Six thirty in the Morning we begrudgingly rose to catch a taxi at 7 am outside the gate. We had packed so just had to shower and dress…not so. I jumped in the shower in order to wake up…I did. No hot water but I put in the shampoo and lathered up to discover…NO WATER! The shower had quickly dwindled to a trickle then NADA. I grabbed my liter of drinking water to wash off the soap…then another…then another.
I dried off and left to catch the taxi waiting for us. Bad beginning to a Great Day.
We arrived, checked in and were in the restaurant eating pancakes by 7:30.
We flew out around nine and arrived at El Principal Hotel by 11 am, after catching another taxi at the Mexico City airport.
We unpacked and caught a Taxi (they are so cheap in Mexico) to Frido Kahlo’s Blue House, home, on Valentine’s Day and a long line to enter. We got in it and within a half and hour were touring the home and gardens. Great choice for a start on a Great Day.
This is the Coyoacan Artist Neighborhood that featured a Saturday Bazaar that was one of the largest in Mexico. We wandered around lost without a map until we encountered the Mercado and the Bazaar. It encompassed the whole center of the neighborhood including a large park where a “pow wow” dance was taking place.Valentine’s Pow Wow Video?
We wandered through the markets, art exhibit, crowds of people out for Valentine’s Day, the Dancing the ended with a light lunch at a nice side street cafe.
