FOOD IN MEXICO

Feb 24, 2014by tracey Comments

Having grown up in Southern California I have always loved Mexican food.  I can’t take any of it too spicey. But I appreciate all of it. I love going to the markets and stands where the people gather to eat their meals. There you really see the foods of the land.

Yesterday we stopped in a mercado that had tables set up and food stands serving up what seemed to be everyone’s favorite dishes.

I also love the stalls on the streets.  Like everything else her the colors jump out.
