Food of Michoacan

After visiting the butterflies in Sierra Chinqua, we were lucky enough to be directed to Cocina El Mirador which is an authentic cowboy restaurant. It is basically a barn, with a few tables on a dirt floor and a wood-fired griddle. Fresh Steak, cactus leaves and onions with simple quesadillas was prepared for us on a wood fired stove. In this authentically rustic setting I sat down to one of the best and truly unique dining experiences. Simple sometimes is best.

Animals have good instincts for this sort of thing. If Michoacan is so special for them there must be a good reason.

Historically, feng shui was widely used to orient buildings—often spiritually significant structures such as tombs, but also dwellings and other structures—in an auspicious manner. Depending on the particular style of feng shui being used, an auspicious site could be determined by reference to local features such as bodies of water, stars, or a compass. Feng shui was suppressed in China during the cultural revolution in the 1960s, but since then has increased in popularity. Fung Shui Master Raymond Lo explains how Hong Kong success is tied to its Fung Shui design. less

From the Tibetan Plateau this river runs through China's Yunnan province, Burma, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia. In Phnom Penh the Mekong river receives the Tonle Sap River. The seasonal cycle of changing water levels at Phnom Penh results in the unique “flow reversal” of water into and out of Tonle Sap River. Phnom Penh also marks the beginning of the delta system of the Mekong River. Rich in fishlife the Mekong provides a large amount of the proteins consumed by the Phnom Pen population. Water dwellers and small fishing boats ply the waters incessantly. In the villages along the river is a small cottage industry of Khmer silk weaving which is one of the oldest traditions in Cambodia. We visited one called Heng Naysim. less
