How to become a vegetarian
After Mindo, we headed back to Otavalo to stay
with our family again for a couple of days. This time there was no saying ¨no¨ to The national dish of Ecuador-Cuy or Guinea Pig as they are more popularly known. So off we trotted to a special restaurant just outside of town. The entree comes out first which is usually the insides. (Liver, kidney and lungs) "Delicious¨shouts Marco as he throws down the heart, the size of a pea. Then out comes the main attraction. Guinea pig, head, ears, little feet and all. And the taste? well a bit like KFC if you ask me.
