In a former post, I mentioned the fact that the people here eat termites. They call them flying termites. I am sure you were wondering how they tasted. Well they aren’t too bad. I think they kind of taste like bacon. I was thinking that since we didn’t have bacon bits here we could just add termites to our salad and that would do about the same thing. What I really like is adding bacon bits to baked potatoes so maybe next time I will just add a few termites and see what that does. It amazes me how much of a treat it is for the people in town to get them. It is like Americans having their favorite flavor of ice cream.

Below is a picture of a bowl full of termites and then a picture of Dean Hamby, the Assistant Director of Macedonia World Baptist Missions, eating termites. Yummy!
