Collecting Grubs in Ecuador

Sometimes I have to shake my head at how much work it can take to track down a handful of food. Perfect example: I spent a whole day in the Amazon rainforest, in Ecuador, scouring the trunks of dead palm trees for grubs.

Definitely worth the work... but then again, not something I'd look forward to doing every day.
