Food of Michoacan

After visiting the butterflies in Sierra Chinqua, we were lucky enough to be directed to Cocina El Mirador which is an authentic cowboy restaurant. It is basically a barn, with a few tables on a dirt floor and a wood-fired griddle. Fresh Steak, cactus leaves and onions with simple quesadillas was prepared for us on a wood fired stove. In this authentically rustic setting I sat down to one of the best and truly unique dining experiences. Simple sometimes is best.

Animals have good instincts for this sort of thing. If Michoacan is so special for them there must be a good reason.

But it has been famous for 2 thousand years. Did you know Cleopatra used to come here because she loved the beaches and its balmy weather? Today Brits and Russians still crowd its beaches. But there are plenty of other things to do and see. Take the city of Paphos for instance. The beautiful 4 star Almyra Hotel is built right on the water . Here you can get a massage and look at the medieval castle from the days of the Crusades right across the harbour. Take this church from the 13th century. St Paul was chained to this pillar and flogged for preaching Christianity. I get goosebumps just thinking about it. You can walk to the archeological city which became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1980. Here rich Romans built their villas with great mosaics on the floor. Look carefully at these people drinking wine…. Sun and breezes means grapes and those Romans loved Cyprus wine. It’s vintage time and OLYMPUS winery in the Trodos mountains is busy picking grapes. South of Paphos is the Rock of Aphrodite, where according to legend Aphrodite the goddess of love sprung out of the water. In Limassol the famous Crusader Knights built this castle in the middle of vineyards, A thousand years ago they produced a dessert wine called Commanderia still enjoyed today. Here it is also wine festival time, where wineries from all over Cyprus come to pitch their wines. Cyprus although a very small island ranks 37th in wine production in the world. Going East are great beaches and sports activities Then some culture, visiting these grottos carved in the rocks where monks used to live and pray. Wow! Keo is a major winery producing world class wines. Finally, time to relax on endless beaches and secluded coves… Cleopatra was right! Cyprus is a magical place! You can visit our sponsors websites and enjoy foods and wines from Cyprus by ordering from their US distributors. And if you have time for a vacation you can book a trip right here. www.visitcyprus.com less
