I walked to the organic market this morning in Xochimilco, Mercado Pochote. It is in the grounds of a church, and at noon, just as I was about to head back down the hill, a voice came out over a microphone and reminded us of the Virgin Mary and the need for prayer.

Returning to the posada with my new favorite food a bocadillo de papa (mmmm! deep fried potatoes and chiles and a tiny bit of cheese) along with a rice and vegetable “”hamburger,” and a piece of very veggie—onions, garlic, peppers, spinach, and tomatoes— flatbread, I found I appeared funny to people watching me try to balance my bounty while taking photos of some of the new murals.
