Walking to school

Morning at school, then find a place with wifi for lunch.  La Goda; it’s very nice but expensive for Cuenca.  I go back to the school at 3 for a 2 hour walking tour of the centre of Cuenca.  There are three other students and the guide speaks quite quickly, in fact too quickly for at least one student who understands very little of what is said.  We walk around the town, go to the plaza and church of San Sebastian, visit the museum of modern art which doesn’t really appeal to me, except that it used to be a jail.  Next is the artisan’s market.  My knee is really sore, so I don’t go to the Panama hat factory, but instead have a drink and ice-cream with one of the other students, who has sore feet. 

 

At six o’clock we return to the school where there is a cooking demo of  Ecuadorian food.  We then get to eat the food, but I’m not very keen on it.  I find that many of the meals that I have had tend to be bland and salty and eaten with a spicy sauce.  I’d prefer to have a tasty meal.  It’s a bit embarrassing because I’m often asked if I like the food and of course the person who’s asking hopes that I do.

 

The demo and eating is finished by 7 and I go back to La Goda restaurant and use the wifi for a while, then return to the house and do my homework .
