I have been an educator most of my life. Now as I anticipate retirement in the not so distant future, I am looking forward to traveling and to finding a new home. Cuenca first came to my attention over the 2009 Christmas season. I discovered her by accident through a link on Yahoo, in which "International Living" listed Cuenca "Numeral Uno" among the ten best places for retirees to live. Of the ten cities listed, Cuenca most definitely caught my eye. Was it love at first site or just infatuation? As I researched this beautiful city, I fell more in love with her with each passing day. So now I begin a journey to find out if Cuenca is just a long-distance romance, or if for me, is she the real thing?
I will be traveling to the heartland of the Andes and arriving in Cuenca on Tuesday, July 13th and depart from the city on Monday, August 9th. In the days and weeks ahead, I will share my thoughts, reactions, and decisions with you as my journey and adventure begins.
