So far, we have found street food in every city, town and village that we have visited this season.  All through Mexico, Belize and Guatemala, folks sell food they have prepared themselves.  And it's usually delicioso!

Both men and women sell street food.  Sometimes they set up card tables.  Some have carts.  Some even have customized bicycles.  Street food can be as simple as fresh squeezed orange juice or as complicated as deep fried empanadas.  

Corn on the cob is always a favorite.

Spears of fresh fruit...good and good for you!
We  never found out what Pibes are.  My Spanish dictionary says a pibe is a "kid"....seriously!

Nice presentation!!!

Pies, cakes and flan.  Flan is the national dessert of Mexico, I think.  Egg custard with caramel sauce.

You can translate this even if you don't speak Spanish.

Don't know what he is offering, but he's obviously very proud of it.

This young man is making marquesitas, rounds of waffle-like dough cooked on a grill, spread with Nutella and Edam cheese, then rolled up.

Pappas y churros.  Churros are fingers of dough, deep-fried then rolled in cinnamon sugar.

Your choice of chicken or pork, on a bun....with hot peppers.

Always bebidas whever you go...these are very sugary.

Mango man...and there's Waldo in the background.

Pork rinds and bebidas...m-m-m-m-m.  Don't you get the feeling he loves his job!

Can't remember what he was balancing on his head.  And there's Waldo again.

Watermelon...and Waldo.

And I just had to take a picture of this little princess.
