Flower Market at Night

Cuenca, Ecuador's flower market has long been one of its main attractions. And now it extends into the night -- or at least the vendors kiosks are left in place overnight. Ecuador is one of the leading flower growers in the world, with daily shipments to the U.S. as well as Europe. Roses, carnations and various other delights are available at the market for a pittance, at least compared to U.S. prices.
