« A Word From the Photographer | Main | Medan on a Plate »




Ah! The Mission! Where I spent many many happy days drifting from 16th to 24th (and beyond) and from 24th to 16th. At its cafes I read some of the most beautiful books in the world: Guimaraes Rosa's Grande Sertao: Veredas, Lezama Lima's Paradiso and Oppiano Licario...I shed a tear for those long-gone days of my sentimental education.

Looks like the gal is making huaraches (the oblong "slipper" shaped tortillas) in addition to tortillas for tacos.



Amazing photography. I should get out more. Thank you for this post!


I know this is food-unrelated but I think Mission Mural 10 is Manjushri, Buddha of Wisdom! :)


Those murals are exquisite, so vibrant...
