My husband and I along with a group of three from Canada enjoyed a wonderful afternoon together with Linda. The market seemed less scary after Linda's tour. We then made sopas which were very yummy. Lovely kitchen, tour, company and food.

Trip Advisor will not let me post an email address here. Hopefully you can figure out what I'm saying below. Linda's email is abuelindascuisine and that would be a gmail address
