I’ve kind of mashed together Central America here too because they kind of go together for me. Also I’ve never been to South America but I have been to a few places in Central America!
My arrival day post included some great books set in South America like Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel and Origins by Jessica Khoury. I’d love to learn about more though so let me know!!
I think a lot of people have at least heard of empanadas. They sound delicious to me and I’m sure you can get them other places but I feel like it’s something you have to try from the source. Also coxinhas sound pretty good! They’re these balls of shredded chicken that are eaten with salsa sometimes. Yum yum!!
I actually have a movie that isn’t a cartoon this week! I really enjoyed Columbiana which is about a women who becomes an assassin after her parents are murdered. It’s been a while since I’ve seen it but I remember really liking it despite not being an action movie kind of person.
