2012 Cuenca Perspectives Collage

2012 Cuenca Perspectives Collage


My mission in publishing this blog is first to provide a living history of my settlement and life in Cuenca, and to provide myself and the reader with a journal account delineating my reasons for why I have chosen to settle in Cuenca. Second, the posts are my way of staying in contact with family and friends back in the states, and to provide them with an understanding of a country and culture that most North Americans have little knowledge and awareness. Third, the blog is open to one and all who wish to compare and contrast the experiences of expat bloggers living in Cuenca, so that you can determine whether or not from your perspective Cuenca is an appropriate move for you. Fourth, my blog provides another example of how expats view and interpret life in Cuenca. Ecuadorians and Cuencanos who may read this blog are especially invited to post comments that may enhance all expats understanding and appreciation of Cuneca and its people, or to correct any misinterpretations in my assumptions and perceptions of Cuencano culture. Finally, I hope I can convey the feeling of love and appreciation that grows within me each passing day for this heavenly city nestled in the Andes and its very special people.

This being the beginning of Holy Week, I listed below two links to two of my past posts, one link which is for those who wish to know more about the Jewish Passover which is celebrated from March 25th until April 2nd this year of 2013.  Th second link is about the celebration of the Christian Holy Week as it is celebrated in Cuenca, Ecuador beginning with Palm Sunday, March 24th through Easter Sunday, March 31st of this year.

  1. When I click on either of the links, it first makes me log into my Google account, then tells me I don't have permission to view the page. ???

  2. I have no idea why you were told that. My statistics show that people have been able to click on and access both links. I really hate all this electronic crap. There's always something that has a glitch or takes hours to figure out. I made a small change. Whether that will give you access or not I don't know. I am sorry for the inconvenience.
