Yesterday we went to a great Mexico City neighborhood called Condesa. I love it there and it is my fervent hope that we will sell or rent our house in the suburb Satelite and go rent an apartment in Condesa. It has gorgeous parks that are super dog friendly, the kind of 1940's Mexican architecture that I love, tons of cafes and small ethnic restaurants, bookstores, small shops, and this is very important - no shopping malls! You can walk and walk there and not get bored. It's the kind of neighborhood where you meet people from all over the world and can get together for book clubs or just to chat at one of the local coffee shops. I really want to move there right now! I didn't take many pictures while we there because I was too busy looking for "Apartment for Rent" signs. Here is one picture though of Arturo and the dogs while we took a rest in one of the parks:

Right alongside the park you can buy any type of art supply - canvases, frames, paint brushes, oils, acrylics, pastels or watercolors. Seeing all those supplies made me wish I could paint or draw but no such luck.
