Commemorating the Holy Week by enjoying the delicious Fanesca soup

Last week we commemorated the Holy Week by eating Fanesca, the famous traditional fish-soup Ecuadorians prepare every year before Eastern:

The soup consists of cod, egg and an impressive 12 types of grains, which represent and honour the 12 apostles. It takes several hours to prepare the soup, while some of the grains are really hard when they are raw...

Everybody enjoyed the typical Ecuadorian lunch a lot and it was great to be all together again!
