I pre -ordered this the first day I read about it.  It should arrive on the 25 of the month.  Really looking forward to it.  She is in my mental collection of strong, amazing women.  It includes, among others, R.B.G., Jane Goodall and Julia Child.

I saw this story in the Washington Post.  I had the pleasure of meeting her in 2010, including just the 2 of us sharing a quick bite.

Watched it last night.  AMZN Prime Video; 6 bucks plus tax.  

 

Filmed when she was 95; shows her driving around Michoacan in her stick-shift truck, going to markets, cooking up a storm and being generally feisty.   

 

Good footage at her off-the-grid house in Zitacuaro and some old video and pics from her early days in MX in the late 50s.  

 

Enjoyed it immensely!
