Here in Oaxaca, I am surrounded by some of the freshest and delicious foods i have ever experienced. Today i am going to try to make an agua Fresca. It’s basically a tea made with hibiscus flowers, and I’m going to add a little bit of panela, an unrefined cane sugar. After it cools, i’ll pour a glass and drink it kind of like a decaffinated iced tea. So cheers! Here’s to trying new things: my first agua fresca!
Oaxaca Artist, Santiago Martínez introduces in studio in centro, Oaxaca. We made this video together, using only an iPhone. It amazes me how much you can do with these little phones nowadays. [iframe id=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/Dk3vGkE6_4M?rel=0″]

After a very busy spring, I’m heading to Oaxaca, Mexico to practice my spanish, and make art. I’m staying for 3 months. I haven’t been away from home for that long, and I’m a little bit nervous, and will miss everyone back home, but I’ll stay in touch!
