Rudy Girón has been running a series of posts on Guatemalan cuisine and yesterday's entry featured V's favourite local snack, chuchos.
She doesn't normally like paying anyone in advance for goods or services yet to be delivered, but makes an exception with an old lady who produces her own tamales and chuchos and comes to our street in Antigua once a week to serve them up to her subscribers. I remember one evening last July when the gathering gloom matched V's sinking spirits: her chuchos were late. To avoid pacing up and down indoors we took the dog for walk and on the return leg spotted the old lady with her basket in the distance as she approached from the main road. Much rejoicing ensued.
