We’ve been seeing pilgrims walking into town for today’s celebration that wards off earthquakes. They walk for weeks!

Forget the kitchen sink, give me the farm

Our mixed grill (called parillado) at the parilla included: chorizo (sausage), a few beef steaks, a piece of goat, beef ribs, a chicken breast, a pork chop, black pudding, large intestine, thymus gland, and udder.

I pretty much skipped the offal (but did take 1 bite of each) and split the rest with Ben. We ate this around 11 pm and went to bed at 12:30. I fear the scale when I get home.
