Cuenca: September 20, 2018

What caught my eye about this building was the face of a cat painted on one of the gates. The figure standing in front of the umural of a woman is a female cop who hat stepped out of the station, which is just to the left of my photo, to use her cell phone. I know, such an eye catching building, and I only notice the cat.

I have no idea what they are, but they are lovely, except I think they may be killing the tree they are on.

The areas alongside the river are kept up as a public garden.

Even the public parking is lovely.

Though I am not really into selfies; I accidentally hit the rotate camera button on my phone. When I saw how happy I looked I had to take the photo.

I think this is an aloe vera?

Finally, I found the area of the old city where the bike lanes are. Now if I could just find a bike to rent!

This column is a utility pole; a perfect place for small graffiti.

My phone has surprisingly good digital zoom.

Unfortunately most of the official murals have been defaced. The notable exceptions are the ones near police stations.

This one looks as if were drawn with a Sharpie.

As I walked past this viaduct, i couldn’t help but be reminded of Segovia.

LLama!

On my return trip alongside the river, I realized that the viaduct simply stopped without crossing the river. I wonder what happened to it? Next time I go that way, I will find a way up and see what the view is like.

Cuenca is so high, the Andes look like foothills.

I waited for this woman to get into position to take the photo. I thought her red backpack added something to the scene.

The only bad thing about going to the river, is the climb back up.

The decoration along the walls are mosaics.

A beautiful day in the Andes.

I love the murals around town.

This little square is a block from my place. I took is photo, then realizing I had a car in the shot, took another. Comparing to the two I thought it shot looked best with the car.

The closest church to my place.

The white building is where I am living.
