I’ve decided to change my blog’s profile name from my intended pen name to my real name, since I’ll be using Cristina if my new manuscript becomes a book (cross your fingers for me!!!!!)
I just got back from another trip to Peru – no earthquakes this time thank goodness! What was new, you might ask? Well, an attack of tiny gnats that put me in a wheelchair at the Miami airport on the way home (extreme allergic reaction), and a trip up the Andean foothills that might have me converted into a vegetarian. 🙂
Warning: if you are actually a vegetarian, or you have small animals as pets, you probably want to stop here.
I watched my family eat cuy (guinea pig), a typical food of the highlands. They are high in protein and low in fat (low in meat also I would guess…) I couldn’t bring myself to eat it – would you?
If you’re up for it, here’s a link to the guinea pig festivals in Peru, and below, a picture of my family’s meal: http://www.viralnova.com/guinea-pig-festival/
