    Hi folks wave.gif
    My hubby and I will be travelling in South America for the next four months.
    We'll be on the back of a truck and camping for a lot of the time, and eating
    meals prepared by the others riding on the truck with us.

    That said, whenever possible, we hope to try typical South American meals.
    Is anyone interested in seeing and hearing about these meals? If so, I'll
    post pics and comments when I can (not sure how much internet access
    I'll have as we travel along). I know I won't have any for the 7th to 11th as
    we'll be on a boat for that time. icon_smile.gif

    Here's a temptation -- pastry with chicken (in far back) and beef (with egg).
    Oh and a great coffee and a not-too-bad Poker brand beer.
    It's from a hole-in-the-wall in Bogota,Colombia.

    Thanks Sage. We're having a wonderful time.
    Here was breakfast this morning in Cartagena.

    Arepas con heuvo -- cornmeal pocket with egg.

    Love that you are taking pic and sharing with us. Actually it reminds me of the blog I used to write. Keep posting; I am interested and I will follow your travel. Wonder how you can get others on board; love this idea.
    I wish I could come up with something like this in the Caribbean forum.

    hahahaha
    Give me a year, Sage, and I'll be travelling there.

    If anyone else drops in here, I'd love to hear your thoughts on South
    American food. If you know it, what should I be trying?
    After Colombia we go to Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay
    and Brazil.

    Steak with Chimichuri would be my first choice, empanadas my second.

    Great choices Dib's. I'll let you know when I've had them.
    We spent the last five days on a boat in the Galapagos.
    All meals were provided—nothing fantastic, but nothing terrible.
    The cook was amazing though. To think that he could cook at all
    on the high seas. He even baked a cake and iced it in rough seas.
    I'd of been wearing the frosting. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Tell us more about this trip instead of making me drool about South America.

    Will do Sage. I thought I might post some pics here and then just a couple
    in the Community Cafe and link back here. Give me a few days.

    As a snack, here's a pic of the cook icing the cake on the high seas.
    That's how wide his kitchen is—from the windows to his left elbow.
    I guess it reduces the chances of him falling over. icon_smile.gif

    And here's the fruit for breakfast being delivered.

    I don't know about the beer in the rest of South America but Brazilian beer is really good. When I was there many years ago we had it every day.

    Did not realize you were posting here, love your travelogues, Peggy.

    Thanks duonyte

    Thought it might be nice to post in the specific South American forum.

    For those who don't know, we're now on an overland truck trip through
    seven countries here, starting in Ecuador. Get home in January.

    Poor John (yes my hubby is always jokingly referred to as Poor John) and
    I have already been travelling for two months—in the USA, Canada and
    Colombia. We're heading into the Amazon later this morning.

    Here's most of our group.


    Here's our truck.


    And here are a few pics of the sights we seen in South America.

    A famous traditional Ecuadorean musician.


    One of 6000 exhibits in the Museum of Gold in Bogota.


    A frigatebird in the Galapagos. They stay airborne for a week.


    A sea lion in the Galapagos.


    There's lots more on my travel blog http://leggypeggy.com,
    but I'll try to post here once a week to let people know what Poor John
    and I have been up to—and what we've been eating. icon_smile.gif

    Peggy, I was in Brazil a long time ago, but this is what I remember - fabulous coffee and beer; guarana - a soft drink; feijoada - oh yeah, but be prepared to take a nap afterwards; very interesting pizzas quite different from North American. Fresh baguettes delivered to your home each morning, ah so good. rice and beans, of course.

    There were ice cream stands, kind of like Dairy Queens, but with a big ear of corn on top - the ice cream was made from fresh corn.

    Avocado is used to make a pudding/cream dessert - the family I stayed with was quite taken aback by avocado as a savory.

    Beef is so good - must be that it's grass fed.

    Oh and of course, caipirinha!
