Greetings TAO Family and Friends!

In Mexico, September is el mes de la patria (month of the homeland), and sometimes it seems as though the whole country is painted in red, white and green (the colors of the Mexican flag). Colorful and patriotic festivities celebrating the events that led up to Mexico's Independence from Spain are held throughout the country, culminating on the 15th and 16th.

Mexicans celebrate their country’s Independence Day with fireworks, parties (fiestas), food, dance and music on September 16. Flags, flowers and decorations in the colors of the Mexican flag – red, white and green – are seen in public areas in cities and towns in Mexico. Whistles and horns are blown and confetti is thrown to celebrate this festive occasion. “Viva Mexico” or “Viva la independencia” are shouted amidst the crowds on this day.

My tip of the month.

Once a week, spend a couple of hours in a place you love - this could be in nature, engaged in a sport or in a gallery. Once a week share a meal, in an intentional and spacious way, with someone you love (no rushing and no TV). Finally, be sure you find the signs and symbols of love that inspire you and keep the close. Placing a token rock, a meaningful photo, or a spiritual message somewhere that you will see it everyday can make a difference and keep your attitude afloat.

Happy September one and all! Come see us soon!

How to make a proper “Chile Nogada”

How to make a proper chile en nogada

Every year in late summer and early fall, the chile en nogada makes its brief run through Mexico.

Chiles en nogada is not an easy dish, and it’s not meant to be. That’s part of the tradition. Walnuts must be peeled. Spices assembled. Raw and dried fruit, chopped. Even after assembling your chile, you must dunk it in egg batter and fry it.

Get the complete receipe here.

Two ancient Mayan Cities recently discovered in Campeche

In the northern part of the Biosphere Reserve of Calakmul, Campeche, archaeologists discovered what appear to be two ancient Mayan cities: Lagunita, which remained covered by lush vegetation for decades; and another unregistered urban center called Tamchén (“Deep Well”), named after the large number of “chultunes” (wells, or water holes) found in the area, some up to 13 meters deep.
