Look At This Lunch Meat

I am not sure how the Uruguayan people would take me calling this lunch meat, but that is what it resembles to me.

Joe did a great deal of research before we moved here, we saw videos, had slide-shows and generally discussed Uruguayan customs, foods, housing, language, futbal and of course its people.

This Little Piggy Went to Market

I needed to find some pots for my new acquisition of plants. The store that I found with the least expensive pots is located one block away from the public mercado. Daniel drove me there this morning and we saw these beauties.

I was amazed to find out that these “little piggies” were being sold for $18 apiece. Would make one heck of a BBQ after some fattening up!

They were the pinkest piglets I have ever seen.
