After a few short days, unfortunately our beach side stay came to an end. Off on another overnight bus, we crossed the border into Ecuador and went back up into the Andes to Cuenca.
Cuenca is Ecuador’s third-largest city and is filled with some beautiful colonial architecture, narrow cobblestone streets, handsome plazas and lots of impressive churches. We checked into an AirBnb apartment for a few days and made use of having a kitchen, heading to the local market to pick up some ingredients, and enjoying some home cooked meals.
In the mornings we got up early to go for a run along the Rio Tomebamba before Tristan headed off to Spanish classes and Jen settled in for some days of Netflix and blogging of course.
