The celebrations in Cuenca were vibrant, colourful, peopleful and fun. As you can see from the pictures there were some cool fireworks where the whole crowd participated in the show! There were bands and different stalls and shows around the town including a go kart race.
Just like in Columbia, Ecuador has plenty of tasty and cheap street food on offer and being a festival as well there was heaps on offer. The meat available was delicious: there are so many kebab varieties, including guinea pig! There were varieties of ice cream, salchipapas, plantain and other tasty snacks.
In addition to the street food we found a really good schwarma shop/hole in the wall called Arabe Schwarma. The chicken was cooked and flavoured beautifully, the price right and the man really friendly. We even went back for seconds!
