Usually we don't depend on the supermarket next door for buying groceries, but it does provide us with the ingredients for a favorite meal we like to make when we're in a pinch. The ingredients we buy: a tin of sardines, pasta, bread (the rest of the ingredients are whatever vegetables we have in the house). Its a hearty pasta dish of sardines and toasted bread crumbs. The version we made last night was a spicy tomato based sauce with onions, garlic, lime juice, spinach, parsley, and parmesan. Thank you Mark Bittman.

Best Friday

Good Friday is the quietest day of the year in Mexico City. Businesses are closed, streets are empty, and the sky is clear. Kenny and I went out to the Basilica of Guadalupe today to look across the city and enjoy the fresh air. Here's the view of Iztaccíhuatl, one of the two volcanoes to the southeast.

We also had a clear shot of Torre Insignia in Tlatelolco, one of the most striking buildings in town.

screensaver mural

This is where Avenida Chapultepec dips underground at the Glorieta de Insurgentes. They just replaced the old tropical fish mural with a brand new one -bigger fish and brighter colors.
