Before leaving home I thought Mexico is going to be the Mexico we see in the movies or the news.
I had no idea we are going to land in a super modern city.
The stray dogs everyone told me to watch out for, were all Purebred dogs on leashes.
The smelly allies were Bubbly and musical streets with restaurants and bars.
We had a blast for 7 days exploring the city and walking many kilometers, I swear I've never felt so in shape in my life.
We spent our nights at a cute motel called Casa Condesa Amatlan 84 In the Condesa neighborhood And enjoyed learning the new world we landed in.
The kids had a pretty shocking start off but after a few days, we all got the hang of it more or less.
I'de like to share with you some of the places we visited in Mexico City.
zoológico de Chapultepec
I'm not a big Zoo fan and this Zoo just cleared it up to me as to why I'm not!
The animals do not, in any way look happy. It was a pretty sad visit to be perfectly honest.
The kids loved the monkeys, of course, they are the sweetest animal in the universe.
We had enough after half an hour and had much more fun strolling around the Chapultepec park looking at the squirrels jumping around, swinging on the swings, tasting Mexican junk food, and loving it!
Playgrounds of Condesa
We are obsessed with good playgrounds and that’s the first thing we search for when coming to a new place.
Condesa Is full of playgrounds and dog parks and places to roll around on the grass and have fun.
"Cierres jugar" was the kid's first Spanish sentence and they learned it playing with local kids at the playground.
The Anthropology Museum
I'll give you a tip for life!
In the museum act like the queen of England, ok?
Don't be like me AT ALL.
The second we got into the museum we saw a huge water fountain.
And it was so hot out, and I was so excited.
And Sivan had such a rough beginning.
I grabbed her hand and ran with her straight into the water fountain!!
How dumb can I be? Haha, I can't stop laughing while writing this now.
We had such a blast!! But the guards came running and screaming at us that we can't go into the museum wet and that we are very not ok.
Well, from that minute we acted as we literally were under life threat haha.. we were so polite and quiet, the guards stood behind me the whole time.
Back to the museum, it was absolutely beautiful and educational.
I highly recommend visiting there.
Just don't run into the water fountain.
Before entering the museum we wandered around the huge park of the area and we watched an ancient Mesoamerican ceremony/ritual dance "Danza de Los Voladores".
It was exciting and interesting.
