Nice Bit of Titti and Fanny Anyone?!

image

How could we resist a bit of Titti and Fanny to satisfy our hunger? I mean who in their right mind would pass up this opportunity?! My husband, who was still just my boyfriend at the time, and I found these dubiously named snacks whilst travelling in Guatemala in 2008. It was on the island of Peten in Flores, the north east of the country. Titti Chips and Fanny sardines.. for the Americans out there, fanny in England means vagina.. so the irony of naming a tin of sardines Fanny was just too much for me, i had to have them!

So after a period of absence from the blog – i have been training to be a Divemaster and then went on a long awaited trip home to England after four and a half years in Mexico – i am back, and will aim to post regularly again. Recipes and food stuff, maybe some travel pics and anything interesting from my life here in sunny Manzanillo, Mexico.

By the way this post is also a test to see how the quick post option works from my tablet.. so who knows what it will turn out like as i cannot preview it.

Hasta pronto amigos

Dirty Dancing Cops Gettin’ Down at Colima Surf Side, Manzanillo.

Dirty Dancing Cops!

I just had to share this video of the Policia Municipal getting down while directing the holiday traffic. My hubby recorded this yesterday evening when we ventured out into the tourist filled streets of Santiago, Manzanillo. It is Semana Santa (Holy Week), the busiest and most important holiday in Latin America, when everybody and their dog comes to the beach no matter what!

This is at the junction just before Miramar Beach, on the corner where the Colima Surf Side Surf Shack is. The shack is run by a friend of ours, Ricardo, a semi-professional surfer and 100% Manzanillense! You can see us at the end of the video cheering 😛

Colima Surf Side Surf Shack Manzanillo, Colima. Best place in Manzanillo to learn to surf, rent boards or just hang out with surf dudes.

¡A huevo! Word of the Week and a Healthy Breakfast

Ok, so this weeks Mexican Word of the Week is more of an expression than a word. If you have ever  spent any time in Mexico it is likely you have heard someone exclaim “¡A huevo!” at some point. In Spanish huevo translates to “egg” but “a huevo” is nothing to do with our favourite breakfast staple, however, i decided to throw in a tasty, healthy breakfast idea along with this weeks’ Mexican word of the week as it’s almost the weekend and it’s going to be busy!
