Blog a la Pibil

"Blog a la Pibil" was born in Mexico, and was originally based on the adventures of Josue and Lupita, who were traveling in Mexico for two months. This blog is now a continuation of the life of Lupita, who has been restored to her life as a mere mortal in Los Angeles.

Josh and I have decided to blog our time in Guadalajara. We actually decided to do this on Saturday evening, when we got here, but couldn't think of a name until now. Our new roommate, Ralph Fischer, took us to a good local tacqueria -- Los Laureles -- where we had tacos pollo a la pibil. According to Carl Franz, a pib is the pit where the meat is interred after being coated with various things like oranges and spices (this, apparently, can be done with deer, turkey and pig as well). The pib at Los Laureles looked more like a gyro than a pit, but the result was still muy delicioso. After rejecting "El Blog" and "Pinche Blog," we finally settled on "Blog a la Pibil" -- a fitting choice as all we've done since we got here is eat. -LT

We also have to give a plug to our friend Jose Vallejo (Pepe), whose photo we won't be posting until he gets in town from Australia in late July. Thanks for your bed and the clean sheets, Pepe. And the hammock and cable modem. And for your roommate Ralph. Some or all of these things may no longer belong to you when you return. (squatters rights, etc.) - JA

Andale Josue y Lupita! Que les vaya bien!

Hey guys-L, we've never met, but I met Josh at Pranav's house where we all ate way too much food and watched a Japanese horror movie that had to do with cell phones. Josh may or may not have screamed. I cannot confirm or deny this information. Anywho, I'm O-the-file-guy's girfriend, Susan. I'm linking you guys to my blog because I'm stoked that you're keeping a blog of your trip (ok, envious tambien).
I hope you enjoy your trip!!!
