Ah Grasshopper!

Knowing our love of insects, a friend sent us this photo of a grasshopper swarm in Guayaquil (Ecuador) last Friday.
Apparently it’s not uncommon to find grasshoppers on sale as food in south American street markets. As vegetarians we are aware we may have to adopt our diet in the coming months, but when it comes to walking around we think we’ll be adopting a ‘mouths shut’ policy!

  1. Grasshoppers are tasty, at least when roasted. I’ve had them as bar-snacks in Korea. Surprise! Surprise! They taste like grass – who’d have believed it?
