First comes the slimy then the chewy

We had a productive day today …as we visited the Kallari production center where they are building 2 new structure for drying cacao seed. We then went to have lunch at an authentic Kichwa couple food stall …where we both had whole tilapia fish wrapped and grilled in leaves and also tasted the famous
‘Chuntakuro’ or more widely known as the slimy fat grub looking worm…yes…it’s a little slimy at first but when it comes to the skin…its very chewy and soft….pretty disgusting but the seasoning was not that bad…We then head back to the Kallari office and had a great meeting…where we talked about the design a lot and came to the conclusion that we had to forgo a rafting trip tomorrow in order to get another meeting with the Kallari leaders before we head off back to Quito., I think its all worth the while as we are here to help the community to finalize the design with the new site….so it will be another working day tomorrow…..
