Ever complain, wanting to upgrade your kitchen? I do sometimes. I miss my Kitchen Aid mixer, baking paraphernalia, and numerous other amenities I no longer have. I miss having “normal” cabinets, a split sink with a sprayer, and a dishwasher.
Then I see what the indian women on Oaxaca’s coast use to cook with and suddenly count my blessings. Here are some photos of a very simple kitchen, built outside since the heat and humidity of the area don’t allow for indoor cooking.

Now aren’t you grateful for what you have?
