What's for dinner you ask?

see for yourself... No. I'm not joking.
As I sit here comfy in my room, this poor, doomed iguana sleeps in a yellow bucket in the front yard. He has no idea this is his last night on earth. I seriously feel really bad. BUT... they (some local men) caught this wild iguana and are eager to cook it for us. It's not an uncommon meal here, so what can I say? Adios Iguana.

***UPDATE***
Just moments ago the iguana escaped from the bucket and ran through the backyard and disappeared into the vegetation.


The Good News: No iguana for dinner.
The Bad News: There's an iguana running free outside of my house.

***UPDATE AGAIN***
Nevermind, they just found him and brought him back. ARG.

Oh my goodness! Poor Iguana!! I had a pet Iguana growing up and wow never would have though that people eat them!!

Lindsey said...

Oh dear, I did think you were joking, lol. I can just see myself sneaking out to free the iguana in the middle of the night... naw, I don't think I really would. ;-) I'm curious to know what it tastes like and how it's going to be prepared!

Paige said...

Jayne said...

Hmmm - when traveling I always try to eat the local fare so I would try it but the thought it not appealing! Let us know how it tastes :)

Your kidding! Since I'm one of the pickiest eaters in the world... Hmmm... I don't think I would do that.

Let us know what it taste like.

Poor iguana, and he's so cute! I never would've thought of people eating them. You'll have to let us know what you think!

Christina said...

What an amazing (and hilarious)range of issues you deal with in the course of the day. Can't wait to hear about the final fate of your iguana. Oh to be a fly on the wall!

Jenchik said...

Wauuu.
I'am happy for iguana :-))

BlondeBlogger said...

Oh, poor thing!!! I was all happy when I read that he escaped only to be sad when he was caught again. I would never be able to survive in the wild because I'd feel too bad for all the animals, lol.

Miranda said...
