game and ate some dinner. We went to sleep early because we had a tour planned for the next day at 8am.
