A OAXACAN IN NEW BRUNSWICK

Saludos a todos…
 
I wanted to share a quick note about Manuel’s trip to Canada.  He flew into Toronto the other day where friends met him and whisked him  over to New Brunswick!  He’s really getting a kick out of the snow, as you might imagine, and I wanted to share this picture of him on his first snoeshoe walk!
 
 
 
His comment:  “When a Mexican travels to another country I think what he misses most are his foods–our authentic Mexican foods that are so natural and healthy.  What I am missing most are nopales, the fresh cresses and mallows cut out in the country that I buy from the market on wheelsthat parks near my house, plus simply cooked potatoes and beans.  Thinking of my favorite Mexican foods, I can imagine how impressed visitors to your kitchen must be!
 
I have to say they have great whole grain breads here that I’m really enjoying.  The culture is Acadian, which is filled with music, poetry, literature etc. so you know I’m having a great time.”
 
 How small is the world?  Manuel met a lady from New Brunswick when he was studying Reiki on the Oaxacan coast.  She invited him to visit her in Canada.
 
Meanwhile, a really great couple came to a series of classes recently.  They have a very innovative and cool-sounding restaurant , The Tide & Boar Gastropub… in Moncton, New Brunswick.  They gave me their card, though they said it was unlikely I’d ever wind up in that corner of the world.
 
Turns out Manuel is staying with his friend in Shediac, about 20 minutes away!
 
Here’s to Manuel and his home state of Oaxaca, and to Canada and New Brunswick!  Warm Cabo wishes to all!
 
¡Provecho!
Donna
