The last time I was in the community I am working with in the southern Amazonian region of Peru, there was a ceremony for kids graduating from kindergarten.

Either baked in one of the few mud ovens around the community or just sealed up in molds and cooked over heat on gas burners, the cakes were walked thru a heavy rain to the community building. These funky looking, nuclear colored American totems struck me as an interesting note showing the current waves of globalization washing over our shrinking world.
