My shopping in Mexico

By Maangchi

Allo everybody,
I thought you might be interested in what I brought from Mexico. Some of my friends also have asked me what things I bought in Mexico. I took some photos to show you.
“What’s  in Maangchi’s bags?” Here you go! More stories about my travel will be posted  later. Let me know what you think! Would you buy the same things as I did?

clay mugs
mortar, I bought the pestle, too, but it was confiscated  at the airport in Mexico ^^

    Oh my goodness! Mezcal?! That is some very serious stuff, lol! My husband is Mexican and his father has lots of bottles of homemade mezcal in their pantry. It could strip the black off of asphalt! Lol! He has given me a tiny little bit of it before, but I couldn’t drink it :-/ My father-in-law thought it was very funny. We have a small bottle of it that a friend brought back from Mexico for us. It has a very cute picture of a cartoon worm waving at us on the label. We’ve only drunk it around Thanksgiving or Christmas time and even then only a little bit. I’m too afraid to drink more because whoever gets the last shot has to eat the tiny worm at the bottom…bleh :( Maangchi, you are my hero and never cease to amaze me!
