Q: Hola! With one week left in Mexico City, I'm thinking about what food and cookware items I should bring back. I want to bring items that are safe and legal to transport, much less expensive here or not available in the US, and that I will actually use. Do you have any suggestions?

Here's my shopping list so far: Oregano, cinnamon, vanilla beans, flor de jamaica (hibiscus), lemongrass, chocolate, and a great clay olla for chocolate. Does anyone have any additions, corrections, or comments?
