Your buildings, your weather, your people, your food, and your museums! But not the traffic..
My family and I went about two weekends ago just to explore museums. We had been almost two years before and we had fallen in love with the city. There are so many things to do that we just needed to go back. It’s so beautiful and historical (it’s no wonder UNESCO even declared it such!) and its weather is just so perfect. Everyday it was at 70s and at night 60s and rainy. Nothing compared to this Texas heat in the 100s.. One night it was even around 50º! That’s like our winter here!! :( How I miss it.. It was the perfect vacation for us. Did I mention we even saw the Addams Family musical? :D
A few pictures from our days together + pictures from the past time we went:
Our airplane had this really cool feature where the front of the airplane had a camera so we could see what was happening on the little screens in front of us. Seeing the landing was awesome.
Yes, Mexico City has a castle in it, and it is amazing. It also has a forest where there many museums including this one. You take a little train and it takes you up this hill to the castle. I really, really suggest you visit it. It was my favorite museum.
In the forest there were two other museums; the museum of anthropology (MNA) and the museum of modern art (MAM). My family and I went to MNA for an afternoon. Dad took me to the MAM to see a photography exhibition by Gisèle Freund. There were five expositions but we only got to see three because of time. Believe me, I would’ve spent all day there but I felt bad for dragging my dad around. He enjoyed it very much but I could tell he was hungry and a little tired. He kept insisting that I keep exploring the museum, but no, I felt bad.
^ This exhibition was by Lorena Wolffer. There were various artifacts with numbers on them. You would be given a binder and in there were stories matching the artifact. Those stories were of abused women. Abused by their husbands, coworkers, daughters, boyfriends, you name it. It was very powerful.
These are a little outside Mexico City. You can climb them, some not all the way. I climbed one of them but I almost had vertigo up there! It was so bad. My sister and dad made it up top. I just went halfway and sat down. But what a view!
Frida kahlo’s house
In this house Frida Kahlo was born, raised, and died. It was changed a little since that time, but you still get the feel of it. The walls are covered by her paintings. You can take pictures but you have to pay.
We’ll definitely visit you again, Mexico City.
If you’ve ever wanted to, GO! You won’t regret it :)
