Monday, 10/18/10-Tuesday, 10/19/10. A wonderful thing happened yesterday. My friends, Judy and Kurt, asked me if I wanted to go to Cuenca with them. At first, I regrettably answered no. I really wanted to see Cuenca while I was here in Ecuador, but it is way down south and I was planning to head north. However, when they suggested I go spend the weekend in Cuenca and fly up to Quito on Sunday, I said, “What the hey! Sounds like a plan to me.” So, we are off tomorrow, Wednesday. We will take that long bus ride back down to Guayaquil (same way I came up here) then change buses for another 3 hour ride into Cuenca. I’m very excited to be able to go and more excited to be leaving Bahia. It was interesting being here and I met some wonderful people, but this town is just not my cup of tea. I did learn a lesson and that is I will not commit to a month somewhere before I have actually seen the place. I hope to be able to post while I am in Cuenca because there is so much to see and do. It is the Ecuadorian expat capital for gringos from the US so there has got to be a reason for that. Well see!
