Scavenging La Paz

“Why is the peanut soup white,” asks Noel Peng, 18 year old Palo Alto native who can’t seem to catch a break and is just looking for answers. ”MMMMmmm, riveting” she continues, still perplexed as to why the delicious sopa mani, a Bolivian soup with peanutty broth and noodles, the main attraction of our lunch earlier today, is a soft, pure shade of white. ”And speaking of weird questions,” chimes in Rowan Pierson, the potato-peeling teenage heartthrob, who has some questions of his own that need answering, ”what’s up with the llama fetuses hanging from the ceiling in the witch’s market? I mean, I don’t really know what a llama fetus is supposed to look like, but surely that can’t be it?” And so, once again, Los Dragones are left with more questions than answers, in this fast-paced, scintillating, all-or-nothing La Pazien adventure.
