Thanks for the info. The link should be working now.

 

I've been to Mexico twice, most recently for 3 months last fall. It's one of my favorite countries for the food, cultures, history, diversity, etc. I've been throughout most of central Mexico and the Yucatan, but not to Tijuana, which I've heard is very different from the rest of the country. 

 

Your time in the Yucatan sounds wonderful--a little bit of everything! I was in Oaxaca for Day of the Dead festivities. It was magical! Lots of street bands and dancers (comparsas), and altars set up everywhere--hotels, stores, restaurants, etc. It's especially amazing at night. I didn't get a chance to take a cooking class when there, but that would be great. Oaxaca is known for its seven types of moles. The yellow mole was a favorite of mine.

Hi @VoyagerVicki. That link isn't working. At least I can't get Safari to open the page, instead citing too many redirects. FWIW and all. Smiley Happy

 

Yes, I've been to Mexico. I visited Tijuana a few times as a young adult living in California. Aside from the pottery I can't say I was terribly impressed.

 

DH and I spent time in a small Yucatan fishing village, buying fish direct from fishermen and cooking up a fabulous storm in our rented house. While in the area we visited the numerous Mayan sites and enjoyed a few drives through the jungle. We found the textiles and arts in this part of Mexico to be of good quality, the people to be gracious, and the sights to be spellbinding. We snorkeled; enjoyed street fairs and music; took long walks on the gorgeous beaches: visited resorts and learned a boatload of Mayan history. A most awesome trip.

 

I want to visit Oaxaca in no small part for the distinct food. I'd like to go take a cooking class while there. I mean, I have a number of Oaxaca specific cookbooks, but ... oh to be there learning local cuisine with totally authentic ingredients. Yes, please. Smiley Happy
