The India Quiché soda is a staple of Quiché. This company started back in 1926 and has since then been producing different flavor sodas one of them the particular "Crema Soda", cream soda.During the armed conflict when no commercials trucks came to the area of Quiché, this company was able to meet the demand. Now India Quiche is sold in the highlands region but also can be found in Guatemalan communities all over the United States. In the picture, Nicole in Sacualpa having a Crema Soda India Quiché.

It made our faces smile!!!
Two days later we found the second store of Antojitos Nineth in Morales Izabal and repeated the procedure, except this time they also offered a chimichurri sauce.

It immediatly reminded me of the lullaby I loved singing to her.
There are three pasos y pedales (steps and bike pedal), that I know of, in the city on Sundays (in zone 14, 11 and 2) and they are deffinetly and oasis in the city a beatiful opportunity to hang out with the kids.
Hush little baby, don't say a word,
Papa's gonna buy you a mockingbird.
And if that mockingbird won't sing,
Papa's gonna buy you a diamond ring.
And if that diamond ring turns to brass,
Papa's gonna buy you a looking glass.
And if that looking glass gets broke,
Papa's gonna buy you a billy goat.
And if that billy goat won't pull,
Papa's gonna buy you a cart and bull.
And if that cart and bull turn over,
Papa's gonna buy you a dog named Rover.
And if that dog named Rover won't bark,
Papa's gonna buy you a horse and cart.
And if that horse and cart fall down,
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town!

Peanut is one the characteristic crops of this arrid area. To make this drink peanut is grounded, then sugar, water and vanilla extract are added.
We had this drink at the fork that takes you to Asuncion Mita or Agua Blanca coming from Jutiapa.

Answer: Koyow. My interpretation a poor man's avocado. Similar look (more primitive), similar consistency (less smooth), taste mmm (bla). He gave it to me, said have it and advice me to eat it with lime and chile de Cobán (kind of cayenne pepper).

I had never seen this fruit that was presented to us as a Salvadorean fruit, sometimes refered as mamones.
No surprise, I started inquiring about it. It is sold peeled in a bag of about 6 talpas, seasoned with gorund pumkin seed, salt, powder chicken broth (I know) and lime. Q2.00 a bag (25 US cents)
Talking with our vendor she told us she opens the fruit with a knife because the public health office trains the vendors every year on sanitary measures and for her one is no to open them using her fingernails.
It has the consistency of an offspring of a grape that married a jocote!! Big seed in the middle and juicy but more meaty.
