Papa Huancayina - Potatoes in Cheese Sauce
We begin our trip up the Amazon tomorrow morning. I´ll be without an internet connection for the next 7 days. I´m already showing signs of withdrawal and it is not a pretty sight. I thought I´d leave you with a few photos of the food we have been eating. Both the Silver Fox and I have had guinnea pig. It´s a once in a lifetime chance to eat something I can genuinely say I´ll never prepare at home. The taste is not bad but the presentation leaves much to be desired. The whole pig, and I mean the whole pig, is served on a plate. None but the brave or sightless need apply. Peru is fascinating on many levels. I know you would love it.
