Cuenca

My last stop in Ecuador before heading to Peru was Cuenca. While walking through the city what struck me the most was the number of churches that can be found in a really small proximity from each other. Churches are as popular in here as starbucks in the US and can be seen on every corner.  With its colonial buldings and whitewashed walls it is probably the closest thing to Europe that I have seen so far in South America.
