Go back in your country.

Comment on The MIA Incident by ray Sun, 15 Feb 2015 10:57:38 +0000 “I prayed to God and Jesus Christ. I hadn’t prayed in years, maybe a decade. But when I was truly scared I prayed. I promised I’d change”

Ah! the Usual. Lucky for you, you hit on the one name that really could sail you thru Checkpoint Chokedown.

Eighteen year olds impressing friends by doing dangerous stuff might well get a pass. Depends on who. Were I you, I think I’d consider myself on House Money and cut loose the desperado smuggler gig permanently. Mebbe next time, he doesn’t have your back, and leaves you inside.


Comment on 10 Things to Do in Lima, Peru by Lydia Wed, 11 Feb 2015 20:55:20 +0000 We are going to Lima on March 20th on a cruise and will only be there for 8 hours.

I know I can get to Miraflores and do your walk…but how would I get to Plaza Major and then back. After all that is said about taxi’s, I hesitate to take one.

How important is it to go to the Indian Market?

Comment on Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts are not Paleo by Chuck Tue, 10 Feb 2015 01:35:22 +0000 Coincidentally, I’ve recently come around to eating more of the animal. Not that I was ever the boneless, skinless chicken breast type, nor am I paleo; I eat dairy, and occasionally supplement meals with rice.

You get more for your money. A whole four pound chicken for a soup at my chain grocery store costs $8. I leave the organs in. The equivalent weight in chicken thighs is, off the top of my head, about 50 percent more. Just the other day I got three pounds of chicken backs for $2.30.

The chain store doesn’t have it, but there is a nearby grocery store — owned by Koreans, customers mostly Central American immigrants — that sells beef stomach and hearts. I just haven’t figured out how to cook it yet.

Most gringos cringe when I tell them what I eat. Besides taste when it comes to eating organs, they’re put off by the high levels of saturated fat and cholesterol. Most still see these as unhealthy, including our favorite quinoa-eating ex-biomechanics student. I disagree.

I could maybe see myself eating bone marrow, but you can keep the guinea pig. I was not a fan of the smiling rodent.

Comment on Colombian Food: Worst of the Worst by Mr Darcy Fri, 06 Feb 2015 14:56:28 +0000 I enjoyed this article. Most dishes I had in Colombia were really flavorless. Perhaps I am also biased because I like Indian food and like to eat spicy. Colombia is gorgeous ! But the most popular local cuisine that is just a plate with all these mixed :

brown beans + squashed banana + rice + fried eggs + soft fries + a sausage + dry arepa’s + raw avocado

that really makes me wonder what went wrong in Colombian collective history.
