McDonalds is everywhere

McDonalds is everywhere

What do you call a McDonalds drive-through in Guadalajara, Mexico? Apparently, “Auto Mac”?  That’s a new one. And no, we did not partake...

Eating Vegan in Latin America

Eating Vegan in Latin America

Much of Latin-American cooking is admittedly not vegetarian or vegan-friendly. Alas, before I moved south I purchased a vegan cookbook, entitled “Viva Vegan”. It took me about half a year to make anything beyond just a classic red sauce to pour over rice and beans (which is heavenly, and worth the book purchase alone!). Many of her recipes require forethought (such as, I would like to make ___, so I...

The flavor at this particular tamale place didn’t tickle my taste-buds, but I loved...

Yukatan, Mexico Trip Day 1

Yukatan, Mexico Trip Day 1

We started our big month-long Yukatan trip on December 10th, a few days later than originally planned. Ella´s school changed their exam dates, and we decided to roll with it instead of insisting on them giving them to her as scheduled. You win some-you lose some. The first day we drove just east of Puebla. There is a LOT to see in Puebla, and we simply couldn´t even begin to fit that in on this trip....
