  1. I think the
    – The Ruta de las Criptas (Route of the Crypts) will start on miércoles, 30/11 should be 30/10, which is a Wednesday, 30 Nov is a Saturday. Looks like Fun.

  2. By “Holiday” I imagine you mean “Christmas”. People are so afraid to use that word in our Marxist world — I guess because it contains the word, Christ.

    1. I’m afraid you don’t know Cuenca very well. The next big holiday in fact Cuenca’s biggest holiday, size wise is Cuenca’s Independence Day, It is a 3 or 4 day holiday which also includes, Day of The Dead, The Day of the Children and runs from the very end of October and goes until the around the 4th of November. Know your facts before you get nasty,please!

      1. Thanks. ……. All the more reason to call Christmas by its name. Cuenca has so many holidays. I cringe when I hear “Happy Holidays”.

  3. What does “1-4/11” mean? Could this be the date of the event? If it is, could you make it intelligible to regular people? Whatever happened to using months as a designation of time?

      1. Humans are not computers. We don’t SAY it that way in every day life. You don’t say “i was born on 25/10/45”. You say “I was born on October the 25th, 1945. It’s just easier when you use months and days. I mean who talks that way? If you are going to meet with somone on Sunday you don’t say, “I’ll meet you on seven”. Humans actually like to hear the day and the month without having to count on their fingers what the tenth month is.
