Longaniza, Antigua Gutamala

After a night and a day of travelling is was time for a reward. Street sausage.

Antigua is a town surrounded by volcanos and flooded with American tourists, but still very nice none the less. The main attraction for this town for a person such as myself is the large market that dominates one side of the town.

Where i can get bags of plums for Q5 (70c) a bag.

On this evening leaving the rest of the family snoozing in the afternoon Luke & I wandered around town looking for cheap beer in a locals bar. Which we found. They gave us peanuts, nice.
Afterwards we went wandering for some cheap food and we came upon a small sections of stalls set up all selling the same sort of thing. Generally meat and tortillas.
I went for the sausage which is not something i had tried from street stall up to this point. We were informed it was called longaniza, and was basically just pork sausage.

While luke was getting into his chicken and i was still waiting a small local kid came and told him not to eat the gucamole as it looked too old. Smart kid. I ate it anyway.

I enjoyed this a lot especially the large amounts of corriander i was served, by request. Also because to tortillas were nice and crisp dirctly off the flames as you can see.
The sausage tasted like I thought the one i ate on the street in Taipei should have tasted, nice and salty. And im definitey getting to like putting lime on everything.
Now i just gotta find me some corn in a cup and burnt chicken in this town.
