I was born in Ireland and my wife Enid was born in England. We met in 1970 when I was working for Educational Television Zambia and Enid was working as an operating nurse and midwife for Anglo-American Mining Corporation in Zambia. We have four adult children who live in different parts of the world - but still regard their parents as an automatic cash machine. We have lived in different countries, most recently the USA. We fell in love with Cuenca while traveling in South America and decided to purchase a home here. We waited until a one-of-a-kind property became available and it now provides us with the luxury living we appreciate. We enjoy traveling and this enables us to share our immaculate home with others. We like to visit our home countries and wherever our children are temporarily located internationally. Our trip to the Galapagos Islands was a highlight of our recent travels.We are learning Spanish and enjoy participating in Cuenca's many cultural activities and eating in the many fine, inexpensive local restaurants.
