Today Joe and I went into town to have our lunch. We walked the beach which is so much more relaxing and beautiful rather than using the road. The fishermen were out in full force.
These guys got a real kick out of me wanting to take some pictures, everyone was posing with huge grins on their faces. They are fishing for herring – the small silver fish which we were told are made into pet food, but shrimp and larger fish are caught as well and they are separating them out from what goes to the processing plant.
Oh – lunch was a big bowl of viche made with chunks of fish, carrots and plantains in a peanut broth. The segundo was filet of corvina, white rice, yellow lentils and a small salad of tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and green pepper with a mighty glass of either fresh pineapple juice or naranjilla —- I am still stuffed…sorry no pictures too busy eating ; ) GRIN!!!
