Date Day with Nicholas

Early morning view of city from our room 

Last Sunday, we got up bright and early and headed to a famous little brunch spot in our neighborhood, El Bondy, and dined on delicious Conchas and tostada con huevos y salsa verde. We beat the crowd and had a great seat to people watch and soak up some of the warm sun. From there, we walked over to the famed history museum, Mueso Nacional de Antropologia. We got there just after it opened and before the Sunday crowds.

The museum flows outdoors and is beautiful 
How I would like my skull covered when I pass away
Afterwards, we crossed the street to Chapultepec park to walk through the many trails and enjoy the beauty, peace and quiet in the center of noisy Mexico City. 
Chapultec in Nahuatl means "At the grasshopper hill"

That night, we ate at a great neighborhood restaurant and Nicholas got to try mole for the first time and we split a small bottle of Mexican wine. We had no idea they even produced wine here! Then we grabbed a cab to see the Ballet Folklorico at the spectacular Palacio de Bellas Artes.

To say that we crammed in as much as was humanly possible is no lie. Who knows when Nicholas will have break like this and since it's his first time in D.F. we wanted to get in the hits :)
