We spent a day exploring the town of Samaná. Actually, searching is a better term – we were searching Samaná: our mission was to find Bob this certain delicacy he has been talking about for the last three weeks: fried pork. Problem is, it’s not just any fried pork – you see, it’s fried pork rind – basically, fried fat. It is called chicharone. I know, I know, I’m thinking what you’re thinking – gross!! But apparently it is not disgusting- it is heaven, according to Bob. So, we are doing our best to find Bob his little slice of fat-and-calorie-rich heaven on the trash-strewn streets of Samaná.
An unsuccessfull chicharone search, but a fun day nonetheless.
