Cuenca party time...

Even though we were there on business, we still had time to have a little fun, as we joined Brian and Holly for dinner at our Horse hosteria called Caballocampana, and later at their home for a really nice get together where lots of gringos traded stories, and traded gifts...

 

They set us up in our own little fireplace warmed alcove, as the rest of the dining room was set up for Christmas parties...see sample table...

 Here are several more shots of the grounds, horses and buildings...

 

 Our suite was the whole top floor of this three story building...

 We particularly like this really large scene--all done in tile...

Here's Rox and Cocquita looking out from our balcony... 

These cute, young ladies were glad to pose for Rox as they paraded down the main drag on the way to a huge party.

 

Here are several shots of Brian and Holly's Christmas party...the first two are Brian and Shelly from Canada, who are now living here in Cuenca, after fourteen years of living on a boat...

 

 

Here are several shots of everyone enjoying the gift exchange...lots of laughs and good times...

 

 

Rox schmoozing with Happy, Mark's service dog...sure looks a lot like our great old doggie, Bagel...

 Rox got a little indigenous chicken decorator item...

 

Here's a shot of Brian our host.  you can see Holly in the first pic where we are all seated for dinner...

It turns out that Brian and Shelly's daughter, Mackenzie, gets two pictures...first she selected our exchange gift of an extra large sand dollar, and then her mom told us later that the bottle of beach sand that we included is just perfect for her baby chicken's diet...so here she is with sand dollar and baby chick... 

 So, Brian and Holly, thanks for a great evening, and the introduction to a lot more fun ex-pats, who all have a story to tell...

 

This pic of Grace and Nelson doesn't exactly go here, it goes below, but I couldn't get it to load in the correct place...
