I thought it might be fun for you to see some of the products we consume in Bolivia and how they are packaged. So, here we go....
We have lots of products that come in bags. It makes sense really. There is less waste.

BTW how we make sour cream is to leave one of these out overnight for it to sour and then whip it and add juice of a lime...it´s not quite the same consistancy as sour cream in the States, but it works.

the kids love juice bags
Our milk comes in bags that are almost one liter. Can you imagine how many of these we have to buy? I know the people at the store think we are buying for an orphanage. ;^)
When I was taking this picture the little girls asked me why and I told them to show people how our milk comes in Bolivia. They asked how it comes in the US. I told them either in cartons or in plastic containers a little like 2 liter Coke bottles. They replied "How weird!".
The juice we drink comes in one liter boxes too. Here is orange juice and peach juice. It´s much yummier than any juice we ever had in the States. Jake says no matter how long he lives here or when he goes back, he´ll never get over how good the juice is here.
