Mark says I’m the only person he knows that can stretch a birthday into two months (or more!). I think he’s exaggerating a tad bit, but I have to say it started last month (middle of July) and it’s still continuing!
I’m in good company because there are more birthdays in the month of August than any other month (says Hallmark Greeting Cards). And I think that trend is continuing with all the pregnant tummies I’ve seen around Cuenca (including our neighbor—due any second). It's a girl (shh...it's a secret).
|The one and only coconut ice cream Mandala style!|
|Happy 3rd Anniversary, Leeann and John!|
|Hotel Victoria on Calle Larga|
|Dos Amigas: "Katerina & Concetta"|
|We don't have the Eiffel Tower in Cuenca, but we have the Church of Turi all lit up at night!|
|Oh, the Paris pastries....(but Cuenca comes pretty close).|
Later this week friends are taking us to the Yunguilla Valley for more celebrating and dinner at Bambu. Since Mark starts teaching “full-time” at CEDEI in September, we’re trying to get in as much celebrating as possible. Lots of blog readers are in town this month and more are due to arrive in September…so let the festivities continue.
Maybe this will be the year that I celebrate my birthday all year long!
Until next time…hasta luego!
