Looking for the Houses

Finally I had two hours to myself. And it was my last day in Cuenca – I had to visit the city!

So I got my phone and google maps and started walking, uphill (of course) towards the Hanging Houses.

I got lost. Of course. And the loster I got, the hotter it became and the steeper the road. Which was cobbled, of course. Of course.

In the end, I found them. But while I was getting there, I saw some corners of the city that I’m sure not many tourists see. Here they are.

Aha! I found them! But no, google says they’re still quite a way away and not in that direction. Oh well, I’ll take a photo anyway – they’re quite cool!

UUuhhh this looks interesting! Pity it was closed….imagine a bar, with a garden, and this name. How decadent could that be?

Uphill and downhill and stopping to take photos

I did get there. Here you can find more photos of the lovely little city and its sights 🙂


About Full Of Daisies

I am permanently in love. Things I like: purple, pasta, silk, autumn, the smell of mould, candles, cachi, having friends, water, new things, rice, eggs (all eggs!), fresh grass, olive trees, shiny things, glitter, hanging objects, windcatchers, wind, couscous, wasabi, carnivores, presents, snow, leaves, orchids, feathers, cappelletti, meat, fruit (all fruit), more del gelso (Morus alba L.), pigs, candles, christmas, polenta fritta!, separating egg whites from yokes in my hands, cartoons, dragons, the ocean, nudibranchi, cows, mercury (the metal), cosmos (the flowers), thunderstorms, Mika, turtles, acquariums, green and blue (mixed), siccamores, spring, snails, 24, porc with a sweet sauce (apple, cranberry, tomatoes jam), looking at a swimming pool upsidedown and underwater, english accent, open-minded people, driving, blue skies, checkered tablecloths, butterflies, books and cartoons in rhyme, painting eggs, the star-shadows that football players have, silver, laughing, Vivaldi, bells and chimes, white and purple, creating. Complete Happiness: Early morning. Sun, with a breeze; a pond with water lilies. A house, with a garden, full of plants. A vegetable patch, lemon, orange and mandarin trees. Cosmos everywhere. Birds in the trees; a tortoise eating the salad from the vegetable patch; a mammal (I couldn’t decide which one would make me happier) close by. No houses for as far as the eye can see. Me, a man that loves me and that I love. Friends coming over for a lunch that I have to prepare, and have all the ingredients for all ready in the kitchen.
