Mexico City – last day

Not much time on the last day, but we did walk back to the park.  We considered the Museum of History, but decided to wait for another time. 

Next time:  the pyramids, this neighborhood – see link below, and the Frida Kahlo museum.

Mexico City – New Years Day

Day 3 – Explored the Condesa and Roma neighborhoods.   Enjoyed walking on Amsterdam Ave.  Made our way to Mercado Roma – a hip and trendy market and food court with a biergarten on top.   Other than being slammed, making seating a challenge, it was a good time!   The biergarten was less crowded and gave us an opportunity to relax and enjoy the mostly sunny day. 

Mexico City – New Years Eve

Day 2 – walked down to the Alameda, Zocalo, National Palace and National Cathedral.   

Lunch and mojitos at Le Casa de Los Sirenas.  The food here is amazing!!

Had some wine in the best concierge club EVER before heading outside to check out the festivities.   It took a while for the crowd to build, but the music was lively.  Finally the countdown and fireworks at midnight!

Mexico City

Day 1 – walked to the Museum of Anthropology and explores the surrounding park.  Had beers at La Terazza around the corner from the hotel and then took a disco nap before getting ready to go out with Gabriel and Claudio.  

Dinner at Los  Danzantes http://www.losdanzantes.com/about-2/ in the CoyoĆ”can neighborhood south of the city.   

Walked through the squares and markets – tried some mole from Puebla that was amazing and a drink called espuma de cacao. 

A day at the beach..

Jerry, Paul, Jim, Missy, and the kids loaded up in the Kia van and headed off for a day at the beach!  Despite the cold Pacific, the kids managed to get soaked and have fun anyway..


Dinner was a pepperoni pizza and the plainest cheese bread imaginable from Pizzicato, with an assortment of leftovers and Sour Flush Plungers for the kids compliments of Jerry.  If we start to have ant problems, I know who I’m coming after!!        candy
