MEXICO CITY II

DSC_6908
Pictures by James Vyn

GREEN GARDEN On our second day in Mexico city, our only wish was to extend time and forget our total jet lag ( I was indeed kind of falling head in my cereal bowl in the morning). So we decided to keep our feet and minds busy by planning a huge day full of exciting activities with the lovely Wong sisters from the Pink Magnolia team who invited us on this journey. Our day started with a visit of their showroom in the center of the city. It was so great to see Paola’s backstage work, how she comes up with her creative ideas and also be able to touch her new SS13 collection which I saw during the fashion week. Though her previous collection was very lolita inspired, with a lot of heart shaped details and bright colours, this new collection is more mature and elegant with swarovski embelished garments which completely capture the light : reason why her collection has been called ”Baby Light My Fire”. We decided it was time to go as soon as my stomach started to make weird noises, the thing is that I am constantly hungry in the morning and I usually eat multiple small breakfasts before lunch time… Yes I know, it’s weird. So we decided to head over the center in order to find a nice spot to grab a snack. The girls brought me to a very cool mexican café called Cielito were they serve the most amazing Horchata, a drink made of rice milk an infused with cinnamon, simply delicious. Since we don’t have a froyo in Switzerland, or perhaps I am simply not aware that there is a good one, I thought it could be the perfect occasion to satisfy my sweet tooth by indulging at yogurt land. I swear, I was completely feeling like a little kid in a candy shop. Somebody should open a froyo bar in Geneva darn it.

Once our stomach was filled with good things, we headed straight to a very popular place situated in the center of Mexico city : the Bellas Artes palace. It was the occasion to fulfill our touristic needs and make a couple of really nice souvenir pictures. The sun was shining bright that day and you guys can’t even imagine how good it felt to be able to wear a simple shirt and skirt. I missed this so much! We hanged out by the Palace for a little while, simply enjoying the weather and the moment. Later that day we decided to go for a long and relaxing dinner at the Tori-Tori restaurant. It is considered as one of the best and most exclusive japanese restaurant in mexico city and has the speciality of mixing some mexican traditions with japanese cuisine. The architecture of the place is beyond amazing, this is what I call a purely unbelievable lifestyle experience. The entrance is actually hidden behind a little black door which you barely see from the street, however once entering you can discover a huge garden and an incredibly modern building. James and I have fallen in love with the tea room located on the second floor, I think I could be sitting there drinking tea all day long. You know guys, my stomach isn’t the toughest one so spicy food is good for one night but not two. On our first day I had the chance to enjoy some delicious mexican dishes which means a lot of chillies and spices! I really wanted to eat some comforting food and avoid over eating spicy cuisine. So yeah, perhaps it’s sad to eat japanese while in Mexico… but not if you’re in one the most hyped place of the city, and especially one where you can have mochis!
