Cusco, Peru - Amy Laden, Interplast staff: Our lunches: after Gilda and I spent two mornings shopping for lunches for the team, the hospital nutritionist, Ana Maria, appeared to offer her help. She brought us sample menus, and we selected several. We began on Thurs., with a delicious local dish called causa (mashed potatoes, shredded chicken, lime, mayonnaise, and avocado shaped like a little round layer cake). We had been spending about $50 a day for lunches and drinks, and we’re now spending about $15 to feed 20 people (the local scrub nurses and helpers are eating with us). Jose is our cook and he shops for ingredients too, so that we’re relieved of the hours it was taking to shop each morning.
