The foods here in Guatemala is different then ours. In our culture dinner is the main and biggest meal, but in Guatemala lunch is. Tortillas are eaten with every meal here, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They do not have a designated dessert time, and eat sweets in the day time. Some Guatemalans grow their own food and raise their own animal, but most buy food from the market. Chicken is also part of their diets if they can afford it. Since Guatemala is closer to the equator there is more biodiversity, which means lots of exotic fruits. We`re also near a lake so there are lots of fish caught and eaten. Bread is also a big part of their diet. Patrona has done a great job making us three meals a day, and all the students have liked the food so far.
