And we also eat meat, of course. Pork is very often eaten, but close
to Oaxtepec is the world-famous Yecapixtla, famous for its salted
beef, which was exported (before fridges were invented) to all of the
New Spain.

I have never eaten cockroaches, but you will find grilled grasshopers
in the market. They are very tasty, many Debconf attendees have tasted
the ones I brought to Oslo and to Helsinki. Oh, and I'm sure Mako
