Pic of the day

Face to face with my dinner, a deep fried guinea pig.  They are called cuy in Peru and are widely eaten everywhere.  We once walked through a street fair with about 50 booths, all with several cooked cuy front and center on display to lure in passerby's.  We went to a nice restaurant for ours (David ate alpaca but it wasn't much of a photo op), although I bet the street fair ones would have tasted better.  Being deep fried, I can't comment much on taste, it was very greasy and had the consistency of chicken.  Not good, but not bad either.  It's the teeth that get me though.
