A Cajas Day!

Last week was gorgeous weather (almost every day), so last Thursday while the sun was still shining, we woke up, looked at each other and said, "It's a Cajas Day!"

We've been holding out on visiting due to the weather and altitude adjustment. We went with a friend who drove us there and I couldn't believe what I saw. It reminded me of Switzerland, Austria, and the California Nevadas (sort of an odd combination -- I know!).

We made it to 11,000 feet and lunched at Dos Chorreras and booked the honeymoon suite at the hosteria for our 35th wedding anniversary next month. They gave us a tour of the facilities and we were mesmerized. My camera card was full and every other picture I had to delete. Sigh...

Next time, we want to make it up to the lakes, but this was just a trial run to see if the altitude affected us, and I'm happy to report that it did not. We drank coca tea, so I'm sure that had a lot to do with it.

So remember, when the sun is shining head to the mountains and make it a Cajas Day!

Until next time...hasta luego!

Some more photos of the Cajas -- enjoy!

My first llama and I have to get the backside?!?

That's better...bring your friends to see the gringos!

No words needed.

Hola Connie, Well the day has arrived and we will be boarding a 12 hour bus to Mexico City in a few hours, then a flight to Bogota, and within a couple of weeks we should be arriving by land in Cuenca. Will be looking for a furnished apartment to rent for at least a couple of months. Any suggestions or recs would be greatly appreciated! Loved your llamas! How far is Las Cajas from Cuenca? Many thanks and hola to Mocha! Laura in Mexico

Wow, Laura, you're making the move! The Cajas are just 20 minutes from our doorstep! And the llamas will be awaiting your arrival. We are with the Condominium Oro Verde and they have short-term rentals in our building. One bedroom I know is available. Email me at Buen viaje!
