Trying new things

Today we went to another area with ruins and got to explore those--Frank was super excited to see everything :)  Later, Carolina took us to the beach to walk around and see what the northern beaches looked  like.  We walked out on a pier and watched people fish and some take some kayak sorta things made from reeds out to tour the waters.  It was a neat little area.

Carolina's parents came and picked us up at the beach and took us to another town where we got lunch.  It's known for it's ceviche and various meats.  Frank loved the ceviche, while I just picked around at the non-seafood things which was fine.  I enjoyed a juice they call chicha morada, made from purple corn, pineapple, and cinnamon.  Then they ordered the main dishes: goat with beans, and duck with rice.  I got the goat, but couldn't quite get past the vision of a goat on my plate.  Frank of course loved the duck, and even shared the  neck with Carolina's dad. Well, at least he can be adventurous with food for me :)  I did try the goat and some raw fish from the ceviche, so I was proud of myself for that.  However, I don't think I'll be eating anymore of those the rest of the trip!  I'm not really looking forward to trying guinea pig, but Frank sure is haha  I'll dance or sing in front of a crowd, but don't give me fish, seafood, or any weird meats.
