April 8 - April 13, 2017
After months of cold and rainy weather in New York City, we boarded the plane and took off for a hard-earned vacation to Mexico City. After we flew in, we met up with Matt, JBH, and Atira, and the 5 of us spent the next few days eating, walking, and laughing as we scratched the surface of this beautiful, gigantic city.
We stayed in a beautiful house in Colonia Juarez, which served as a great home base between all the museums, neighborhoods, and restaurants.
One of the most striking things about the city was the vibrant color - every corner we turned we were surrounded by brilliant blues, greens, purples, and pinks
Mexico City also has about 150 museums in the city limits - the most of any North American city. We spent time at 4 - the calm and mysterious Cárcamo de Dolores, the modern and eclectic Museo Soumaya, the former home of Frida Kahlo: La Casa Azul, and the incredible National Museum of Anthropology.

We fell in love with the beautiful public spaces and monuments, the gorgeous architecture, and the lush gardens and parks throughout the city
And oh my goodness... The food.
Coulton even had his first taste of chapulines - crispy, fried crickets served up in a crunchy tostada!
Our best meal by far was at Pujol.
Mexico City was incredible - it was hard to imagine that so much culture, history, food, and beauty could be found in one place. Above all, it was incredible to share so many new memories with such great company. Hasta luego, México!
