3 months ago Sharon, Feisty ( our 16 year old kitty) and I left Oregon and started our retirement in Cuenca. We have been very fortunate so far. We have met some wonderful expat and Cuencano friends and our apartment is 20 meters from the ever changing Yanuncay River. A son of a Cuencano friend one day described the river as angry and told me that the rivers take on the personality of a human. Today I took my camera and shot the river at different times of the day. Today, I would call the river "friendly".
