Popcorn Stalls


matt 120pxWe’ve gotten a respite from months of bad food. Fresh trout is a Lake Titicaca specialty and nearly every restaurant offers it cooked in about eight different ways. And while there is some local food here, Copacabana’s strategic location on the Gringo Trail means that almost every South American traveler going through both Bolivia and Peru passes through here, which means: tourist food! Usually I don’t like tourist food because it’s sub-par versions of international cuisines, but given the alternative of Bolivian cuisine, I’ll take it. I’ve also been snacking daily on giant bags of sweet popcorn (pictured above), which taste like the cereal “Smacks.”
