Visit to Cuenca and Banos

Posted by on April 15, 2014

We recently returned from a visit to Cuenca and then Banos.  The week last week was spent in Cuenca, a city in the South of Ecuador, known as the historic capital.  Kim took Spanish classes there at Simon Bolivar, the same school we take classes at in Quito.  She would do 4 hours of Spanish in the morning and then we would all get together for the afternoon and evening.  It was great visiting different historic and cultural sites and taking in new scenery.  We have been to Cuenca before, but there isn’t a whole lot of reason for us to visit because there are no Covenant ministries there and it is a LONG way from Quito.  Luckily we had a free week to go and study.  Over the weekend we went to Banos, one of our favorite places in Ecuador.  If you have watched the news recently, you may have seen one of the volcanos in Ecuador, Tungurahua, recently had a minor eruption.  Well, the town below this volcano is Banos.  We only heard one explosion while we were there and the rest of the time was spent enjoying our favorite hostel and the sites of Ecuador.  Enjoy the pictures from our trip…
