Mexico City

Right now I’m in Michigan where the sun doesn’t come out until after 8am, there’s snow on the ground, and last night I couldn’t sleep due to a raging sore throat (weee!). But last week! I was in Mexico City, my eyes as big as saucers as I ran around the city soaking up as much as I could, enjoying family, having adventures with Kamel, laughing about the morning Tamale man, the dog that barked every day at 6:30 am, going on morning walks with the camera in the sunshine, and doing my best to understand all of the Spanish swirling around me while Kamel acted as my UN Interpreter, drinking Tequila with lime and salt. I want to go back there.

  2. Beautiful pictures lauren!! What an awesome adventure – I’m totally enthralled with the colors and people and food and the goings-on of these pictures – each time I look at them, theres more to see!

    I can feeeeeeeeeel the color, noise, smells, stimulation overload. Looks like a fabulous trip.

  4. So much fun ! All that food, tacos al pastor, conchas, and Frida Kahlo’s kitchen (right?), and grilled corn. You have my mouth watering here. Looks like you enjoyed every second of it !
    Also, Xochimilco… you gave me memories there, I did an internship studying axolotls , water neotenic salamanders that only live there, and as to be expected, mexicans eat them in tamales and make healing creams out of them.
    Hope everything is going well in Michigan !

  5. Just a few days before these pictures I was in the JW Marriott Hotel right there, in Polanco! You just walking right in front of it is an amazing coincidence!
    Colors never end in Mexico, I love it!
