I recently got back from Mexico City. On the third day of my trip, I got a bad case of traveler's diarrhea AKA La "Venganza de Moctezuma." There were many factors that caused my illness. Perhaps, I was exhausted and my body was reacting to the environment. Maybe, I have a weak American vegan stomach. OR, I had the water by accident. I don't know what it was, but it has not deterred me from planning future trips to Mexico. I love that country and its people. When I got back, I immediately dived into my natural remedies. Soup being one of them. This one is my favorite. I love zucchini and the thickness it brings to any dish.
