Nice memories. It's also an amazing thing viewed from above - unless you're paying attention, at first you're not apt to realize the tarps overhead are all different colors.

And since I considered tall any of the locals who stood taller than my shoulder height, I was constantly on the lookout for eye-popping (literally) metal tubes, and constantly ducking.

Here in Uruguay we have férias in different places on different days, with exceptionally fresh produce, none of which, as far as I can tell, comes from more than a couple hundred kilometers away. Usually you can buy at least two kinds of incredibly fresh lettuce, a couple varieties of tomatoes, fish from the ocean a few blocks away.

Alas, no Oaxaca cheese or corn tortillas ("tor-TI-zhas" ;-)
