No trip to Mexico City would be complete without a visit to the Frida Kahlo Museum. Frida grew up in this lovely cobalt blue structure, and eventually shared it with her husband Diego Rivera. When Frida died, Diego donated the home and everything in it as a tribute to her. I was awestruck at the fascinating collection including paintings, personal items, memorabilia, and more. The tour ends in a beautiful outdoor courtyard where you can sit and relax.
We paid the ticket price that includes permission to take photos, which roughly amounted to $17 USD for two. The price is less without photos (about $6 per person). I was having a bad hair day and wore a hat, which I discovered isn't allowed. I walked around looking quite ridiculous, so take note fellow hat wearers;)
After spending at least a couple of hours there, I highly recommend wandering around the neighborhood, which is known as Coyoacán. It has a bohemian feel to it with loads of unique shops, cafes, and people watching. We dined at a top-notch restaurant called Los Danzantes, where I was introduced to Mezcal and authentic Mexican cuisine.
I think it's time to watch the film again, as I'm guessing I will see “Frida” differently now. link
