Eating Good in Guatemala

I'm going on Month Four in Guatemala, and have now become accustomed to beans for breakfast with a spicy salsa. Tamales are a filling and tasty complement, or a few corn tortillas. I was initially quite scared of the blue corn tortillas (my fridge at home has some like that, but they've been there a while), but now I devour them gleefully.

Guatemala is a veritable Vegetarian's Paradise. The beans are warm and plentiful, and the meat substitutes are very realistic. I had to have three of my omnivore friends try my Orale vegetarian tacos in Panajachel before I would taste them, because it looked so beef-like.
