Tepotzteco

Filed under: mexico — by ichabodisitchy @ 10:53 pm

As planned, we went off to Tepotzlan yesterday, where Lewis & the boys climbed to the top of a big mountain to see an old pyramid, Tepotzteco, whilst my brother and I wandered around the town’s Saturday market sampling local delicacies and looking for last minute christmas presents…

The mountain is covered in small animals that in Brasil we call coatis (not sure what they’re called in English or Spanish):

 Today we’re immersed in christmas preparations– had much fun trying to ‘infuse’ the ham with honey, which essentially consisted of my mother getting a giant syringe from the local pharmacy, filling it up with honey and injecting this giant ham from every which direction. But every time she stuck the needle in and squirted the honey in, it came shooting out from one of the other holes!

Goodness knows what it’ll taste like 🙂
