Visiting the Home of Frida Kahlo

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

I have been living in Chicago for the past 7 years until a recent return to my hometown of Madison, WI. For the past 3 years, I was a freelance writer for the Chicago Tribune. It started with a blog about Couchsurfing and led to a second blog about events and venues in Chicago.I enjoyed writing so much that I started my own blog and travel/leisure Facebook page. I travel as much as possible and can't wait to write about it when I get home. My current addiction is Europe. I can't get enough and explore new countries every year.
