If you have a weak stomach, I suggest not looking at one of the following pictures (freshly killed guinea pig). ;)
I won't lie, today wasn't a very good day for me. Every 2-4 months, the student's families come into the city and everyone cooks together. All of the students had their families here today, except for me.
We woke up really early today (Delia came home at 5:30 from an all night church service and was yelling at us to get up). We got ready, had a quick breakfast, and began cooking. We started right around 9, and we didn't eat until 2. The majority of this time I spent standing around watching, because I don't speak Quechua like everyone else.
On the bright side, I ate cuy today! This means guinea pig! As long as you don't focus on the fact that you're eating someone's pet, it's really good! The rest of the food was amazing too, noodles, a root (I don't remember the name but it tasted like potatoes), a fried veggie mix, a stuffed chili pepper, and a big slice of homemade cheese.
There were also visitors here from the U.S. coming to check out what Sandy and Albino do, and it was kinda fun to talk to them about it. They were typical American tourists though, and were quite loud and obnoxious. It was a little embarrassing.
Once everyone left at around 4, we all crashed. We watched a movie and cleaned up a little bit. Sandy and Albino were going to the mall to get some things for Doriana, and I went along. I bought some house shoes, regularly 50 soles (about 30 American dollars) but turns out they were on sale for 15 soles (about 5 American dollars). That was a nice surprise. However, they forgot to take off the security tag, so I have to go back tomorrow before I can wear them, haha.
I've still got some studying to do tonight, so I'm going to get to it.
I hope everything is going well at home, praying for you all!
