Tis the season...for grasshoppers! This Oaxacan specialty is widely available throughout Mexico, served up with lime, salt and chile. I actually like chapulines, as well as two other dubious Mexican snack foods pictured here - dried crawdads from the rivers near Puebla and charales, a small lake fish which is dried and fried. What can I say? When in Rome...

Hiya... love your blog - just followed a link on I'm in Malaysia, moving back to Canada soon, but I can relate a lot to some of your entries about life in Mexico. It's been interesting going on a ten minute tour of Mex City - the subways, the streets, the restaurants, through your blog. :)
