Eight of our Favorite Photos from Mexico City

In December 2008, we spent a few days shy of a week in Mexico City. Few cities have captured our hearts quicker than this bustling metropolis. Nearly every corner we turned led to tasty street food, colorful artwork, incredibly friendly people, and amazing architecture. As a city sometimes shunned for its turbulent past, we're hard pressed to name a more welcoming city anywhere in the world.

We'll be returning to Mexico City once again in just a few days (this time with my oldest sister and brother-in-law!). So in honor of our upcoming trip, we'd like to share with you a few of our favorite photos from our time in the Ciudad des los Palacios (City of Palaces).

'The Stock Exchange – shiny!

Nothing constructive to say just

FIRST POST!

Glad the site is back up. I plan on enjoying digging around and reading your new, and old entries

Hey Janet! It has been a long time, hasn't it? Hedgehogs are kind of pokey. :)

Belly is doing great! He loves where we live now: he plays by the ocean every day even when it's snowing. You'd never know he lived in the jungle before. Right now he's curled up in his doggy bed looking out of the sliding glass doors at the birdies. (China the cat has joined him too.)

Oh, my gosh…your new site is FANTASTIC. The wee bits of sticky-tape at the photo corners, the comments graphics, the cute hedgie-art…I've spent the past couple of minutes just running my mouse up-and-down the sidebar menu. :)

In sum: You guys are so much cooler than I'll ever be.

I've spent the past couple of minutes just running my mouse up-and-down the sidebar menu.

Don't look now, my friend, but we've added a few more sidebar options (and so there's more hedgie art too)! :)
