Mexico: grasshoppers, tacos and (possible) documentaries

I lived in Mexico more than a decade ago. And since then, I've wanted to return and shoot a documentary film. This past week, I traveled to Mexico City to scout two possible films. And once again, I fell in love with the people, culture, colors -- and tacos -- of our vecino to the south. 

50 kilometers from Mexico City,  near my favorite volcano in the world, Popocatepetl.

Reflecting on my recent trip brings to mind:  the lovely, contant purr of Volkswagon Bugs in the streets, a renewed fascination with Mexico's rugged landscape (don't get me started about its beautiful volcanoes), the seemingly endless and warm hospitality of the Mexican people -- and of course, great food, including a wonderful lunch last week, in a colonial courtyard, featuring guacamole topped with dried grasshoppers. Yum.

Yes, it's time to return to Mexico. This time, to film a documentary. Stay tuned.

Cholula, Mexico. A cute little colonial town with pocos gringos.
