... a (another) tipico comida lunch for farm workers: the rice, beans, plantains, overcooked meat and potato soup that we are well and truly sick of.

Tejo consist of little packets of gunpowder resting on clay and you are given heavy metal putts to throw at them to make them explode. So much fun but I was absolutely ****. I totally blame the alcohol.
