El Submarino...genius

If the world cup wasn't enough to convince you of the genius of the Argentinians and Uruguayans, check out how they make hot chocolate.

Submerge an entire bar of chocolate into a glass of hot leche. (That's Spanish for milk--can you tell how well my lessons are coming along?) Said leche can contain vanilla, but it's not vital.

Give it a good stir, and if you're an absolute hedonist add the packets of sugar that are kindly provided. Continue on with the stirring until the chocolate bar has disolved. Marvel at the ingenuity of South Americans.

    About the tweet to the right-what was the back packe's definition of "Englishness"? Whining, or "whinging" as I think they call it?

  4. All pretty standard stuff--talking about much they love to queue and how bad everyone else in the world is at it. How much they hate Israelis, etc.

  5. Good ice cold goodness! Reminds me of halo halo food from the Philippines.
