identidad : somos negros de la costa :: oaxaca mexico

am going to write more on mexico and more particularly oaxaca
back in 2006 i was in oaxaca for something we wont discuss right now 🙂 and was quite pleased at the reception i received
a family even put me up in their house to live
the skin colouration of this part of mexico was quite dark and different that the other ‘mexico’ but i was there for other matters and didnt take time to explore the coastal region
at the time i had no idea that an afro mexican community was a few clicks down the road towards the pacific


food – centro, mexico city

anyone who tells you street food is bad for you is recklessly endangering your life. listen to them and perish

can’t remember what they called this thing. but take one each lunch time. you’ll feel good about yourself

i found a lady selling this outside the fence on the right side of the cathedral [if you facing bldg]

tlacoyo dinner, mexico city zocalo

dinner zocalo mexico city

i can’t help myself i looooove buying food from street vendors and they are PLENTIFUL in mexico…i’ve not had any problems eating…try this at home kids
this is called tlacoyo…pre.hispanic mexican food am told
the white stuff is cheese…dont know the name of the dark green veg…taste kinda like an olive but it looks like a green string bean…there’s red bean of some sort and plenty more vegetables under there…no crazy cow disease to worry about here
4 pesos…equivalent 33 cents approx
one fills me up
the dinner feels more like one of those wrap things you get from mid eastern or greek food places..PITA! lol … it’s made from corn [mexico is the home of corn. lots of coloured varieties]
the women…[it’s all women doing the work in mexico it seems…the guys are in jesusland] the women cook and sell all day on the streets with their children…occasionally the flaw comes by and chase and harass them

off to get another and do some writing
