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 Popular

Just back from a wonderful lunch at La Popular.  I wanted to try another torta, a Tuxtepecana, ham, pinapple, quesillo, tomato, avocado.
Spixl had chiles en nogada, but I will let her tell you how delicious it was, but it was fantastic, muy rico!  I mentioned that the place was colorful.
Everything is color coordinated right down to the condiment bowls, which went very nicely with our mango juice.
Even though they have only been open two months the place is quite popular.  Oh and the name La Popular is best translated as "of/from/for the people, pueblos.  I guess in norteamericano slang it would be "street"  as in the place is not for the elites, it has "street cred." Here's the main reason why, Chef Israel Cruz Correa.  He really is good, a young master.
 La Popular is and deserves to be, very popular.
