Ipiales is a city in Nariño Department, Colombia, near the border with Ecuador. Ipiales is known as "la ciudad de las nubes verdes" (the city of the green clouds) because some times, especially in the afternoon, green clouds appear over the city. One of the area's favorite foods is the guinea pig or cavy (Cavia porcellus), called "cuy", said to "look like a mouse and taste like a rabbit".
