This month our book club read Lost in the Jungle by Yossi Ghinsberg.  The book will be released as a movie and everyone enjoyed the harrowing trip into the amazon with Yossi.  Apparently it is a guys book and a great gift for the men in your life, but our club gave it an excellent rating and we are exclusively a women’s book club in our neighborhood.

Our hostess Clara (the one with the loquat tree in her yard) served a sensory delight of foods and one of his survival foods Tamarind.

Tamarind is the healthy equal to sour gummy worms. I could not stop eating them last night.  They would replace popcorn during a movie with all the tactile work involved. You crack them open and a delicious fruit waits inside. The consistency is a little like a fig. The taste is both sour and sweet.
