She: Ended the year with a Korean feast at our favorite hole-in-the-wall
He: Got to get a picture... A misspell that can't be ignored

Through their eyes - Mexico City

So for Thanksgiving weekend we went to Mexico City! It has become our little thing now... Skipping the Thanksgiving hoopla for some adventuring... See what we did last year here.

We packed a bunch on our little 5 day get away... I will try to condense some of the kiddos favorite activities.... Here we go...

Visiting The Museum of Anthropology


Visiting the Aztec ruins of Teotihuacan and getting the insight from the best guide anybody can ask for... My parents' friend (for more than 50 years) Sr. Arturo Garibay



Walking around colonial Zocalo

Sketching and marveling at the Diego Rivera Murals in Ministry of Education and the National Palace



Walking around Bosque de Chapultepec


Visiting Frida Khalo's Blue house - Coyoacan (Miss V loves some Frida as documented here and here)



Walking around the Coyoacan and San Angel neighborhoods



Visiting the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe and being awestruck by the devotion of the Mexican people... We were delighted to experience offerings from various indigenous groups... Just extraordinary


Picnicking  with a show - Bosque de Chapultepec


Speaking of food... Eating all the fabulous foods (sometimes with a show, sometimes in a cave...)

We are still hungry for Mexico... Going there for a few days only opens your appetite... We want to see more... Hopefully we can make it there again next year.

See another "Through their Eyes" post from Mexico here.

See all Through their Eyes posts here

We're back!

More pictures from Mexico tomorrow!

He: El Chapulin Colorado... A favorite show from when I was growing up... I had to get him a t-shirt, I just had to...
She: Wore the same sweater I wore on my first trip to Mexico City 30+ years ago

Have a great week everybody
