A few weeks ago, Mark had to travel to Riobamba (about 5 hours from Cuenca) to give a speech about public speaking. We saw the scene on the way and thought how this would never happen in the States. These two guys were hitching a free ride up the mountain.
The trip was lovely, switching from beautiful scenery to lots of fog.
Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. was the first lecture. At 10:00 a.m. (as usual) not too many showed up on time.
But, by 10:45 a.m. most arrived for the end of the lecture. SMILE.
Unforturnately, immediately after the lecture we had to head back home. We were hoping for a long weekend to just get away and relax, but that wasn't possible since I came down with strep thoat. It was a miserable 5 hour trip back to Cuenca.
