While the environment was lush, the buildings gorgeous, the people friendly, and the food amazing, there was a lot of creepiness I encountered on my recent trip to Mexico that I just have to share. I give you these examples:
|Chapulines. Grasshoppers sauteed in garlic and oil. Only creepy when I was picking legs out of my teeth.|
|Agave plants. Very cool. Only creepy in that they look a bit of aliens that have descended from space in front of this Baroque church in order to hatch or suck our soil of nutrients.|
|A very tasty fruit called Granada China. Only creepy because it looks like a brain-slug and you eat it like you're doing a shot.|
|An art project? A mummy parade? I actually can't think of what's NOT creepy about this.|
I heard that in places in Mexico, women wear live bejeweled bugs on their blouses as ornamentation and that there is actually a market for portraits done of your baby on Jesus's lap. And I'll leave the creepy image of the pornographic skeleton figures to your imagination.
