Fun fact: I just realized that this is the first time in my life that I have gone the entire month of March without hearing about March Madness.
Anyways…ugh, I wish I was better at dedicating time to writing my blog posts because I enjoy it so much and so many things happen that I want to share with you all!! This is my month of March recap and it’s almost May — but, better late than never right? 😱
March was pretty uneventful but still full of fun moments and some minor tragedies as is common in the Life of Yuli. 🙂
Below is a pic of the Angel of Independence looking as beautiful as always. This was taken from the window of my medical insurance office as I tried to get over the fact that an idiot popped my blood vessel while withdrawing blood from my arm for a mandatory blood test. And people continue to ask me why I fear going to the doctor’s office… I texted my mother asking if I should fear for my life as a blue/purple bruise began to form – she told me to stop being over dramatic which tbh I think was a completely uncalled for comment to make. TY Ju-li-o for the huge bruise that lasted 3 weeks on my arm and made me nauseous every time I looked at it!!
PSA: I have found the best Margherita pizza in Mexico City – it is located on Rio Lerma at a delicious Italian restaurant called Attenti. Hands down a 10/10.
Halfway through March I realized I haven’t been to as many museums in Mexico City as I would like. So I woke up one morning and marched right on over to the Museum of Memory & Tolerance – and wow, what an experience.
This is the first time a museum has made me cry — I left feeling truly moved by the exhibits. There is so much hate and violence in the world it’s astounding, but there are also so many silent heroes that have made extraordinary sacrifices in saving lives even if it was at the cost of their own. A person alone cannot and will not change the world but we all have the power to make a difference.
Below is a picture of “El Potencial Perdido” – 20,000 connected crystal tears serving as a memorial to over 2 million children assassinated in genocides all over the world. Lost potential in the loss of so many innocent lives throughout history.
There was a really interesting exhibit that featured cool murals with a mirror that had Trump videos on replay. I was in there for a while because I was intrigued to hear everyone’s comments. It’s kind of scary to walk through this whole museum and see all the violent things that have happened throughout history and then to see such a resemblance in Trump’s words and actions.
After spending several hours in the Museum of Memory and Tolerance, I decided to walk to El Zocalo and on my way there walked past the beautiful Palace of Fine Arts …
… and admired the iglesia y antiguo Convento de San Francisco.
Then I went home and headed to a birthday celebration. 🙂
Found a really cool brunch spot – Jardin de Chapultepec. Bottomless mimosas for 4 hours and over medium eggs with hash browns and toast – felt just like home.
Welp, there you have it. Just a quick little recap of funny stories from March and random side notes of my life here in la Ciudad de Mexique.
Till next time friends! 😛
*disclaimer: I know this isn’t my best written post nor the most entertaining – but I had to write and share it because I don’t want to forget all the fun things I did in March! 🙂 I promise I will put more effort into the next one! 🙂
