Cravings in the Wild

Throughout our three days in the Bolivian sticks, we hiked a lot. On our first day alone we hiked a little over 25 km up thick steep jungle trails. Needless to say we worked up quite an appetite and the prospect of having just plain pasta didn´t intice any feeling of comfort food. So when we came across our guides home, we immediately saw the numerous plump, chickens running around the yard. The four of us inquired about buying one and 35 bolivianos later we had a live chicken in a sack and fresh herbs from his mother´s garden. Now all we had to do was kill it and figure out a way to cook it. Thank god we had machetes. Chicken has never tasted so good.
