By the time we reached San Cristobal I was chattering away in Spanish, making friends and fitting into my role as “Pedro” like a well-worn pair of cowboy boots. Sometimes it seemed like just yesterday we’d arrived and everything was foreign; other days it was like we’d been here forever. Still, at every turn, I was struck by the kindness of the Mexican people; so often it’s those with very little who happily give so much.

I was invited into an incredible variety of homes, restaurants, families and circumstances, from the polished and wealthy to the ancient and rustic. Each had a story, a history; and the people I met were so proud of what they had, and so willing to share it with us to capture on film.

I feel honoured to have had the opportunity to share my Mexican Fiesta with you all, as well as some extra behind-the-scenes stories, facts and knowledge with those of you who are reading my blogs.

I believe we can learn something from everyone we meet, and everywhere we go. Mexico taught me about a beautiful culture with incredible food and a fascinating history. I hope you’ve enjoyed it enough to go seek it out for yourself. Try the recipes, learn the language, read the stories and ¡hacer su propia fiesta – make your own fiesta!
