My last purchase from Margarita   2 comments

The Flor de Izote I bought from Margarita was my last purchase from her.  For almost two years now, I’ve bought veggies, cheese, cream, and all sorts of foods from her as she makes her rounds in our neighborhood, toting her goods in the guacal on her head.   I don’t always need what she sells me, but I’m happy to help keep her in business, and admire the courage it takes to walk from door to door selling the way she does.  And always with a smile, and a laugh, she was a bright spot in my week on the days she came by.  I will miss Margarita, so took these pictures of her to remember her.

The white flowers in this guacal (bucket) are what I bought from her that day, and cooked them.
