it's not crazy, it's cultural

If you walked into our kitchen right now, you'd immediately notice — other than the pot that says "I have cheese in me / No whey!" and the bowls of draining cheese and the cheesecloth drying on the cupboard handles — a bag of water hanging over the sink.
For the flies.
The only places I've ever heard of that do this are a venta on the way to Sevilla and a restaurant in New Mexico that my folks went to. Both had bags of water hanging around "for the flies." Sounds weird, but it seems to work.
And I swear that there haven't been any flies around the cheese since I hung up that bag. Baby, you're so patient!
