My mom and I just landed. Our first stop, Mexico City. Stay tuned for Frida Kahlo’s museum and Diego Rivera’s murals. How great it feels to speak  Spanish again and the speedy Metro system makes exploring this grand city a breeze!

The city center, or Zocalo

Upon arriving in Mexico, I recommend finding a small taqueria busy with locals. The owner may have to come find you as you patiently wait across the street for one of its five tables, but it’ll be worth it!

Arriving on January 5th, the city is in celebration of the Three Kings. The children receive gifts from their parents and everyone eats a special cake that is made for this occasion. With a carnival, piñatas, ice skating and sledding in the town plaza (a ramp was built and snow brought in) the kids sure seem to be having a great time.
