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.

So good..

It is so good to be back where I can fall back into my routine of visiting these folks and getting the best and freshest fruit, cheese, juices and vegetables.  This was the morning trek to Etla and back... in order.  First, quesillo
Then avocados and tomatoes
Bananas and onions
On the way back in Santiago Etla, freshly squeezed OJ..... so good!
And just down the street, my local fruit ladies for mango and melon
And everyone was smiling and happy to see me... what a feeling!

You are so happy to back to your Mexican home and the ladies look so happy to see you and they are all proud of their produce and themselves, it shows in the photo's.
I bet the avocado's were not $1.69 each. On sale here in CT., they are $1.00 each, like that's a sale.
How cheap are they in Mexico?

I'm not sure how much things cost... however, five large tomatoes, three large avocados and two large onions were under $3 US. And to top it off, the quality is so much better than anything I found in the US.
