"Puerta del Mar." There were only two main entrances to the original fortified city of Campeche, Mexico. This photo peers into the old city above the the first entrance which they named the "Sea Gate" entrance. Can you guess what they called the second gate?⠀
“Tostaditos de Seso” Here’s one you won’t see every day. Well... if you head down to El Mercado de San Francisco, you’d have a better chance of finding it everyday. “Tostaditos de Seso.” A folded tortilla stuffed with pig brain, then deep fried. What do you think? Give it a go?
Tostadas de Seso (fried tortillas stuffed with big brain)
There are two types of people in this world, people that like their candy sweet and people that like their candy with salt and chilli powder. Personally, I’ve always leaned towards the latter. What kind of person are you?
Back in January I attended an event sponsored by “Fundacion Cielo” in the rural Mayan town Chicán. The event was called “Convivencia de familias” which brought together families from the big city of Merida with families from Chicán. Together the kids built a mini community library and donations were distributed of clothes, food, toys, and household goods. Great to see families from two entirely different worlds come together and enjoy the day.
The church in the "Parque de Santiago" in Merida, Mexico. It’s easy to fall in love with Merida. Bigger than Cancun, Merida is the largest city in the Yucatan Peninsula and yet I feel like it's still somewhat below the radar as a tourist destination. Who here has heard of Merida and have you been?⠀
