my only question: when do they decide to eat the bird?

First night in Guatemala City was, well, "interesting." stayed in a hostel and met this really cool family who ran a restaurant out of the back of their home. the meal was beans, rice, and chicken and I was so hungry i really could have been eating cardboard and it wouldn't have mattered. a bird sat in the corner and watched me the whole time. manuel, the owner, said one day it flew in through the metal gates he uses to ward off the criminals. the bird has yet to leave.
