The day I got paid with sex for eating a guinea pig in Ecuador (Truths and lies). Weekend-Engagement writing prompts: WEEK 136
Hi friends, it's a pleasure to participate in this new #weekend-engagement edition organised by @galenkp.
Many years ago....
Many years ago, my previous job was very similar to my current job and I was involved in executing trade visits and conferences at congresses across five continents.
As a travel lover myself, having a job that paid you a significant amount of money per month and at the same time being able to travel anywhere in the world with all expenses paid was an incredible experience. Especially when you told your friends in town one weekend that next week you couldn't meet up with them because you had to leave, as was the case during a trip I had to go to Sydney.
During my stay in Sydney, I had a great time visiting places like the opera or seeing animals as peculiar as koalas or kangaroos.
I remember, there my friend Fred when we were at the zoo seeing a kangaroo asked me if I would like to try kangaroo meat and that same night he invited me to a kangaroo meat burger at a restaurant called Moo Gourmet Burgers. Obviously, I didn't turn down the invitation and as I eat everything, I had a fabulous burger.
Why are you talking about Sydney and kangaroos?
You may wonder why I am talking about Sydney and eating kangaroo, if in the title of the post I talk about eating a guinea pig for sex in Ecuador. The reason is that during my stay in Australia I received overnight a call from the company that I had to go urgently to Ecuador. You can imagine what a change of culture, but I did not hesitate and accepted the challenge to go to Ecuador in the course of 3 days.
Ecuador: Contrast of culture, cuy and sex
Well, 3 days after being in Sydney eating a delicious kangaroo burger, for work reasons I found myself doing a fair in the city halfway around the world, in Ecuador. It is a magical place, although it was stiflingly hot the day I was there as a speaker at a fair selling new technologies. There I also enjoyed the impressive monuments such as the half-world monument and the cute animals such as the llamas.
However, as far as culinary tastes were concerned, it was quite a contrast when I saw some guinea pigs being barbecued at some food stalls, which if I remember correctly the local people called them "cuy".
I pretended to want to die of disgust seeing some kind of giant rat and people buying them at the stalls to eat them. Knowing that I was dying of disgust, a co-worker called Maria made me the following indecent proposal.
Maria: "Shall we go to bed tonight if you eat half a cuy?"
I was single at the time, without a partner and Maria was really attractive and I didn't hesitate for a second to eat the guinea pig knowing that for dessert I would have Maria all night long to enjoy without limits until dawn.
I have to say, I had previously tasted cuy on another visit to Ecuador. The taste of it is similar to rabbit, to barbecue.
Was Maria unaware that I had no qualms about eating cuy, or perhaps she knew I ate it and was looking for an excuse to sleep with me? Maria has never wanted to reveal this doubt to me.
Let's see if you can find the lie.

I hope the Maria/Cuy story is one of the truths! 🤣
You are right.
If you look at my fecabook you will see in which years I have travelled to these countries😂😂😂😂
Thank goodness for Maria and her generous ways. ✅
Maria was very much Maria.
I might read it later 😂😂😂😂.
I'm going to stop talking before I get into a mess with my current partner.

The crazy things you do for sex. But I think there was no indecent proposal unless Maria was the one selling the cuy. But Maria was a co-worker… So that is the lie there!
You are not on the right track.
It is difficult to be in Austria and Ecuador in 3 days. Even those two trips were not in the same year.
Im happy for you that there was really an indecent proposal for you. 😂
I didn't know how to put the lie into the story and so I had to introduce the story with the trip to Sydney.
OMG! You liar!😂😂😂 That was fun!

Best of all, you ate twice hahaha. Those options don't come along every day.
I thought the kangaroo meat burger was a lie...How can they eat such a cute animal....
The lie is that I was in Sydney in 2008 and in Ecuador in 2010.
My mind would not be able to cope with such a brutal time change in 3 days.
By the way, kangaroo is very tasty, but the truth is that it is also endearing. The same goes for veal and I always go for a good roast.
Hahaha for the asado I can go with you, I'm not ready for those typical dishes from other regions yet.
Your publication was entertaining
Thank you my friend @lisrl26
Your "interview" with @galenkp is also very good.
@galenkp: Kangaroo meat is tasty if you find the right restaurant?
Kangaroo meat is reasonably good, a lean meat that needs to be cooked medium-rare (or there abouts) to be tasty. It's widely available in supermarkets, but not widely eaten for some reason. I'm not a huge fan of it but have had a few good bits. Restaurants have it and generally do a good job.
I remember it as a meat with very little fat. Actually, being in a hamburger, it is possible that the spices would have changed the taste.
What I am sure is that it was better than the Cuy. But that night I had a worse dessert😅😅😅
There is an old saying:
There's only one moment in which eating Cuy is legitimate...that's when Maria is offering dessert.
Ok, I just made that up.
That kangaroo would take revenge for the piece of meat I ate🤭🤭🤭🤭🤭.
As of the moment I actually cannot distinguish which is which, but your story made me read your blog very very slowly, hahaha!
