Guillermo D Olmo @BBCgolmoBBC World News8 minutesImage source, Courtesy of the Mayor's Office of IztapalapaCaption, A recently published comic narrates the life of Cuitláhuac.The story of the conquest of Mexico by the Spanish has been told many times and in many ways.

It is about Cuitláhuac, Moctezuma's younger brother. On the death of his brother in June 1520, Cuitláhuac succeeded him to the Mexica throne and led the resistance against the European invaders, whom he defeated in the so-called Noche Triste, causing numerous casualties and expelling them from Tenochtitlán, the Current Mexico City.Fo...

Nigel Slater’s Recipes for Holiday Leftovers: Panettone Soup and Custard | Food

Tyours is the best time in the fridge. A bowl of cranberry sauce filled to the brim; chunks of cold roast goose, perhaps turkey; some cold, steep and golden roast potatoes, and, joy of the joys, a plate of cold piglets in blankets.
