I figured I would stop sharing my food diary since I am not keeping a daily blog. I had a bit of a disturbing thing happen last week. I went and got a pedicure at lunch and was sitting in the massage chair. At most chop shops they have a television going. The travel channel was on and low and behold, Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmerman. He was visiting Chile and went to a Mapuche Ranch where it was bull castrating day. Not really what I want to watch while I am getting a pedicure. Ranch hands hold down bulls and then basically take a pair of scissors and cut its balls off. This saddened me and I found it very cruel. No anesthetizing or anything. They proceeded to make bull ball stew which also included the scrotums of the bulls. If that wasn’t enough to turn your stomach another long held tradition is bleeding the sheep out. They stick a knife behind the trachea of the sheep and bleed the sheep out but kept the sheep alive. They then proceed to eat the blood….at this point the blood is starting to coagulate. I about vomited. Just retelling the story makes me retch. I obviously would never make it on a ranch.
