Yet another reason (no. 451) why I love living here

Last night after we got home from a great dinner (thank you Don and Rosalie!) the husband and I were vegging in front of the TV, when we heard the Cheese-Man come by. For those of you who don't know, this is a gentleman who walks the streets of Cozumel with a giant cardboard box balanced on his head. The box is filled with cheese, and he sings as he walks.

"Queso Oaxaca, Queso Oaxaca!"

In addition to being the yummiest cheese in the world, I just love the whole concept! I've lived here for over 10 years now, so when I hear the chant, I start digging out my wallet.

Where else in the world can one get home cheese delivery? If one were even to attempt duplicating this at home, in say Georgia, and walked the streets with a big cardboard box on your head, chanting "I got Cheddar, Cheddar Cheese!" wouldn't the neighbors call the cops and try to have you committed?

So, I just finished posting this, and there's a "Buennno" at my door, and it's our tamale/pozole lady solititing orders for red pozole on Saturday!!

I just love how you don't have to leave your house to get what you need here!!

there's a travelling knife sharpener, cheese man, gas and water trucks, and tricycles with baked goods that all travel around. You can be agorophobic and still have everything you need!!

Sounding better and better!

I am so, so jealous of the traveling cheese man. I can't even get pizza delivered out here!
