She has drawers full of sequins, lace, brocades, pearls, jewelry, fabrics, buttons and whatever other embellishments catch her eye. As you can see, she loves bright, bold colors.
Arturo and his mom met her a couple of years ago since she was also a gallery owner and Arturo seems to know tons of people in the arts. She owned her first gallery, located in Barcelona, together with her younger twin sisters. All three spent most of their time in Mexico City where they were very well known in the artistic community.
Our next stop was to eat at a neighborhood restaurant. You know the kind of simple, but great food kind of place that isn't in the tourist books but where all the locals go? That's this one. It is right in front of one of Latin America's oldest radio station, XEW. Sorry but I don't know the name of the restaurant. Next time. They have the best enchiladas in mole - I may have mentioned that before - as well as pancita and chicken soup. Lots of other good things too.

We rounded off the day walking around the center. Arturo's mom is a great guide considering that she lived there for many years and Alfonso was born in the historic center.
