When I was at BYU, I went to Mexico for a couple of weeks on a study-abroad, learning Spanish, and I remember the food I ate there, like it was yesterday. First up, they told us NOT to eat food from the streets–which is exactly where my host family took me on my first night there…. and of course, I got pretty sick. I was relieved when they served me some milk, because it was actually something I was familiar with, and then when it tasted like pure sugar water I realized it wasn’t actually milk–but rather horchata (a sweet rice milk) and I was NOT a fan! Then they gave me some coconut, which I thought would be delicious–until they covered it with lime juice, salt and chilli!
