The Airport in Cuenca

Last week in Spanish class I was learning lots of verbs that would help me while traveling. Fredy though it would be great to go to the airport to put my new verbs to good use.  Everything in Cuenca is really close even though it doesn’t seem like it, including the Cuenca airport.  It is a 15 minutes walk from out Spanish school.   The airport is in the middle of a neighborhood and is very small wit  a few flights coming in every day. We ended up going into an old flight yard with old airplanes and portable jetways. We were only about 30 feet away from the runway, yes very close. We ended up seeing about four planes land in thick fog which is really interesting because one second you don’t see anything the next it just pops out of the fog. We also saw a police helicopter land. It was super loud because we were so close. It was a great way to learn and put my new verbs into action.
