This morning I woke up with a very stiff back and barely made it to the workout. After about 10 minutes on the machines I was feeling better.
After a wonderful breakfast where they know us already....the waiter brought out my soft boiled eggs and my triple shot of espresso.
We caught a taxi towards the Cathedral but stopped short at the Calle Larga, where we walked the length of it and saw the mercado. We entered and took some pictures but did not buy anything as we had just eaten breakfast. The mercado had lots of little spots for eating and vegetables and fruit on sale.
We then went to several museums and galleries. Two of the favorite places were the free ones.... Historic Center of Cuenca and the Pumapumgo Ruins where inside the museum section they have shrunken heads.
We stopped for lunch I had fish and Carmen had a fried shrimp rice that was too much food. We both said we should have ordered the daily menu meal for half the price. We took off walking again and did our best to stay on the shaded side of the street, as the sun was very hot today.
We entered into a historic nunnery, where we were able to see bits of the lives of the girls that chose to enter into the convent. Many of the girls were from Aristocrat families and had items that they took with them to the convent. Those items were on display at the museum/convent. They also had a cemetery that was part of the chapel.
