Our time here is quickly coming to an end, unfortunately. Our last two weeks in Mexico are extremely different – we are living on a different farm, in a different tent. The folks we are staying with at BioSana are teaching a permaculture course at a local farm and Mike is taking the course. I am not taking it, but I am helping Shenaqua cook for the course (she is an AMAZING cook). It is my first time cooking for a large group of people and shiiiiiiiit it is hard. I am learning a lot (especially about spices….Shenaqua is a genius) but am exhausted at the end of every day.
Tomorrow, a woman from town is coming in and I will get to learn how to make tortillas and mole sauce from scratch. Oh man. It will definitely be worth it, even if I end up going to bed at seven o’clock.
I will be sad to leave but I won’t mind going back to being a librarian, rather than a sous chef. 🙂
