Tomorrow we head off to the 'land of seven moles'. And no, we won't be burrowing with little blind mammals, we are actually making our way to Oaxaca in Mexico. For those, like me, who are new to a 'mole' (pronouced Moh-lay) it is a rich, complex sauce with up to thirty different ingredients. The Oaxaca region is famous for its moles.
Before the veritable Oaxacan feast, we will spend a couple of days kayaking around the Sea of Cortez in Baja, Mexico. I'm sorry; I don't mean to rub it in, but after surviving another rainy winter in Vancouver my Australian blood needs some serious warming.
So 'hasta pronto' and see you in two weeks!
