cabaret, citadels, flowers... just another weekend in Mexico City




Last weekend was just another normal weekend in Mexico City. You know, like going to a cabaret near the historic centre (La Perla) that has been around for some 40 years, that has appeared in a few movies and videos, and that had a special children's day-inspired show with a number of acts that only those of us around 40 or older could have related to...




Or walking to a nearby historical landmark (the Monument to the Revolution, no less) at sunset for a show of gorgeous colours, a band mini-concert, and then craft beer at a garage-cum-hipster-bar...






Or walking around the Ciudadela, another one of Mexico City's historic sites, and seeing contemporary art, and an open-air play with a small hilly park as stage, or beautiful bright flowers and bright blue skies... 







Or having vegan brunch at the usual haunt (Volver; nobody can beat their vegan enchiladas with nut cheese and tempeh!), while discovering a new bagel place on the way there...



Yeah, just another ordinary, unremarkable weekend in Mexico City...
