Everything! I tell you. And don’t get me started on the food! (Although you will read more about that below, as it’s my number one reason.)  Continue reading “8 Reasons That Make Mexico an Appealing Country to Visit”

Mexico City – Bits & Pieces and Roma Norte

mexico city view4

I visited Mexico City for 10 days this month. I wasn’t there for Christmas but Christmas celebrations, decorations and moods weren’t lacking. The trip was pretty routine and I didn’t do anything specific worth blogging about (I don’t really think you care about my adventures of going to the movies, shopping, dining out and hanging out with friends) but I did take some snapshots of the city that I’d like to share with you.  Continue reading “Mexico City – Bits & Pieces and Roma Norte”

A Guide To Traditional Mexican Sweets

Mexican sweets might not be as famous as those from France, Switzerland or the US, but giving the vast variety of pastry, candy and chocolate made and consumed domestically, Mexicans have an incomparable sweet tooth. And chocolate, of course, is one of Mexico’s gifts to the world. Did you know the Aztecs were the first ones to consume the cacao bean (in drink form)?

I was born and raised in Mexico City. I lived there for 18 years of my life before I moved abroad for the first time to London. Currently, I have been living in the US for over 5 years now (plus a few months in India in between), so some of my Mexicans habits have definitely changed over time to adapt to this country.  Continue reading “10 Mexican Habits I Lost When I Moved to the USA”

In my first post about the mercado de Jamaica (Jamaica Market) in Mexico City, I showed the abundant colors of available flowers and plants in the market. But flora is not all there is in this amazing place.

You can find beautiful food too; ready to eat grilled corn and other snacks, stunning fruits and vegetables, seas of candy (traditional and otherwise), and more. Plus, all sizes of bright piñatas, incense and candles, and during Christmas time, any figure you can think of for your nativity scene. This market is very vivid and will be a tour for all your senses. Take the visual tour now: Continue reading “Mercado de Jamaica – A Must Visit In Mexico City Part II”

Mercado de Jamaica – A Must Visit In Mexico City Part I

If you ever need flowers, the mercado de Jamaica (Jamaica market) in Mexico City is the place to be. It used to be Pike Place Market in Seattle for me, but I recently visited this market for the first time and it surpassed my expectations. My mom had been telling me about it for some time and she finally took me in my most recent trip to Mexico.

The colors and the life of the flowers and plants are abundant. The vendors aren’t aggressive and the crowds aren’t bad. It is definitely not a touristy place and let’s hope it stays that way, I just had to share this place.  Continue reading “Mercado de Jamaica – A Must Visit In Mexico City Part I”
