I´m recovering from a nasty ´bout of food poisoning after eating some incredibly delicious goat meat at my host grandmother’s house (puking in your abuela’s front yard? not a good look on anyone) and thought what better time to share a little food tidbit?!
I found this beauty in the Masaya market a few weeks back and was assured by the vendor that you can eat every single part of it and it is all delicious.
Who wants some pig head for breakfast?
I got to indulge my love of photography the other day by accompanying my site-mate to her workplace – a beautiful nature reserve that is located just out of town – and take pictures that they can use for educational and promotional materials.
The reserve is owned by the local sugarcane business and the water from the lakes at the reserve is used to water the local sugarcane fields. Home to tons of different types of birds, crocodiles, hiking trails and a ‘vivero’ (nursery), the place is beautiful.
We spent the day getting stranded on our boat out in the middle of the lake (motor crashed), hiking around one of the lakes, hunting for a croc sighting (no such luck), and eating good food. I was also gifted some beautiful papaya, cut straight from the tree (see pics below).
Here are some pics from our day:
The Guys: Pedro, Ricarlo and Eduardo.
Meet my precious neighbors!
They are a collection of siblings and cousins, split between two houses down the street from me.
Sarita – this little doll was quite scared of me at first, but what a joyous little thing now!
This is what I get to come home to each day – these sweet faces greeting me, begging me to come to their house, hang out, talk, go on adventures.
Ricarlo & Jocelyn
They also love to come show up at my house and yell ¨Gringa, gringa, keeeysi, keeeysi, gringa¨. Ah, such love.
Cuties cutie cuties!
