And I thought, a bit densely, that my meat consumption would decrease after the holidays. It has jumped up a bit with all of the asados I have been lucky enough to partake in.
In case I failed to explain how much meat these people eat, I thought today´s visit to the grocery store a very fitting picture. Look at how much meat is being offered. When I took this picture it was after a gang of Uruguayans left as well. It was definitely the hot spot of the store.
No, this is not a butchery. This is behind the deli counter in the supermarket. Meat, tons of it.
And in another fitting note, the manager approached me and let me know that taking pictures of the meat was not permitted. I got a good chuckle out of that one. The all powerful meat - they don´t want to give their secrets away (justifiably right?).
