Patzcuaro Pomp and Circumstance

What elaborate dresses we see when out and about Patzcuareando. Here we have two elaborately gowned girls having their photos taken for First Communion. These dresses rival those of the quinceañera fifteenth birthday celebration and wedding dresses.

Tacos de Carnitas

Carnitas...pork that is so moist and tender it can be broken into pieces or shreds with a fork. Place in a warm tortilla, add chopped onion and cilantro and red or green salsa. Traditionally eaten with chiles en escabeche...a vinegar pickled chile.

We went for tacos  to Carnitas Las Plazas on Iturbe, between Plaza Grande and Plaza Chica. The line forms before the doors open--at 12:00 Noon if I remember correctly. We went about 1:30 PM. The tacos were, as always, delicious.
