A Little Taste of Italy in Cuenca

If anyone in Cuenca likes Italian Food, we found a very tasty place to eat.  The name is Mediterrane Bar, Ristorante, Pizzeria.  The pizza is thin crust, excellent, they have wood fired oven to bake the pizza.  I had lasagna which was very good.  Address is honorato Vasquez 7-64 y Luis Cordero.  Hours are Monday thru Saturday, 12pm to 11pm, Sunday 12pm to 4 pm.  Large selection of wine to go with dinner.  The owner is Italian moved to Cuenca from Italy.  If you crave some good italian food, you will like.  Telephone # 2844138
The weather has been great, cold in morning, warm by noon.  Coats in the morning, short sleeves in afternoon.

New Update From Way Down South

Hello Friends and New Friends,
It has been awhile since a post, some folks write a lot more for which i am thankful. We are having so much fun, that we do not sit down at computer and write much.  We spent most of Sept. in the United States.  We flew to Houston and stayed a few days with Jim`s cousin who lives near the space center.  Rented a car for three weeks for fun driving.  Drove to Austin , visited old friends where we used to live for 5 days, then drove on to Denver to visit son Keith and family, grandkids.  Had a great time. Jim went riding Honda 250 dirt bike in mountains with Son and grandson for 6 hours.  A great day, came home with no broken bones.  Spent one day on lake in Colo with friends.  Left Colo drove back to Houston, few more days of shopping to fill up the trunks,  then south and home. Ah Cuenca.................Hard to beat.  Until next time.

Silene and Jim
