Niños de Initial vuelven a aulas (Pre-school kids return to classrooms) –  A total of 10,507 three and four year olds in Cuenca will start their school year tomorrow. (Remember what I told you?  If you’re not sure what day I mean when I say “tomorrow,” just look at the header which says what today is – the day that I write this thing.)
 
Airport – Flights were cancelled last Fri. night due to rain. CORPAC (Corporación Aeroportuaria de Cuenca) got an email from TAME at 8:48 saying that it was cancelling 3 of the 4 flights on the Quito-Cuenca-Quito route.  The meteorlogical reports indicated rain and showers that evening.  CORPAC’s Executive Director asked what is the motive for the two airlines to cancel flights?

Actualidades – articles about –

Interview with poet Alverto Ordóñez.

Esoterismo (esoteric something or other) – a world full of mysteries.

Volcanoes – Ecuador is a volcanic country with 4 mountains in the process of eruption. Be prepared.  (And don’t go up there and stand on the edge of the caldera and look at the lava.  It might be the last thing you see.)

La Minga – Minga comes from the quechua word “minka,” defined as collective work for a community benefit.  There are all sorts of mingas – cleaning road side drains, cleaning up parks, painting the local school, planting trees, etc.  Often the minga is accompanied by a pampa mesa.  A white cloth is spread on the ground and people bring food to share and pour or put it on the cloth – like a pot luck.

And that´s all for today so Hasta Mañana –
