… I am now a (temporary) resident of Mexico! After months of silly paperwork, I finally got my resident card and a CURP, which is an important ID number here, similar to the SSN in the States. I can now open a bank account and apply for work permission. A huge shout-out and thank-you to […]
It occurred to me to bring along a proper camera during my walk to the gorgeous Santísimo Redentor (Holy Redeemer) church to receive ashes for Ash Wednesday, the opening of Lent. “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
A few weeks back, David’s cousins and I visited the Museo Frida Kahlo, known as the Casa Azul, in Coyoacán, one of my favorite parts of the city. I was impressed by how much of the house visitors are allowed to explore and get right up close to, like Frida’s studio. (Sadly, as I was too cheap […]

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 […]
