Food Challenge in Mexico: How Many Grasshoppers Can You Eat?

Culture, Mexico

Taste out the World! This is point number one on my bucketlist. While wandering the streets of Mexico City, I found quite unusual snack to taste – a fried grasshopper called chapulines. Sounds quite repulsive. But only at first. This snack has very ancient roots. Aztecs used to enjoy this protein-rich food in their swampy city ages ago.

Aztecs: 3 Must-see links to stir up curiosity

Mexico

Places are just places, if you don’t put a meaning to them. The cultural or historical context of the places I visit always fascinates me. Before visiting Mexico and its’ capital, I was looking for something to stir up my curiosity. Aztecs were the ones which caught my attention. This tribe lived in the humid valley, where the modern giant capital is. They made history with their cruel rituals of human sacrifice. Too bad. Because there was much more to this complex and mysterious civilization. Here are 3 links for seeing, listening and imagining what was happening, when the world was 1000 years younger.
