Museo Jumex - 10Another museum we visited while in Mexico City was Museo Jumex. The contemporary art exhibitions were very interesting and interactive. I loved watching people play ping pong outside. I just thought this was a great statement whilst people were having fun and enjoying themselves. Did I mention it was high 70s low 80s the entire time we were there?! No wonder the people were so happy and outside all the time! I highly recommend visiting in person or take a virtual tour below:Museo Jumex - 8Museo Jumex - 1 Museo Jumex - 2 Museo Jumex - 4 Museo Jumex - 5 Museo Jumex - 6Museo Jumex - 7

Casa Azul

Casa Azul - 16I can’t believe it’s already the second week of December! Time flew right me because it feels like just yesterday I was in Mexico City over Thanksgiving break. Going on vacation over the break was one of the best ideas ever. I had planned to meet my brother, who lives in New York, there and spend some days exploring the city. Our planes arrived just minutes apart from each other and we met at the customs line. It was a cultural and gastronomical trip and sooo much fun.

These are some of my favorite photographs of Casa Azul, the Blue House otherwise known as the Frida Khalo Museum. Frida lived a very interesting and somewhat turbulent life. She fought political issues while painting and writing even though she was severely disabled along with relationship woes with Diego Rivera. I didn’t have too much background knowledge before visiting the museum, but I learned so much about her. One of my favorite parts of the museum, other than the pretty blue hues, was her closet. Because she suffered so much from illness and injury, she created looks/dresses that would cover up her body braces. She didn’t want to have people judge her on what her body was able to physically do, but what her mind was capable of creating and standing up for. I can definitely see why she is a prominent woman hero and why her legacy is so important.

More Mexico City posts coming up this week!
