Greetings again from the Sun Village resort in the Dominican Republic. My wife's biological father has schizophrenia (we visited him twice) and her mother has lupus. I'm treating her mother to a day at this resort, but the Maxim models are still here!
"Quipe" (kipe) was sold by a street vendor outside a huge department store in Santiago. Quipe is a popular Dominican food and most of the Google cites seem to be Dominican, but the dish's origins seem to be in the Middle East.
