All who wander are not lost but sometimes you really are just lost.
Sitting in Calderon Park, waiting for the Cuenca walking tour to begin, I met “Da $hoe$hine Boyz!”. That’s just a name I gave them but I feel like they’d be real happy with it. They offered to shine my sneakers (?) and I tried to explain… nah, I just said “No” actually but they wantedContinue reading “8 Aug 19”
You can tell it’s the middle of the world because there is a line going right through it just like on a globe. Plus the country is named Ecudor, get it like “e-qua-tor”.

This is my first tour in Mexico and on my trip overall. I signed up with one operator but when we got to Monte Alban I was shuffled off to the English-speakers tour and bus for the rest of the day.
