On a long bus ride in Peru, I was lucky enough to get a ride in the front. The reason why this is lucky is you can see the road, get fresh air, avoid the gas fumes and you are not packed in like sardines like the rest of the folks in the back of the bus. I decided to make friends and shared my chocolate with the driver and a women sitting next to me. She in return, gave me a handful of nuts that she was munching on. Of course I accepted. Well for the next hour, I am sucking in this nut because I am afraid I was going to break my teeth. This women had no problem as she just kept popping them into her mouth. The interesting part, was that was my first introduction to the Sacha Inchi nut. Apparently good snack food for some, but I prefer it in an oil (already pre-chewed).
