El Santo maíz de Milpa Alta

Doña Susana sells tlacoyos, gorditas and tortillas made from the blue corn she has growing behind her home in Milpa Alta, the southernmost delegation of Mexico City, which feels about as far from city life as one can get both in terms of public transit time (2 hours by bus from Tasqueña, where the subway ends), and the manner in which people live and communicate. She also makes and sells pulque (a pre-Hispanic fermented alcoholic bev made from the maguey/agave plant), interprets dreams and speaks fluent Nahuatl, the ancestral language of these mountain villages that overlook the behemoth city.

Provecho! .
