The World Class Tortillaista
Recently Andrew and I were sitting in our host-family's kitchen eating our fourth tortilla. They really do start to grow on you after a while, mostly because if you don't eat at least three, you'll go to bed hungry. The ancient Mayans long ago figured out that if you finish a meal with a sizable lump of wet, ground maize in your stomach, you won't be hungry anymore. Luckily this tradition has been passed down for hundreds of years to the two gringos sitting in the kitchen on this particular day.
