I'm went to Oaxaca in July 2011 courtesy of the NEH to study the arrival of the Spanish from the indigenous point-of-view. I'm now plotting to return and continue researching GM corn and colonial architecture in 2013.

Please, can I have some more?

Okay, so I was quite pleased last summer that I ate chapulines (grasshoppers) twice and salsa with smoked gusanos (worms). But then I read Diana Kennedy's Oaxaca al Gusto and discovered a recipe for Mole with Black Iguana. And I realized that in the realms of adventurous eaters, I'm probably not a candidate for the next Survivor tv series.
