Vendors add spice to the streets and parks.
Fiesta at Paul's; in the adjoining room, people were dancing salsa.

The bridge that connects Frida's and Diego's pads.
San Angel Inn

The Zócalo, one of the largest city squares in the world.
Several of Botero's wonderful "fat lady" statues grace the square.

Zocalo horsies

Palace of Fine Arts

Bellini revolving restaurant on the 45th Floor of the World Trade Center
Delicioso outdoor cafe breakfast.

Perros in Parque Mexico

Mercados galore within walking distance of Paul's place.
No, these aren't statues, they are xoloitzcuintles.

Dave and me hanging with Diego at Delores' pad.

The fabulous greenhouse cafe at the Delores Olmedo Museum.

Xochimilco canal boat, with champagne.

With Raymundo, our driver extraordinaire.

Dinner con amigos.

Climbing the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan.

Standing where the ancients did.
Our appetites sparked by all that climbing, we ate a great meal at La Gruta, a restaurant in a cave.
Sabor Amor...the flavor of love.

I never thought I wanted to go to Mexico, but this really inspires me to give it a try, if not to see those Xolo's and the dog parking where they're just kicking it at the park!
