A brief but nice stopover in Cuenca. I don't have the pics downloaded yet. I'm off to Peru tonight, not sure how long of abus ride. Some items you may find interesting about Ecuador. All guns are outlawed, the police I have seen do not carry guns. Bank security etc. have hand guns and machine guns. The official currency is the US dollar. This is where all the 1 dollar coins end up. The water in the toilet flushes clockwise. Saw the southern cross for the first time.......thought of David Crosby's song I've heard for the past 30 to 40 years. There's more info to pass on, can't think of it now. If you get the chance visit Ecuador, beautiful country-nice people and inexpensive.
