Those might be delicious but they don't look appetizing to me. Something about battleship grey food.


I think they look appetizing but in the end I much prefer white or yellow corn to the blue or even red.

Keep posting, keep posting while you are still on a pajarete high. Joan took charge of everything very nicely once able to escape to us. You weren't missed all that much. But the photos, oh my, more please.


Ha! Joan's blood pressure went back to almost normal when Steve showed up at the warehouse this morning. Why, I had to have my hair cut and colored this morning before he arrived just so I wouldn't frighten him with all the gray that came out while he was gone!

The parade in Uruapan on Saturday marked the opening of the annual all-Michoacán Feria de Artesanía. Artisans from many towns paraded while carrying examples of their products.


A few stills from the parade:

Cristina: your photos are a treasure. To be a good photographer of people is a gift, and you have it. I especially love the woman making gorditas: the lighting and composition are so nice.


Thank you for sharing these. More, please.
