Mexico City has some amazing sites and culture to offer. Here’s the best of what I saw (quite a lot!!). TEMPLO MAYOR Something that strikes you about Mexico, so evident in Mexico City, is the juxtaposition of the truly ancient, with the brand new. Take for example the pyramid ruins, ‘Templo Mayor’, discovered just last century in heart of Mexico City by some electronic company … Continue reading Mexico City
Its even better in Zipolite this time round. I’m not sick, I have one or 2 friends – (though this is a place that is much much easier to enjoy on your own than the colder climes of Oaxaca City) and I’m just a bit more adjusted to how things work here, including getting used to what food to order. Oh, and there’s just one or 2 other small … Continue reading Zipolite take 2
Oaxaca City = really pretty. Something I noticed since I arrived in Mexico are the bright colours everywhere. Here the colonial houses are painted in beautiful bold colours which contrast dramatically with the bright blue skies. They have amazing mercados (markets), and I wandered into one for some lunch one day – its was a huge indoor space made of comidas (eateries) next to one another … Continue reading Oaxaca Ciudad, Mexico
I made the mistake of going for a walk in Oaxaca City. As it turns out, the maps are sometimes accurate and sometimes not. So I make my way somewhere OK, then walk back without the map – but as it turns out also, all streets in this town look the same! There are some roads I get to and they are just not on … Continue reading D is for: Disorientated
Something they are really good at here in Mexico is waiting. That’s something I’ve been having to do rather a lot of recently. If in doubt, the culture seems to be – wait. Its a philosophy granted, and no doubt partly why the Mexicans seem to be such warm, laid back people. But in being frustratingly forced to wait so long, I couldn’t help thinking … Continue reading Good things…
They say a picture paints a thousand words… well see below for my 18,000 word essay on Zipolite, Mexico. Its chilled, friendly, there’s good food (on the whole..) and you can swim naked in the sea without feeling (too!) self conscious (who knew nudists beaches were so easy going?!). I was there during a quiet period which probably helped, it could get crazy at busier times I would … Continue reading Zipolite, Mexico
So I’m bursting with stuff to say about my Mexico trip so far, and am only just now getting the chance to sit down and write again, but before I do this I really have to mark the fact I now have 100 followers – it may not seem a lot to some people but it just pleases me no end!! Its also a chance to … Continue reading 100 Followers!
I don’t know how to start this really. Not even sure I want to post about it – it’s so sad. Still, it’s so present, so important, and such an extreme example of where exercising the freedom that is so crucial to my survival now (see: Kids & Joy & Selfish Me) is at odds with the other things happening in my life. Very sadly, my … Continue reading Dilemma
I have 3 criteria for the people I casually date; We are attracted to eachother We are nice to eachother and can communicate (ok maybe that’s 1.5…) They are reliable. For someone I haven’t yet been on a date with I have just ONE criteria; They are reliable. Because quite frankly, someone I’ve been speaking to online is 100% useless to me if that’s all … Continue reading My 3 Casual Dating Criteria
