Cuenca,Ecuador

ECUADOR | Tuesday, 17 June 2014 | Views [200] | Comments [1]

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.

About lipowcan8

A quick recap. I visited 19 countries in 212 days, traveled 46,000 miles by air,15,000 miles by land and spent about $25,000. My feet got beat up a few times and I twisted my ankle a couple of times.  No plane, train, car, bus, tuk tuk or taxi mishaps, not even a fender bender. I wasn't threatened or harassed and amazingly enough I didn't lose anything. It's hard to believe seven months have passed. As I said in my first entry.....a wonderful way to celebrate 60 years of living. It sure was!
