I´ve been in Gutemala for the past couple weeks and had an opportunity to get online, so I jumped on it. Have tasted and cooked some interesting foods. Didn´t like chicherones (sp?), the avocados are huge and the plantains are good. I got to do some traditional cooking with a family. we made a guatemalan version of tamales. Don´t remember the exact name at the moment.

I´m staying with a family here and they slaughtered their 200lbs pig 20ft from my door at 2am. That was a new experience. When I woke up they had already broken it down and were selling it to neighbors. They had a little meat market in their yard. I hope to post a nice long journal entry and pictures when I return to the US in a few weeks. Talk to you soon!!

What a scream. Sounds like you are having quite the adventure. Pork chops anyone? :eek: We look forward to the long version of your log and of course new food ideas upon your return.
Enjoy the rest of your trip.

Your story reminded me of the meat market in Morocco Logan. A cow slaughter on a wood carriage sitting in the sun was being cut to order.... To paraphrase Linda: Salad anyone?


Hope you're having a good time!

Thelogg, How is the political climate towards non-Hispanics in Guatemala ?? I've been considering taking a Spanish language course there and I've heard that it isn't safe there right now. What are you seeing with regard to this right now ??

Thanks, Linda Smith. If it's not too much trouble, could you inquire as to what region/city your friends brother was staying in ?? I'm looking at a language school in Antigua.
