Street Food in Bolivia - The Chola Sandwich

The chola sandwich (I will explain more about cholas later) is my favorite street eat in Bolivia. Roasted pork, pickled vegetables, lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, mayo and hot sauce on a bun. These things are lethal, both for the stomach and the arteries.  The one I ate in Santa Cruz may have been hanging out in the sun for several hours but it was delicious. No regrets. I just wouldn't eat before getting on a long bus ride.

 There was no fat trimmed off this sandwich. My heart doesn't like it when I eat these.

This sandwich also came with some fried pig skin 

Roasted pork sandwiches sold from a small street stand- Its good thing
