This morning a wonderful woman named Irma met us at the school and walked us to the director’s lovely house for a cooking lesson. We talked about our options, decided to make guacamole and pozole - a traditional Mexican soup - and wrote down the recipes in Spanish as Irma dictated them.
With shopping lists in hand we headed to the market to shop for the ingredients.
Back at the house an hour later, we sanitized, chopped, boiled, simmered, shredded, combined, and eventually ate one of the tastiest meals I’ve ever helped cook. HAPPY TRAILS!
THIS BLOG WAS SET UP TO CHRONICLE OUR ADVENTURES IN MÉXICO & GUATEMALA IN 2010.
Mike and I explored the Mexican Yucatán Peninsula for 2 weeks of flyfishing (Mike), diving (Stacey), snorkeling, Maya ruins, a colonial city, cenotes, quite a few hammocks and lots of great food.
When Mike flew home I headed to San Cristóbal de las Casas in Chiapas for 2 weeks of Spanish study with a small group in tow. We lived with host families and visited area sights including villages, museums, and ruins.
When the group flew home I bused to San Pedro La Laguna on Lake Atitlán in Guatemala for a week of planning for future growth of the Beca Project (link below) and meeting our sponsored kids and their families.
When our daughter Mariah and her husband Greg invited us to share a timeshare in Quintana Roo between Christmas and New Years, a new chapter to this blog was added. HAPPY TRAILS!
