Condesa - My Kind of Neighborhood

I know that I've mentioned once or twice how much I would love to live in Condesa, a vibrant, fun and dog friendly neighborhood in Mexico City.  Well, I'm about to talk about it again.  We went there yesterday with the dogs and I only became more determined to someday soon move there.  While we live in a lovely suburb called Satelite, it just so happens that I'm too much of a city person and a suburb is too quiet and laid back for me.  I need to see lots of people, activity and dogs around me, to say nothing of coffee shops, book stores, fun restaurants and beautiful parks that make my day.

This is one of the parks that I love.  It is actually sponsored by the pet food company Pedigree and dogs are everywhere. 

Here come two beautiful Dobermans.  We had to get out of their way because Poukie went nuts and decided he wanted to fight them both.  He only wants to do that because he knows we will save him from himself at the last minute.  Goofy dog.

The architecture is a blend of the old (meaning late 1800's to early 1900's) and the modern.  I'd love to live in one of the older buildings - all I need is an apartment.  Two bedrooms would be nice.

This is an example of the modern style.

And here are some of the older buildings.  I love this one as it conveniently has a restaurant on the street level that serves pizza!

There is a coffee shop that I wanted to find because they have a book club that meets there bi weekly.  Unfortunately, I didn't bring the address with me because I didn't know we were going to Condesa until we were half way there.  When I told Arturo that it would have been nice to know where I was going - I thought we were going to look at used cars since our '87 VW is not the most comfortable car around - he told me that two days ago I had said I wanted to go to Condesa.  I said that was true, but since he didn't even answer me when I suggested that, how the heck was I to know that he actually listened to what I was saying.  Not to complain, but I think that half the time that I'm telling him things, I'm actually just talking to the dogs who really do seem to listen to me.  Too bad they can't talk back.

Anyway, all I need to do now is to figure out how to get us to Condesa.   Updates will follow!
