Mind you, I’m still living NOB, and will be for some time. Am I jumping the gun a bit? Maybe, but I’m starting to get curious about driving directions, that’s all. When I want kale, I’ll want to know if I make a left or a right on Calle 47. Be prepared, that’s my motto. One day I might want kale, and I’ll need to know my options.
I learned about the kale, and the fact that kale access is an issue, on one of those Facebook groups. I’m learning lots of small details like this. By the time I actually get to Mérida fulltime, maybe kale will be available at the Costco or Walmart, but I’m not taking any chances. I love greens, and I’m vowing to renew my focus on health and nutrition once I’m residing in Casa Nana. Greens aren’t a particularly central part of the local diet, I’m to understand. I’m not even sure you can order chaya at Chaya Maya.
I’m still overloading my virtual map with virtual pushpins. Restaurants and grocery stores are my focus lately. There’s a new spot in Col. Mexico that serves mussels. My Facebook friends seem to like it. How do I get there? Do I take a cab? Is Bruno Bistro taking reservations for 2014?
