peruvian fun fact #2

peru is the motherland of all tubers. and yet, while i was there, it wasn't the potatos that caught my attention but the large kerneled corn.

seriously, that corn... so FANTASTIC. months later, i still dream about that corn, the kernels are large enough to pick off the cob one by one. you can buy corn in the husk for one sol (about 30 cents) and for half a sol more, you can get a large slab of mild campesino cheese shoved between the husk and cob. and it gets all meltly and soft.

mmmm, corn. and cheese.
