Jetset: Mexico City

Mexico City also known as CDMX – Ciudad de Mexico (sounds bad ass right!?!) has always been on my must-visit list! It’s brimming with rich history, beautiful architecture, and vibrant, urban neighborhoods. The capital city of Mexico is a bustling metropolis and we were excited to dip ourselves in the culture. We spent 5 days and 4 nights in CDMX, mixing our time with a few tourists activities and an open agenda. Here’s what we enjoyed in Ciudad de Mexico….Mexico City! Read more

Day of The Dead Vs Halloween

We celebrated Day of the Dead in Mexico City, MX this year and we had a great time. The entire city participated. There were marches, parades and festivals everywhere, the vibe was outgoing and cool. We also watched Mexican children celebrating Halloween in the streets of Mexico City on November 1st. I found this the most interesting. Children dressed up in costumes from the traditional Dia de los Muertos costumes and would walk up to everyone on the street asking for candy… and people would have candy to give them! Read more

Cafe Is A Mood

As we move from place to place it is comforting to find things that are familiar. Cafe is familiar! From China to Mexico cafes seem to have the same recipe for success. 

  1. Dope laid back music
  2. Strong WiFi
  3. Comfortable seating
  4. Great climate control
  5. Location, location, location

We love cafe’ng. We usually set up a remote office once we find “the right cafes.” It is a whole mood with us. We work our VIPKid classes, get off of work, hit the gym, clean up, and find the perfect cafe to work out of for the day. It really works for us. It hasn’t been working for our waistline but we love the vibe and the people that we meet.

 

Finding #thatcafe, the one that is comfortable and an all out experience to go to is one those things that we are always doing.

Culture is Cafe!

Mezcal y Tequila: The Tale of 2 Spirits

The Tale of 2 Spirits

First off why the hell is some alcohol called spirits. Does it open us up to demonic possession? Was the first alcohol given to us from an angelic being? I mean really what is the deal???

Well, I did a little digging and when I say “a little” I mean, I #Igoogledit and…

A “spirit” is distilled alcohol that contains no added sugar.

The term spirit comes from Middle Eastern alchemy. Dosen’t that sound sinister. The vapor given off and collected during an alchemical process, like in the distillation of alcohol,  was called a spirit of the original material. So there it is our experimenting forefathers deemed it to be a new creation. Now back to the topic.

What is the difference between Mezcal and Tequila?

Immigrating To Mexico

We made it to our new country. Mexico! We are formally aliens of the Yucatan Peninsula. We livin in Merida, Mexico y’all -for the next year…. we think. The life of moving from city to city and country to country is the epitome of freedom to us. We love it! This moment in time is defined by the world wide refugee crisis, the vile actions if ICE and the cavalier, privileged attitude of #Merica. With all of the things going on we are grateful to make the moves that we make. To make the coin that we make and to have found a love to build together. This life and lifestyle suits us to the T. International friends, good drinks, and not knowing where we may be living or what experiences to even anticipate having from month to month is the shiznitz to us. Read more

Medellin’s Cable Car to Park Arvi

Medellin is a beautiful city located in the Antioquia region of Colombia. It is the only city in Colombia with a metro system (train & cablecars and we rode both today)! For us it was a day of firsts. We set out to visit Park Arvi. Park Arvi can only be reached through Medellin’s cable car system, which is connected to their metro system…which is connected to one of the poorest neighborhoods in Medellin. It was an interesting ride.
