Photographer's Note

"THE TOMEBAMBA RIVER RAVINE (EL BARRANCO):
This is one of the most charming places in Cuenca, along a ravine formed by the erosive action of the river. The flat terrain on which the colonial center of Cuenca is located, abruptly ends and escends to the Tomebamba River in a vertical drop. The cheerful noise of the water and the picturesque hanging style houses which stretch down the green slopes along the Tomebamba river, surprise the visitors with a peculiar combination of nature and architecture. Women still do their washing in the river and spread out the clothes to dry in the banks, in very colorful patterns." (http://www.ladatco.com/EC%20CUE%20Info.htm)
