Holiday Gift Guide

As Hideko always says, "Simple is Best". Here I was, walking around the main square in Oaxaca, stuffed from a massive breakfast, but this blue tin tub spewing hot oil was calling my name.

This was the best dessert 50 pesos could buy (or something ridiculously cheap like that). If you were walking by this cart, you couldn't resist it either.
