Roadside Chicharrón

A roadside restaurant/cafe on the road near Cochabamba, Bolivia. It is common, especially on Sundays, to find many roadside stands selling chicharrón (fried pork or other meat).The meat is fried over a fire in a fifty gallon drum. It is served with mote (hominy style corn), beer or soft drinks in enamel or tin dishes/bowls. Inca Kola was a popular locally bottled soft drink, not a cola actually, but a cream soda. Great memories.

Oil on canvas, 9 x 12 inches. At home in Houston, Texas.
