I am traveling and working in Peru right now. What a delight it has been! I am living with a family who takes care of my meals and I asked Ana, the woman who prepares the food, if she would take me to the market.
Then I saw the cheese…just laying there…out in the open. I am a nut about food safety. Some of you may not be. But I am. I could not help but think how long it had been out. Ana asked for samples for us. The woman selling the chesse used the knife to cut off pieces and handed one to me. I ate it. The cheese was delicious! And then, because I am a nut, I prayed prayed prayed the probiotics worked. I´ll have you know…there were no problems.
Then my adventure got interesting…
I can honestly say, I have NEVER seen this in my Saturday morning Farmer´s Market in the US.
And to top if off, there was this little guy in the middle of the Farmer´s Market near the carrots.
In summary, I had the best time and learned a ton. Ana is super picky about which stand she buys food from and takes great pride in the food she buys and prepares. How lucky I am to have her!
