View from Elena’s balcony We loved our time in Cuenca. Although being in such a large city (0.5m!) was a shock after our secluded natural lives, we soon adjusted to the congested streets, the sophisticated Cuencanas and the endless churches. This was due in no small part to the mother / grandmother to all of […]
