I'll be heading to San Miguel de Allende and then on to Mexico City for several days in March. A couple of friends will be joining me in lieu of Mama Chihuahua this time so it will be a different sort of trip...less shopping and more tequila.

I've heard through the grapevine during this past year that Mexico City is becoming one of the hippest, most cosmopolitan new IT cities to visit these days. I'll be exploring the best taco stands in the city and searching for a fabulous plate of the national dish (and my very favorite comida), "Chile en Nogada," chile peppers stuffed with meat and fruit in a walnut nougat sauce and sprinkled with pomegranate seeds. Because it's red, white, and green—the color of the Mexican Flag—it's been affectionately deemed their national dish.

Stay tuned for more culinary, tequila, and trekking adventures.
