The here and now... and what and why

Complacency is a trap. At least that’s what I was thinking when I up and left the comfort of a Yankee prep school gig, where I taught music, amongst other things, for 28 years. There was also that life long career as a composer, musician and artist.

First, it was a year in St. Thomas, USVI, working as a reporter and shooting photography and then, a year in San Agustin Etla, Oaxaca, Mexico.
Time passed.
More time passed and a year back in the Athens of America followed by a hasty return to Oaxaca where it is all happening.
A couple of years in San Sebastian Etla and now, just down the road in San Pablo Etla. Life is good.

You can find my music on Jango (World & latin - Worldbeat) and at iTunes and most online stores.

Let's have class outside...

I can remember students asking me the same question, but it was never anything like this.  With all the annual gastronomic events that have grown in size and popularity, Oaxaca's cuisine is getting even more famous and consequently, more and more young people are interested in learning the finer aspects of cooking.
Under the large palms just to the south of Santo Domingo, various cooks are presenting a series of cooking demonstrations. 
I don't know what he was making, but there was chocolate involved
How nice to be able to attend a class and record it for future reference.
When I walked by an hour later, a different chef was offering a lesson.

 Gotta love it.  Oaxaca doing what it does best!  Being Oaxacan and proud of it!
