  2. Be still, my heart.

  3. Hey, I know this chile stand! Mercado San Juan, right? I’d recognize those plastic bags and the powdered pepita anywhere.

    • You’re right Lesley! I took this picture the day we were there together.

  4. Chile heaven!

  5. I made homemade chili powder American-style chili last week and when I opened my bags of dried chiles, I almost gasped in ecstasy because they smelled so heavenly. There is just nothing like that rich, pungent smell to make me appreciate Mexican food, Mexican life, Mexican culture.

    Nice photo, Ben.
