How many tortillas is too many tortillas?
I've only been in Guatemala for 4 days, and I've sincerely eaten tortillas with every single meal. No exaggeration. And please do not mistake me, I am NOT complaining. Nor do I plan on stopping anytime soon. I've got a week left, so let's keep this tortilla train running!
These are not the ordinary tortillas most of us are used to in the states. In San Antonio El Ángel, the small village where Programa Sueños operates, I've been woken each morning by the clapping sound of hands forming the masa and the smell of the wood smoke from the fire where the tortillas are being cooked. They're served warm and wrapped in a colorful dishcloth, which never seems to be empty.
As I write this, I think my official tortilla tally is somewhere up near 25 by now, so check back to see how many it takes for me to get sick of them. [Spoiler alert, it ain't gonna happen!]
