I’m interested in your opinions and experiences. Mexico has rich cultures, foods and music; which do you like? Let’s talk.
Do you like Mexican food? Which is your favorite dish?
My answer: Yes, I do. I love chicken mole, chicken with a rich chocolate, tomato and nut sauce. I like tamales a lot. A tamal is made of corn, often with meat and chiles added, and cooked in corn husks. I love cajeta, goat’s milk caramel, and flan.
Have you visited Mexico? Where did you go? Or where might you like to visit?
My answer: Yes, I traveled to Mexico City, Mérida, Piedras Negras and Cozumel. In Mexico City I saw Diego Rivera murals, el Zócalo and Chapultepec Park. I’d like to visit Oaxaca to see the traditional handicrafts and taste their special mole sauces.
If you could go to one show on a trip to Mexico, would you see:
- Folkloric Dancers
- Ranchera Music
- Light show at Maya pyramids
My answer: I would have trouble choosing between the dancers and the light show. I think the dancers would win my vote. I love the regional costumes, music and pair dances.
What kind of vacation do you prefer?
- On the beach with a book
- Exploring Maya pyramids
- Scuba diving in cenote water caves
My answer: I am very interested in Maya pyramids, art, and history. I saw the Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon in Teotihuacan outside Mexico City and climbed to the top of them for the vista. I also went on a tour from Mérida that included Uxmal and Chichen Itzá. I’m interested in visiting Palenque in Chiapas one day.
Which do you choose? Gracias for your comments. ¡Olé! –Rebecca
