Mexico

I was born and raised in Mexico. I moved to San Antonio when I was 14, but I still go back every year to see friends and family. I love the rich culture. The language and music, the amazing food and the way the people smile; Mexico is so beautiful. Although my family lives in Monterrey, in the northern part of Mexico, I often find myself in Mexico City. All the restaurants, all the trendy boutique hotels; it’s an amazing city and its cultural richness.

The museums are amazing, like Museo de Antropologia and The Soumaya, both icons of Mexico City.  I just had a Private Visit with one of the Historians at the Soumaya and it is something I can easily arrange and not to be missed!  It has one of the biggest collections of the French sculptor,  Auguste Rodin, who I love (although, not exclusively!)  Visiting Tenochtitlan and doing the pyramids on a balloon ride is breathtaking!  Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera are two of my favorites and Casa Azul in Coyoacán, where Frida was born and where she died is a jewel!  The interrelations of her work and that house are a joy to explore!  I can go on and on… Mexico City I always say is another Paris… a never ending wonder.
