Mexico City, the oldest capital of the New World, is rich in its indigenous and colonial history.
- Start your day with huevos rancheros for breakfast.
- Visit Museo Nacional de Antropología. The first seven galleries on the ground floor are in chronological order. Plan to spend a good part of the day at the museum; worth it.
- Spend 3-4 days exploring the city and its vicinity. Enjoy the architecture, people, food, music, markets, etc.
P.S. If you complain about smog and overpopulation in Mexico City, I take it you haven’t been to Beijing or Delhi.
Frida Kahlo is my favorite Mexican artist. In this Pxley Extra, James Payne explains ‘The Two Fridas’ in his series “Great Art Explained.”
