We also stopped at a little stand that had a lot of Peruvian baked goods. I first spotted alfajores, which are also from Argentina. Very tasty little cookies made of two rounds of short-bread with dulce de leche between. Another bakery had some blueberry scones that were to die for! Jack bought a couple and we ate them for lunch, when we got home, with a glass of cold milk. Mmmm
Something else I had never seen nor tasted was boiled peanuts! Sister Mihlberger told us that she had tasted them and didn't like them at all. Luckily, the vendor gave us each a sample...and I thought they were yummy! We ended up buying a cup of them.
The picture with the big fire hydrant (Clifford's fire hydrant) was taken a few blocks away from the market. The shot that appears to be taken just outside a tunnel, was really taken in a parking lot. It's a mural on the side of a building. Pretty cool, huh?
