Exploring Mexico - and it's very diverse cuisine
Hello dear readers,
We have been quiet for a while and we appologise that we haven’t done an update for some time. So thank you for sticking around :D
Our journey has taken us to Mexico where we landed in the very hot and humid clima of Yucatán. My sister Nina joined us there for two weeks. We explored the archeological sites with her and also tasted Cochinita Pibil tacos for the very first time. This is a local speciality (yes you can get it elsewhere in Mexico as well) with slow cooked pork meat in a delicious sauce (no idea so far what’s exactely in it but will find out to cook it at home as well) and it is so tender that it basically melts in your mouth… sssslllllllllllurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrppppp. Until today it is one of our favorite taco filling and to be honest I could eat it without the tortialla and just with some salsa and the delicious onions they usually serve with it. Be aware that the Mexicans eat EVERYTHING with chili. Well maybe the only exception is sweets :).
We have treavelled most distances by bus, which is first of all very economic and you get to see a lot of the country. They are not quiet as comfortable as the busses in Chile and Argentina but still very comfortable. AND: they always leave on time! This is very different than the ones in other countries;).
Mostly we used the bus company ADO (via www.clickbus.com.mx) and ETN (I find their website a litle bit complicated, but once you know what the name of your bus terminal is it is pretty much okay to handle). Some distances are to far away and we did all our flying with Interjet (www.interjet.com.mx). They suprised us with very modern and state of the art airplanes, great service and so far all flights have been on time.
So far we have visited Yucatán, Campeche, Quinta Roo, Tabasco, Chiapas, Veracruz, Oaxaca, Puebla, Mexico State, Jalisco and Michoacán. All these states have their different specialities and since we love it so much we decided to dedicate this post to the food. Of course there are our usual favorites in there as well. Therefore you will see some Pizza, Pasta and Burgers as well. Please spare us with comments such as: But that’s not mexican food because we know and - we don’t care. So go ahead and enjoy :D!
