And the Answer Is...

video
Catherine guessed correctly - we finally tried guinea pig or as it is known as here - cuy. I am afraid I just couldn't get past the fact that back home they are pets (or that they look like rats on a stick while cooking). The flavor itself was quite good but I didn't really like the texture either. Oh well at least I can say I ate it!
The family that invited us are dirt poor and as you will see in the video - they don't have much. They are so kind though and very clean even though they don't have two pennies to rub together. We feel privileged to have been invited.
The two girls featuring on this video are Kami and Sara, visiting from America. We met Kami last year as she was visiting C & M when we first arrived so it is like seeing an old friend. She serves in a sign language congregation back in California so has some stories to tell too. It is very cool to meet all these different ones - I am talking up NZ so they may get the bug to visit us over there sometime and then you can meet them too!

Beth you are a brave woman. I am afraid I would have to embarass myself I could not bring myself to eat it.
