Mexico. ------ In some places, when you cross the road, people from a funny hippy van that are not hippies smile at you and laugh. I had to come back and in the few seconds left before the light is red, take a photo, trying to save the moment. #themoodisgood

Tejate is a new favorite mexican drink for some of us. This tasty and filling drink is made with corn (naturally), cacao (also naturally), and a local flower called rosita del cacao. It is drunk in this colorful jicaras (a bowl made of a plant) which make the drink even more attractive. Women still make the whole thing by hand. #Oaxaca is the place to try it. On the street.

Making chocolate step no 3: #cacaoparatodos The dried cocoa beans are roasted and the nutty beans are removed from their shells. Here in Oaxaca, Mexico traditionally this is done by hand, a meditative, long process which is better done in company while talking about music and drinking Tejate - traditional mexican hot chocolate with maze and cacao. #themoodisgood

the fisherman. When fishing, two hours before the sun sets, he was helped by many. Everyone gathered by the shore, helping the big nets being pulled in. And of course, everyone's pockets was full of fish. #caribbean

Making chocolate steps 2&3 in a dance for two: Fermenting and drying the cocoa beans. In most countries cacao is dried naturally under the sun on big racks. It’s common that the person responsible for this is “tramping” them every hour or so, so that they can dry evenly. Also because we are in the tropics, it’s a stressful job because rain can appear in any moment and the beans should be covered. Chocolate is hard work. #cacaoisawesome

Making chocolate part 1: The cacao fruit is harvested and gathered in big, colorful piles. The fruit is cut and the insides which are the raw, wet beans covered in sweet white pulp are collected. Trying not to eat the pulp we collect all the cacao wet beans and prepare for the next step - fermentation. #artofchocolate

The calabash tree fruit in Grenada makes the lightest and super beautiful and durable reusable food bowls and cups. As we so often spend time in airplanes and airports and buses which always use plastic cups, the calabash cups will be useful. Plus they look really nice. The process of making is interesting and something which looks like a fresh coconut becomes this wooden like bowl. #grenadacrafts#caribbeancrafts

Daily gratfefulness: holding fresh cacao fruit for the first time! This cacao pod is from an amazing cacao farm just 20 meters from where we are staying. Its brothers and sisters will turn into delicious, bean-to-bar chocolate in few months. After cracking it and tasting the wet, whitish cacao beans inside it is hard to imagine that this one day will be yummy chocolate.

The last two months back home were really emotional, very sentimental and kind of epic. With so much love, hospitality and care from your people, the leaving is more difficult than ever. With the amazing and unbelievable long gypsy summer smiling and the hearts full of love because of all the friends we are ready for a new adventure. Maria's film is developed right before we jump to #costarica so we can take these golden autumn moments with us

During the last months in #Iceland, Maria was shooting with her film camera and finally, back in Bulgaria, we managed to develop all of them. Like all the analog shots some are lost or blurry or just bad but the very few that manage to come out clear are truly amazing.

Back in Bulgaria, we caught one of the best so-called gypsy summers ever. Everlasting sun, empty wild beaches, and the blue warm sea embracing you were the feelings that we missed a lot. The next month we will be watching the trees turning orange and brown and red and will be enjoying a real proper autumn at last
