Mexico City on Good Friday

0

It was a lovely night tonight in Mexico City. I walked across the center on crowded streets to have a tune salad and a beer at Café Popular–delicious as I sat at the counter and people crammed this favorite local hangout.

For those who travel to Mexico City (our themed trips are coming soon), this one is a must. Especially if you are enthralled with the 20th century history–including Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Trotsky […]

So I am just back from Mexico City and other points here and about in Mexico. And I have some new friends, some work to do on new itineraries to Chiapas, Oaxaca, and themed trips to Mexico City. And I have a fresh disgust for Cancun–no more now on this as I have resolved not to be […]
