I just got meat in my hair..

Is what Andrea just said when bumping into the cecina, drying outside.  Cecina is one of the local dishes and typical ways to prepare meat around here being that there is very
little, if any refrigeration.  It’s a little bit odd to see the same lines used for drying our cloths now with plenty of raw steak.  No wonder the animals have been chewing on my freshly dried shirts and underwear.

A chicken, a sink, and a hungry American..

with 2 comments

Here’s the dirty side to life with a bunch of chickens in the backyard, you gotta eat them sometimes and would like to pick up some sharper knives to do up the birds..  I almost think a guillotine would be best, but then again folks around here like cooking and eating the chicken head.

Calf Cast..

Sometimes it’s just not worth putting down a calf when the front leg breaks, cast it up and see what happens.

The district celebrated its birthday last week with a few festive days of parties, flag raisings, a mass, competing fires, sporting events (soccer), and a walk with the flag around the town plaza.

Here representatives from all the major organizations in town parade with the flag around the plaza.

Each of the 4 'corners' of town built fires on the night before the anniversary.  Our corner (first corner) did not win with this flame.

Tale of 2 Latrines..

with one comment

Well, they’re up and running.  Just have to decide which one is best for the men and the ladies.  During the Molinopampa town anniversary this past weekend there were exciting soccer games at Colpar.  Luckily all had a comfortable place to relieve themselves.

Base is solid and waste hole is just the right size.  Don't want any little kids to fall through.

They are simple, but effective.

Too bad the Colpar horses cannot take advantage of these new services.
