  • This is a spicy soup is called menudita, which is odd because it means petite, but it's a hearty soup with corn, pork and chicken. The green bits look like green onion, but are actually aloe vera.

  • This is in the art gallery in the basement of the Simon Patiño mansion. Those are live, uninsulated wires. Something you would never see in the States!

  • I thought this was poignant as it was right across the street from the big fancy Simon Patiño mansion.

  • This is charque, which is a kind of jerky served hot, in this case along with cheese, corn, potatoes, and four soft boiled eggs. The eggs seemed like an odd choice... Also who could possibly eat all this food?!
  • This is Parque Pairumani, just an hour or so outside Cochabomba. It was nice to get out of the city for a little while.
