I Moved To Oaxaca

Thursday, November 03, 2005

Got a lot of water under the bridge since my last post to this blog. We're now in Berkeley, California. G-man is still writing -- gainfully! -- and I'm working at a bakery. We're gearing up for a trip back; we seriously need some Oaxacan food, as there is none in the Bay Area*, and G still has some stuff to research for his Oaxaca book.

I'll keep you posted.

*When we moved back to the Bay Area, we heard that there was a restaurant in the Marina District in The City that had Oaxacan food, so we kept organizing expeditions there to check it out. Oh, they're not open Mondays. Oh, they've closed for the day. Oh, now they're on vacation for the holidays. The menu posted in the window didn't look very Oaxacan -- well, not at all, really -- but then we ran into one of the chefs at Mi Lindo Yucatan in the Mission. He told us that if we came by they'd make us any Oaxacan food we wanted. Tlayudas? Yes. Garnachas? Yes. Okay, we are so there.
But next time we went by, the restaurant had closed...permanently!
And that was that. We have toyed with flying to LA and getting tlayudas there...maybe soon.
