Taxco

January 04, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

It is a small but charming Magical Town nestled in an area surrounded by large hills and mountains, thanks to the intense exploitation of its silver deposits. Its people still live off the commerce and manufacture of objects that the precious metal allows; Baroque constructions erected during the mining boom of the Viceroyalty are still preserved.

Any terrace is good to contemplate those old jewels, the new ones and small ones you have to look for them among the cobbled streets that go up and down everywhere. In addition, Taxco possesses a peculiar beauty, because this magnificent Magical Town has the capacity to move us to another time and space, precisely to the time of the Viceroyal Mexico.

Its beautiful cobbled streets are characterized by their inclination, and almost all of them flow into beautiful squares where it is possible to walk, visit the kiosk or sit on one of its benches.

Tlaxcala

December 03, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

This time we travel to the state of Tlaxcala. Just a short 2 hours from Mexico City you find the state of Tlaxcala known to be the smallest state in Mexico. The views are stunning as you travel to this state. Very notable is the active volcano of Popocatepetl which is visible almost the entire way to the state. We visited an the archaeological zone of Cacaxtla which provides you with endless information about the ancient history of the area. The capital city of Tlaxcala is colorful and rich in culture. There is a relaxing vibe as you walk around the centro historico.

Catrinas

November 06, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Dia de Muertos is a rich tradition in Mexico celebrated the first and second of November. No where can you fully experience this festivity than in the center of Mexico, particularly in the state of Michoacan. I traveled to Mexico and visited Mexico City, Morelia Michoacan, Patzcuaro Michoacan and Tzintzuntzan Michoacan. Locals and visitors flock to makeup artists for colorful face representations of the Catrina. Here are a few of my favorites.

Mexican Street Dogs

June 17, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

In Mexico, you will not find leash laws for your pets. In fact, you might even think dogs don't have owners. Anyhow, as I travel Mexico I have ran into a few lovely creatures. I've put together a quick collection here.

 


Centro Ceremonial Otimi

This is quite an amazing place just a short drive from Mexico City in the state of Mexico. You have the opportunity to drive through peaceful forest scenes that leave you breathless. You pay a minimal fee for parking and admission to the location. The air is fresh and filled with serenity and calm. It's the perfect place for a relaxing afternoon away from a busy lifestyle.
