It's been a long time since my last post...bad blogger! I have been busy preparing for my trip to Mexico (and trying to get work finished before hand!).
I am here now, after a few nice days in San Diego. I am staying put in Mexico City for 2 and a bit weeks which is very exciting. I have lots of family here which is even better.
I was finally able to give a copy of my book 'My Abuela's Table' to my abuela. She was very, very happy. I hope I did her proud. I am wishing I had taken a photo of the moment I gave it to her, but alas, I think I was a bit too nervous at the time!
Yesterday was my first day in Mexico City. I have been here a number of times before, but never have I seen the city looking so clean and green. Amazing. I could even see the volcanoes in the distance covered in snow (they used to always be covered by smog - not anymore).
I went to the Museum of Anthropology - which was AMAZING. Again, I have been there before, but as a little kid with not much appreciation for what was in front of me. But this time around I was inspired beyond belief. Especially by the Peyote bead work - a few photos below. You will see what I mean.
I am off to Chapultapec - the Castle in Mexico city. I went as a kid and was blown away by the murals and can't wait to see it all again. I will blog about that in the next few days!
Meanwhile, here are some photos from yesterday. Apologies for the quality - I took them on my iPhone!
