On a weekend trip back to Mexico City, I went to the Frida Khalo Museum. Its vibrant blues and greens, the building screams individuality. Having the ability to walk through her house, look at her art and clothes and stunning corsets was an amazing sight to behold. Beautiful home and beautiful woman.

In preparation for our OU family Thanksgiving dinner, my friends and I went to the local market for fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats! The people were incredibly kind and always greeted us with smiling faces. And you can’t beat those prices.

One of the many amazing ofrendas on Día de los Muertos. On a trip with my México Mágico class to Tochimilco, we were allowed to visit the ofrendas of local families. Upon arrival in their homes, we were offered a variety of local drinks and homemade bread. I came home with 4 loaves of bread.

Great Pyramid of Tenochtitlán aka Museo del Templo Mayor with a view of Mexico City’s zócalo. The farther in you go, the deeper into history you venture. In the photo, you are able to see the many layers of construction that occurred throughout the location’s history.

One of my favorite photos from my entire time in Puebla! Taken in front of the Church of Santo Domingo de Guzmán in Oaxaca. While we only spend a long weekend in this city, it was one of the greatest places I went to while in Mexico. 10/10 would return for a much longer stay!

This is the Church of Santo Domingo, one of the most beautiful churches in all of Puebla! Covered in gold leaf, it is yet another one of the many beautiful churches that were built upon the unfortunate arrival of the Spanish.

This was on one of the countless walks toward UPAEP, our local university in Puebla. Since we lived in one of the nicest areas of the city, my morning commute was surrounded by fancy restaurants and new businesses.
