Little Rebecca Visits the Andes

In which I get a taste of future obsessions.

Thanks to my dad for unearthing my new favorite picture, taken during our family vacation to Washington DC in 1992. Which we visited largely to see this special quincentennial exhibit at the Smithsonian, called Seeds of Change. Something about the botanical and culinary influences of the New World on the Old World. Mostly it blew my mind that no one in Italy ever saw a tomato until a few hundred years ago. And, bonus, I got an early start on learning about terraced potato farming.
