It's funny, isn't it? To think about a certain taste and how it can encompass all of life? Cilantro is that way, present in every culture around the world, and so is lime. And, not surprisingly, the two go together well, but even more so where where the temperatures are hotter. There is something reassuring about knowing that there are flavors that work anywhere in the world. As if such a small thing can bring people together, to nod in mutual happiness over a shared taste, to pass the bowl of lime wedges from one person to another. At this point, I'm not sure how else we'll get there.
