Cook stoves of the Caribbean coast

What’s more exciting than a photo gallery of community latrines you may ask? A photo gallery of stoves!

I recently visited the creole/miskito village of Kahkabila in the Pearl Lagoon basin and snapped a few shots of locals’ cooking equipment.

And what are they cooking up on these open-fire stoves in their shanty kitchens?


Stewed shrimp in coconut and curry sauce, fried plantains, coconut rice and beans



And for your strange photo of the day here is a shot of a cow in a panga (alive and not happy). I rode it hitching a ride back to Pearl Lagoon. The cow was destined for the slaughterhouse in Corn Island.
