Cheese and dairy products in general are one of my favorite things to eat. So when I learned via Querétaro’s robust tourism board of a nearby farm that combined cheese-making with a barnyard animal petting zoo, it seemed like a no-brainer. The fact that it was basically a simulated visit to the Midwest was just [...]

One of my favorite parts of my trip my recent Oaxaca trip via Mexico Today turned out to be the visit we made to the small town of San Martín Tilcajete. When John & I visited Oaxaca back in 2009, we’d heard from friends about all the little villages specializing in various handicrafts that are [...]
As part of my continuing “Live Vicariously Through My Friends in Mexico” program, I wanted to alert y’all to some upcoming events in DF, Quintana Roo, and Hidalgo state that I thought may be worth checking out. Rest assured I continue to keep my finger on the pulse of kitschy activities despite my absence from [...]
Some things are so important to alert my readers to that I have to emerge from my 2-month blog hibernation to do so. Any guesses what could possibly make that exclusive priority list? The Feria Nacional del Burro, of course!!

Two years of living in Mexico has opened my eyes to a whole new level of involvement between pigs & your daily food intake. The sheer number of chicharrones (fried piggie skins) on [...]
Let me start by saying: Feria Nacional del Burro 2010 *exceeded* our expectations. Get ready for some heavy photo coverage, folks. As I mentioned on Thursday, I’d gotten wind of this Burro Festival on Twitter, and after seeing how witty their website was, I had no choice but to go. Besides, having a [...]
Trying to keep up with the young hipsters of today, I created a Twitter account several months back & vaguely monitor my fellow “Twitteros” (as they are called here in Mexico). While parsing through Twitter’s mountain of 140-character data bursts is truly a “diamond in the rough” kind of situation, every now and then I [...]
I’m sure you’ve all heard the rumors– “it’s too scary to go to Mexico City; there are dangers lurking around every corner; blah, blah, blah.” Well, I suppose it’s time we confess the truth. We had a narrow escape this past weekend here in Mexico City.
John totally almost got eaten by an oversized chameleon.
Luckily John managed [...]
