Mexican street food – Part One

Aha you say, here is the post we want to hear about! Food! Glorious Mexican food! This post will mostly be about street food, because that’s mainly what we eat on our backpackers budget. Yeah we still have the funds to splash out if we wanted to but we have been enjoying the price, availability and deliciousness (not sure if that’s a real word but I’m going to go with it) of street stalls and market vendors.

Cuernavaca

After leaving Taxco we ventured closer to Mexico City to Cuernavaca which would be our last stop before finally making it to the capital. We had an interesting four days here, nothing too eventful but just full enough.

We didn’t have any accommodation booked but Tom had done his research and knew that there was a street which had a lot of budget hotels near to both the Centro and the bus station. I’m always happy when the bus station is near the center of town because it means I don’t have to lump my heavy pack too far. We soon found the hotel Tom had looked into and as it was cheap and clean we were happy enough to spend a few nights. Within 24 hours and after walking to and from the hotel a few times we clued onto the fact that there were some “working girls” who frequented another hotel a few doors down. Luckily we didn’t choose that hotel!
