Peddling Home

Mario peddles Mexican food from an insulated chest on his tricycle. Some of the best on the island of Cozumel, the Island of Swallows. Better tasting than the stuff in the restaurants that attract the cruise ship crowd. His wife makes it at home starting at 5 a.m. and she cooks until well past noon. Her name is Juanita, but everyone calls her Maizy because of the delicate, maize tortillas she makes fresh daily. The contents of the rolled up tortilla logs fluctuates with market prices. Sometimes they are filled with thin strips of grilled flank steak, a paste of ground smoked ancho peppers, and limp, brown edged, sweet grilled onions. Some have bright lime green guacamole with pungent roasted garlic. Some have shrimp or fish. Jicama. Pork. Tripe. Tangy chipotle in adobo. Chopped tomato. Potent chorizo sausage tinted amber by annatto seed. He makes several trips home every day to re-stock his trike. The shop keepers buy from him, and the fishermen. But not the tourists.
