I had an opportunity to visit a weaving co-op
in the Mayan village of Zinacantán, in the state of Chiapas.
What a feast for the eyes - and as it turned out, the taste buds.
Later, after we had a chance to shop, this
woman offered to make us tacos.
She took us into her kitchen where she had started
a fire and began to pull balls of masa out of a bucket
and press them into tortillas.
Into these hot tortillas we spread roasted and ground
pumpkin seeds and chunky sea salt.
Umm, yeah, they were really good.
