Hooray! I found hiding in my cloud some pictures I thought were lost because I put them on the computer and the computer died. So here they are:
This is at the second archaeological site we went to in the town of Mitla. Unlike Mount Alban, this place was not two thousand years old, but like 500 years old, so it was kind of less impressive. But these stairs were really steep.
And here are some giant bloody agave piñas and the stone wheel they use to grind it up after it’s been smoked. The wheel is pulled around by a donkey.
Oaxacan chocolate, (it was just the straight chocolate so it’s not sweet but has great chocolate flavor; maybe make it sweet and that’s your sweetener), fresh ginger, lime (maybe?) and mezcal. The mistake the dude made was making the chocolate powder into a water/ chocolate mixture and the whole thing just ended up watery. And the ginger was still in chunks and sank to the bottom quickly. So don’t make those mistakes and it should be good.
See the blond dude on the left? And the devil’s pitchfork?
I hope you have a better idea of how great Oaxaca is now!
