Guinea Pig Soup

That's so sad, I told Suzanne. How could anyone eat an armadillo?
She agreed. Then she reminded me that one of the specialties
in Ecuador is guinea pigs. They served guinea pig soup
when the bishop visited the orphans when she was working there.

And in college, one of the girls was from Ecuador. Once,
when invited to a nice dinner, she was supposed to bring
a dish. So this girl went to the pet store and purchased
guinea pigs. Her host was quite offended when she arrived
with her offering . . .

My friend told me a sad story about her Chinese grandmother cooking the family pet guinea pig. She was horrified for years but now it is part of family lore.
