Axomama (deity #19 from the atheists’ god graveyard) is one of the daughters of Pachamama, the ancient Peruvian Earth mother.  Her name literally means Potato mother.  Potatoes were a staple food and main energy source for ancient Peruvians and still are for modern Andeans.

There we were in Nuremberg. It had been a long day. We'd just come from the Albrecht Dürer house (it was closed) and the Christmas Market square (it was April). It was getting late, and we were getting hungry. We started looking for likely restaurants.

We walked past one called Die Hexenküchen, literally “the Witches' Kitchen.” “How about this one?” I say.

In German, the word Hexenküchen implies total chaos: not something one looks for in an eatery. We go in to take a look. A charming place, actually, obviously old: exposed timber beams, very Altbayernisch. No apparent sign of disorder. Turns out it's a potato pancake restaurant; everything on the menu is served with potato pancakes. What's not to like? We sit down and order a beer.

    Hopefully, no one we know will ever need to use this knowledge, but it sure does seem like something worth passing along. Just in
