Market Mornings #4
Next week at this time, I will be in the city of Aucayacu in the jungle! We are going to be cleaning off a lot to reconstruct a home and celebrate a special time with the community. This special time include a Festival of Juanes. I have already told you, they are probably my most favorite food here in Peru. Consider it a marriage between arroz con pollo and a tamale. Instead of banana leaves, the rice is wrapped with bijao leaves. On the day before the festival, everyone rushes to the market to buy the special ingredients.
