48 Hours in Mexico City

We have a deep love for the Yucatan and have been dreaming to visit Mexico City (and Our Lady).

Buy 1 get 1 from Alaska Airlines + points and SPG points later, we booked 2 nights away! Mexico City is only a 3.5 hour flight from Los Angeles, so leaving felt like no big deal.

We ended up staying in Polanco at Hotel Habita (because that was the hotel our amount of SPG points would cover) and I think that’s the #1 thing we would have changed— almost everywhere we wanted to go was in Roma so we had to take Uber a lot which wasn’t a huge deal because after a weekend of taking Uber everywhere (including to and from the airport), it was only $38 for the entire weekend. But! we just would have been better in Roma.

Felix did great on his first flight! Even did great with the 1.5 hour line through customs.

Once through, we took an Uber from the airport to our hotel, and found somewhere nearby for first dinner. We popped into this seafood restaurant and right after we ordered our drinks this loud siren started blaring but we just assumed it was an ambulance or police outside but then everyone in the restaurant started to stand up and go outside. The server came over and said something to us about going outside and we just stared at him confused then in English he said, “Go outside. Alarm. Earthquake.”……….

Daniel and I speak an okay amount of Spanish but the language barrier felt gigantic in that moment.

We went outside and people were answering their phones saying “Estoy bien!!!!” and we were looking around seeing this— sky scrapers and people pointing at the wires and swaying buildings trying to figure out what was going on.

January

 

Rang in the New Year having to come home 2 hours into a New Years Party because Prim was throwing up.

Lake Arrowhead. Joshua Tree. Palm Springs.

Little did we know that we were moving in 2 months, so it’s sweet to see some special final memories at our old house.

December 2017

December


Thomas Fire. Thomas Fire. Thomas Fire. All nighter waiting and waiting to see if we’d have to leave. Listening to the police scanner hearing them send engines a few blocks away and not knowing what is burning or not. Wondering if our parish, the iconic San Buenaventura Mission burnt down (it didn’t! The fire got right up behind it but it survived. Funnily enough, most people of Ventura worried about the Mission— Catholic or not. xo). We had friends lose their home, friends evacuated for days, we evacuated during the day because of the smoke. All the orange light. December was a blur because this fire consumed so much of our everyday lives.
