    Zach's Bio:
    I am a Senior Global, Cultural and Language Studies major, with a Spanish minor. I am also taking the prerequisites for PA school, which I plan to attend after undergrad. Due to my diverse area of study I usually have to spend quite a bit of time studying, but after hitting the books I can always find something to do here at CSS. You can usually find me hanging out at the rock wall in the BWC but as soon as the snow hits I take every chance I can to get out to Spirit Mountain. I’m enjoying life now and I’m excited to see what CSS has for me in the future!

Strange foods

Some people say that the best way to experience a different culture is through food and drink. I have come to realize this to be true throughout my stay in Ecuador and especially over his past weekend in a little river town called Coca. My class stopped here for the night on our trip to the Amazon and we were fortunate enough to taste some of the local grub, which were quite literally, grubs. We tried out some coconut grubs that are found in the bark of a coconut palm and are then skewered and grilled like a shish kebob, river tilapia that was wrapped and grilled in a palm leaf, and live ants fresh out of the tree. And out of all three, I would have to give the award to the ants. They are called ormigas de limón, or lemon ants, and they held quite strongly to their name with a strong, sweet, lemony taste that was accompanied with a nice squishy texture.
-check out the photos of the grub (Unfortunately I don’t have any pictures of the ants, but trust me, I robbed that tree of its ants)
