Macro Friday: Week 42

Friday, March 11, 2011

Blogging from BoliviaAfter enjoying a wonderful four day weekend for Carnaval (a national holiday in Bolivia, kind of like Mardi Gras), this Friday snuck up on me. I’ll even confess that I almost forgot to get a Macro Friday post ready! Not that I’m complaining about a Friday, though; definitely not! :)

This week I took my macro photo of chivé (pronounced chee-veh) – an important ingredient to many Bolivian meals. Chivé is made by grinding up and drying a South American root called yuca.

I borrowed a photo of yuca from here and took a photo of my little bowl of chivé to give you an idea of what it looks like from a non-macro perspective.

Here in Bolivia we put this on all kinds of foods – on meat, hard boiled eggs, and almost anything else. It has a distinct flavor that’s hard to describe, but I assure you it’s a delicious complement to most meals :)

And finally, the macro shot:



Don’t worry, I didn’t forget to announce the winner, I just wanted to try changing up the order of things!
