Today our Dutch contingent got away for a lunch break to a real Brazilian chocolate shop! We tried BRIGADEIROS what is it? Well I will tell you what it's not, it's #nottruffle #notbonbon but chocolate delicacy from Brazil it is made with condensed milk... and everyone knows that condensed milk makes EVERYTHING just better! Sweet Bob Amsterdam oh and they have phenomenal Brazilian coffee. If you know Brazilians, they will always tell you that Brazilian coffee is different. And they're right. If you're in the Netherlands or traveling by stop in and say hi to Renato, Andre and Dinho!
Aunque no hay muchas rancheras, aquí con quien me ha enseñado a amar a México y su cultura..... mi papá que tanto amo y de quien tengo la pasión por la música con sabor a nuestro continente!

In Mexico you don't need a special occasion to get together and celebrate! In fact, every weekend, families, friends, neighbors get together, cook, eat, and dance.
Let's feel a bit of Mexico right here in Amsterdam and get together to celebrate viernes! (Friday)
Laura Estrada will lead us in a true Mexican style fiesta, where everyone talks loudly, gets into the kitchen and pitches in while sipping on delicious Mexican cocktails. Laura is a long time cooking enthusiast, born ...and raised in Mexico and now lives here in Holland.
We will go through the basics but trust me she will tell you some tweeks and hacks in making it taste really MEXICAN using ingredients found in your local supermarket.
We will start with the little known (abroad) Mexican cocktail sweetly called "Paloma" (Dove) but don't let the cute name fool you, its made with Tequila, and happens to be the most popular tequila drink in Mexico. We'll then turn up the music just a bit
With drink in hand, we will proceed to get our hands dirty preparing guacamole. Once again Laura will tell us a trick to making a BIG batch fresh for the whole family.
Then Laura will show us how to make chicken enchiladas for our main course. And we'll once again get busy making the delicious Salsa Verde!
We will then refresh our cocktails and sit down to eat all together! Dancing in-between eating highly encouraged!
Laura is a cooking enthusiast by day creating authentic Mexican food experiences and regularly collaborating with other global inspired cooks for some fusion cooking. She also happens to be a DJ by night discovering new talents in indie, rock, and new folk music with her station DJWorld RADIO.
Alla co-founder of Live Like You're Traveling (the blog of the same name), and the popular Meetup group in Amsterdam). She is an ex-New Yorker, having lived in the Netherlands for the past 10 years, proclaiming that what she misses the most about USA is Mexican food! True story.
Hasta pronto amigos!!!

"Surrender" is a strange word. We don't want to surrender to anything, but we are in fact surrendering on a daily basis to the ideas of others, to the imagined authority or expertise of others. This wonderful retreat focuses on learning to "surrender" to YOUR OWN power, your own strength and wisdom.
What do you do to make sure you don't burn out before the week is over? Hump day is exactly when to get into a *Bali state of mind* like the ladies at @bucketlistbombshells ⚡️something to sip + cozy seating + conversation (or not!) [ 📷: at a cliff side @airbnb in Uluwatu, Bali📍]
