Christmas Lamb

Being summer here on Christmas, the traditional meal seems to involve an awful lot of grilling, and as lamb is a specialty in Patagonia, it features heavily on the menu. Whole skinned lambs hang in the supermarkets, and it is not uncommon to see a person walking down the street with the entire carcass, head and all, slung over his shoulder.

Hier im Sommer an Weihnachten scheint man traditionell sehr gerne zu grillen, mit Lamm als Spezialität in Patagonien auf den Menükarten. In den Supermärkten ist es nicht unnormal, eine ganzes gehäutetes Lamm hängen zu sehen (mit Gesicht und Augen!) und auf der Straße kann es auch passieren, dass man jemandem mit einem ganzen Gerippe über der Schulter tragend begegnet…

    Brian wanted me to mention that “we had lamb, too!” – but somehow, I feel that it’s an entirely different experience. 🙂
