A little about Playa Zipolite, The Beach of the Dead . . .

Playa Zipolite, Oaxaca, Southern Mexico, on the Pacific Ocean. A little bit about my favorite little get-away on this small world of ours.

Zipolite, a sweaty 30-minute walk west from Puerto Angel, brings you to Playa Zipolite and another world. The feeling here is 1970's - Led Zep, Marley, and scruffy gringos.

A long, long time ago, Zipolite beach was usually visited by the Zapotecans...who made it a magical place. They came to visit Zipolite to meditate, or just to rest.

Recently, this beach has begun to receive day-trippers from Puerto Angel and Puerto Escondido, giving it a more TOURISTY feel than before.

Most people come here for the novelty of the nude beach, yoga, turtles, seafood, surf, meditation, vegetarians, discos, party, to get burnt by the sun, or to see how long they can stretch their skinny budget.

I post WWW Oaxaca, Mexico, Zipolite and areas nearby information. Also general budget, backpacker, surfer, off the beaten path, Mexico and beyond, information.

REMEMBER: Everyone is welcome at Zipolite.

Mi misión imposible: El mole

Un desafío más me esperaba en Puerto Escondido: aprender a hacer mole. Igual que con el surf, que nunca me imaginé capaz de practicar, jamás pensé que podría pasar de abrir un frasco de mole y agregarle caldo, a prepararlo desde cero.
“No sé por qué a este platillo le llaman mole amarillo; es más bien rojizo y anaranjado”, me comentó mientras salíamos al patio a cortar hoja santa para saltear el camarón. Todo fluía en esta cocina: los frijoles negros y el arroz estuvieron listos a tiempo, y me reí para mis adentros cuando me imaginé intentando lo mismo en mi cocina. Mejor disfrutar de este momento, y de la cremosa y tibia salsa de mole vertida sobre los jugosos camarones; una delicia con la nota picante perfecta.
“Invigorated by having successfully
flown across water on a board, I was
ready for my next challenge: making
mole. I headed to the market in Puerto
Escondido to meet my mole instructor,
Tony. First, he took me shopping, intently
examining each chili [sic]and vegetable.
In his personal kitchen, he chopped and
stirred and mixed away—everything
just flowed naturally, and I chuckled
just thinking about attempting this on
my own. Better just enjoy this moment,
I thought, as the creamy mole sauce
poured over the shrimp. And I did.”
