World Class Orange Juice

I was out in the market at about 6:45 this morning, and there was a man there with a push cart selling freshly squeezed orange juice. I asked him how much it was and he said 2.5 Bs, which is like $0.17, for a glass. I said sure and he immediately went to work peeling and squeezing four oranges. The whole process took about a minute and a half! When was done I gave him the coins and he gave me possibly the best tasting glass of orange juice I’ve ever had in my life. When we finally do head back to the United States I´m really going to miss the great juices here!

One thought on “World Class Orange Juice

  1. My absolute favorite moment in Bolivia was one morning, when I was running late – my house mother insisted I sit down for breakfast. Then, without hesitation, she used a dish to squeeze 3 oranges to make me a glass of OJ. It was so serene how she did it, and it made me realize just how hustled we can get in the mornings in America.
