Tastes like chicken

I debated naming this entry "Name that food." People ask us about exotic food all the time and when you speak with people from Lima about life in Lima, they always list the food as one of the major benefits. I have to say that the food is good. Here are two of the more exotic selections that we have eaten since we arrived:

Cuy (cui ?) otherwise known as Guinea Pig. It's a delicacy. It was very good, though the claw is a little unnerving. Thankfully, ours was without the head.

Ceviche--raw fish "cooked" in cold lemon juice and served with a ton of onions. This is the Peruvian version of sushi. It was delicious. The flavor is very strong. We all tried it, then went back for more. As the picture shows, it is often served with sweet potatoes.

Sounds like you are out of the fustration mode and have gotten into missions mode.It makes for easier reading when this happens.I continue to pray that God will continue to rain His blessings down on you and your family.Keep up the good work and dont let anything or anyone bring you down.Never forget that you have been selected by God to carry on the Gospel to all the world.
God Bless.
