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.

More food, fabulous food....

Of course, I had to go back to the Plaza de la Danza for the second day of first ever Festival of Regional Cocineras.  It was just too good to not return.... I would go every day if the event was a week long.  There were so many taste treats to try, like the torta pictured above, with homemade sausage and all the fixins'.  A perfect sandwich!  And then this wonderful tamale stuffed with cheese and beef.
It was such a pleasure to see so many people enjoying all the different foods from all over the state.  Every region was represented.  It was impossible to try everything. 
But everything sure was tempting, like these memelitas....
A nieve with the flavors lime and the very traditional leche quemada (burnt milk)... mmmm... so good.
This is the traditional shot of a politician eating something for all the cameras.  In this case she is Ivette Morán de Murat, the governor's wife.
I love the look on the face of the cocinera as she takes a bite. That's a look lots of chefs know... "It's good, isn't it?... Isn't it??""
¡Viva Oaxaca! on its 485th Anniversary.... let's keep eating!
