Cancun Chicken Curry, chicken cooked in a fragrant tomato based sauce filled with spices and a bit of heat, is an Indian dish inspired by a trip to Cancun, Mexico. Yeah, I know that sounds a bit funny, but stick with me and it should all make sense by the time you get to the recipe!
Mr. Fuji and I took a quick five day trip to Cancun, Mexico last week to celebrate (belatedly) our 10 year wedding anniversary. While in Cancun we met a really fun couple from New York City staying at the same resort—I’ll call them Ms. M and Mr. A. As we talked, we quickly discovered that we had a lot in common, and so the “getting to know you” conversations morphed into discussions about life in general. At one point Ms. M asked, “Why do you think we like to travel so much?” The first response that popped into my mind was, “because we love to see new places.” Ms. M quickly responded, “But why do we love to see new places?” I paused as I had never truly thought past my initial response.
After thinking for several minutes, a realization began to form in my mind and I finally replied, “When we travel, we learn more about ourselves.” Throughout the traveling I’ve done in my lifetime, especially since I graduated from high school, I’ve come to know and discover a lot about myself, and looking back I realize how little we truly know about ourselves when we are young.
