guinea pig (cuy) feast & the electric shower

Sorry it's been a while since the last post, I was out of town and unable to post. I have some interesting pictures from the trip and hope to put those on sometime soon. Here are some from a recent cuy (guinea pig) lunch that we had with some friends. They raise their own guinea pigs and had us over for the lunch. We made a day out of it. They showed us how they prepared it and they also baked some bread. All of this was with Ramon and his family.
The first picture here is of Christine helping with the bread.
Here's the cuy! It was actually pretty tasty. They had a nice garlic flavoring on it and that helped quite a bit. It tasted like...you guessed it, chicken, at least quite a bit like it. This next picture is kind of unflattering but is a picture of us eating the tasty rodent treat.
Here's a picture of the lunch plate, complete with corn, potatoes, chicken and guinea pig.
Here's a picture of a 'ducha electrica', otherwise known to us as a widowmaker. This means electric shower. Electricity is used to heat up the water. As you can see, there are wires that are hooked up to a switch and the shower head. Surprisingly, I haven't really heard of any accidents due to these, that doesn't mean that none haven't happened. Don't worry, we don't have one but have seen them when we were looking for a house or at friend's houses or hotels.
Just want to share a quick update and prayer request now-This is related to Edwin and Jenny, who I have shared about before. We went to meet with them today and not only them but some of their relatives. This is an idea we had talked about before but really didn't have any specific plans to start meeting as a group, well they did something about it, put everything together and surprised us. This is quite an exciting development. Pray for the group there as they get started and continue.

wow, you guys are adventurous. Maybe I could eat it if the head wasn't still on. My food shouldn't look at me. Of course, I try to think of my chicken, beef, etc. coming just from Walmart already wrapped in plastic (not a real animal;)
