The Sidewalks of Cuenca

21 Jan

Cuenca is a walking city. We walk to the fruit and vegetable market, the wine store, the bakery and the hardware store. We walk to visit the flower market, museums, churches and the university. And then we may just walk to look and see this new place.

Where most people observe at eye level, Dana is a 360 degree looker. So he was the first to notice the sidewalks of Cuenca. The patterns and designs are unique to neighborhoods, blocks, special landmarks, or sometimes it seems there will be a set placed on a random whim.

Here is a visual sampling of the sidewalks we have trod in our daily travels.

And while looking down we came upon this medallion marking underground telephone lines…from quotidian to art.

    Good seeing Dana. I love finding patterns in nature and these photos are fun to look at. Looking forward to exploring this city more with you two.

      Dede’s manhole covers were an inspiration. I love those. Good design is where you find it, eh?

    The young can walk looking up and down and all around the town. The old mostly look down. Thanks for the expanded horizons
