Latin American hot chocolate
Chocolate is so reach of stories, it was considered as a gift from the gods and transformed into an exchange coin since the metal ones were not available in certain cultures.
I think that chocolate binds us all, it has so many variations and each culture added something to it.
My mind finds itself always divided when i think about it. The human memory can go one step ahead and one step forward making our feelings get to the surface at that instance.
For me chocolate is equal to rainy days, ready to cheer you up when you need it the most, also is a breakfast beverage for a kid, at the same time it is a shared feeling, because in my country is kind of commun to share it while mourning the ones we lost.
So you can have a picture of what i’m talking about when i say that my mind finds divided while thinking about chocolate.
In one of my more cherished memories i remember one of my aunts making hot chocolate with spices to drink while taking sweet bread, always between 4pm and 5pm she was getting ready for this moment of nourrishing culture.
In other hand other memory i have is about one my aunts making it while we were at the funeral of my uncle.
