Did you know that the world’s largest pyramid is not in Egypt? It’s in Mexico! We'll explore the country’s other must-visit destinations during our time together: famed beaches, gorgeous volcanos, ancient ruins, and its specially named “magical” colonial towns like San Miguel de Allende.
We'll discover Mexico’s fabulous cuisine, including its historic chocolate and tequila-making legacies. We'll discuss Mexico’s colorful festivals like the Day of the Dead, which is part of the UNESCO intangible cultural heritage since 2003. We’ll explore the fascinating stories behind that country’s famous dishes like tacos, tortillas, tamales, enchiladas, mole, and more. The lecture includes a handout with links to sights in Mexico and recipes.
