I learned something new this week…

The word for caterpillar is vinkubala.  And it is a treat to eat here in Zambia.

No thank you.

The sweet husband decided to give it a try.  More power to him and Josh for being stupid brave.  I was completely unaware of this little event.  Good thing.

Lucy, one of the house mothers at the TOL, made them a special pot! The Zambians LOVE caterpillars and they are a great source of protein. They are typically boiled, then fried with vegetables. Josh said it tasted like a burnt Frito.  I will take his word for it.

Lucy was laughing so hard…

    They look delicious Andrew! If you don’t bring any back for me, I will forgive you. You can eat my share while you are there.

    Hope you guys are doing well. It’s fantastic to see you all happy and together as a family again. Wow, 39 hours of travel, whew, that is a long ways.
