We are loving Cuenca. But we were starting to get homesick for family and friends after 6 months in our new home. So, when Chad’s parents came to visit in July it was the perfect time.
Nancy and Tom visited us for two weeks. We spent the first few days touring Cuenca, and then we visited other areas of Ecuador that we had yet to see.
We started off Nancy and Tom’s visit with a tour of the historical downtown.
Then we went to Parque Calderón, Cuenca’s main square.
And we took a ride on the tourist bus
We also strolled through Pumapungo
We had a special treat with this visit to Pumapungo because one of the gardeners explained the gardens to us. He even let us try a fruit that was new to us, the chamburo.
While Nancy and Tom were visiting we also went to a birthday party picnic on the shores of the Yanuncay River.
After relaxing some in Cuenca, we headed out to visit other areas of Ecuador. More posts to come soon with those adventures!
