Hike in Tarqui

July 21 – One of the teachers from the kids’ camp,Veronica, invited us to their family’s second home in Tarqui, about 20 minutes outside of Cuenca.  What a lovely family!  They have five children and we met their parents and one of the siblings too.  We had lunch and then hiked up a little mountain the French had surveyed.  It offered a beautiful 360 degree view of the valley.  We walked along the ridge top to another church.  Veronica’s dad was truly inspirational – in his late seventies, climbing faster than anyone else and carrying one of the grandkids to boot.  His secret – he wakes up at 4:30 am and meditates, does yoga, is very active in his community, is a life long learner and has a great attitude.

    I love the blog, Lisa! These photos are beautiful!

  2. This is GREAT! I love reading your blog and seeing the pictures. (And it’s all living up to my “expectations,” as you feared it wouldn’t in your very first post 😉 Now you’ve got to get the kids writing. Love living vicariously through you guys!

    • Wow – what a nice compliment – especially from such a great blogger like you! I am interested in feeback (good and bad) since this is my first time and I am really not sure what people want to read/see. Great idea to get the kids writing – well, Alex cannot write yet, but Rachel can! Thanks for making me believe I could do the blog – XOLisa

    • Bonnie,
      I am looking forward to hearing about YOUR adventures in Turkey. We spend a lot of time with the Wagners last week – so nice to see them. We are hoping they decide to spend their last few months here in Cuenca with us! Hope all is well with you all -XOXO Lisa
