Hello, internet! Sorry that it’s taken me so long to update. Here are five more items I’ve learned during my 14 months in Mexique. #1: Never rely on the consistency of services like water, gas, electricity, or internet. I’ve experienced outages of all of these at one point or another, sometimes simultaneously. Once before a […]
The fabulous Museo Mexicano del Diseño (MUMEDI) surpassed my expectations today. It is currently dedicated 100% to Wonder Woman! Here’s what I mean: through August, they’re hosting an exhibit called “Mujer Maravilla y el Poder de la Creatividad” or “Wonder Woman and the Power of Creativity.” Dozens of Mexican artists created brazaletes inspired by Wonder Woman’s cuffs […]

David Lida, the author and […]
One of the first pictures I took in Mexico City– it will always be my favorite. D was the perfect tour guide during my first visit (summer of 2013). After taking this photo, we made a mad dash across the very busy glorieta (traffic circle or roundabout) surrounding the base of the angel. She is a […]
