|hola mexico city - the view from our window|
Andy and I both LOVED Mexico. What a wonderful country to travel around and explore. We had been meaning to visit for so long now, it was great to finally arrive and experience all it's goodness for ourselves - and we were not disappointed, at all.
Our first port of call was Mexico City.
Mexico City is massive, like 20 million people massive. We had heard many fabulous tales about the city from various sources and were really looking forward to checking it out. Based in the gorgeous Condesa neighbourhood, we spent five jam-packed days exploring as much of the city as possible. From the historical centre, to colourful neighbourhoods, markets to pre-hispanic ruins, there is so much richness in Mexico City. And the food. Oh the food! We found so many incredible little eateries and bars, especially in Condesa and neighbouring Roma area, adding greatly to our experience of the city.
It wasn't long at all before Mexico City crept it's way towards the top part of our 'favourite cities of the world' list.
Below are snaps from our first couple of days. I'll be posting much from Mexico City, including our visit to Frida Kahlo's house, the pre-hispanic ruins of Teotihuacan and lots of pretty little neighbourhoods.
Next: La Lagunilla flea market.
