The first day we went out to visit with the orphans. 4 of the Madres there were having birthdays within a month's time, so we brought a cake and had a little celebration for them....they also had a celebration for us and had made us some lunch (chicken and rice) ... there were little bowls of salsa (ooooh, fresh salsa!) and some other little bowls of roasted peppers.
|Our Seafood Surprise|
Then, yesterday my instructor told us about how great this little seafood place was. "They have this thing that has avocado, some cilantro, some shrimp and clamato juice over it all" sounded great. So, away we went. She orders one (grande) and the waitress says, "Mixas??" and Toni says, "When in doubt, say ci!" so...we did.
What we didn't know was that "mixas" meant that your lovely shrimp dish was mixed with octopus, clams and something that looked like leftovers from an anatomy class. It was a horrifying concoction that came to us! I tried, I honestly tried to eat it....but even after trying to dig out just the prawns, I couldn't do it.
What an experience!!
