Young Cuenca Shoe Shiner in Parque Calderon

Where else can you get a shoe shine for $0.50 cents? In Cuenca Ecuador. Just sit down in the park and after about five or ten minutes they will find you if you are wearing black or white shoes. Never mind that you just had them shinned and they look sparkling--they will still ask if you want your shoes shined. Both of the young lads in the video are working as shoe shiners to help out their families. It's a tough business but someone's got to do it. BTW, we're pretty sure there are lots of cities in Latin America where you can get your shoes shined for $0.50 cents.
