... as it had been abandoned and was covered in dirt, trees & cactus. It sits just under 2000m looking out over the valleys and has spectacular views. The pyramids and building are awesome and we were so lucky to have a local archaeologist who is attached to one of the major US University show us around. He gave us so much insight into the life and times. The culture was very similar to the Aztecs, Mayans and ...

Anyway, after taste testing chapulines (grasshoppers soaked in lime and salt), new fruits like the Zapote negro, different chiles and cheeses we made our way back to the restaurant. There we made tortilla, salsas, squash blossoms, brown mole, basically a three course meal plus dessert! I was most taken by the sheer variety of ingredients they put in one dish. Our mole alone had 16 or 17 ingredients - 2 types of dried peppers, platano, garlic, cinnamon, onion, ...

One of the reasons we chose hotel Florida was in the reviews everyone raved about the free breakfast being amazing. I was very much looking forward to it, after a good nights sleep we went out to the hotel restaurant. You can chose from about 6 different breakfasts, we chose the Americana which consisted of freshly squeezed orange juice, coffee or tea, a plate of fresh mixed fruit salad, 2 hot cakes with jam or maple syrup and 2 eggs sunny side ...

Monte Alban, chocolate tamales and tlayduas

A travel blog entry by tannerhall on Jun 29, 2013

Then we had some pretty average 1L pineapple juices, then french fries with buffalo sauce and cheese, and then finally we stopped off at Wingbox to watch the Confederations Cup final (Brazil beat Spain 3-0) and eat some of the best wings I've ever tasted (chipotle sauce) and a Corona. Still not satisfied from all that grazing, ...
