Chicken-Octopus....thing, 7 with a date
1st off, I'll write a bit more tomorrow, or later tonight.....we had a long p-day.....anyway. A little
about this week.
So.....somehow I find myself still talking about the food here.....just when you thought you'd seen it all......
So. We go to eat lunch at a house....err, shack I suppose
Sign number one.
Then we walk into a 2 room house, where they asked us if we were sure it was that day that we had lunch with them and not tomorrow.
Sign number two.
Then they say the Spanish equivalent of......."Well I guess we'll see what we can do"
And that sealed our fate.
So......I started preparing my stomach, having a vague idea of what was coming.....but to say I was under-prepared would be an understatement......
They brought out a plate of octopus (which I was informed was chicken (though I have my doubts)). With some super overcooked rice and potatoes......and there was a mountain of it.......It was about the consistency of a rubber tire and tasted significantly worse. But it now has the claim to "worst food I've ever eaten on my mission"....
Other than that, in a more work related theme. We now have 7 people with a baptismal date for this month.
Iva, Fausto, Javier and his two kids, Godofredo, and Mariana!!!!
I'll talk more about that one next week.....
Got to go! More later!
Here's another P-day at Larco Mar! It's probably my favorite place to go! We ate at TGI Fridays!
(Not sure why he sent a picture with a fish in a bottle, but here it is.)
Mom; they have Dr. Pepper here, but they are hard to find. I had to get one, it reminded me of you and Dad!!!
