Our business at the consulate was taken care of extremely well, and we were ready for some lunch. We strolled around in the vicinity, before coming upon an Emir Cafe (one of a local chain). Our insanely-deprived-of-hummus-selves were extremely happy, even though niether our hummus nor baba ganoush were fantastic. But, something is better than nothing, our coffees were excellent and Little N also approved of the meal!
Next, we headed into Polanco, one of the nicest areas of the city, to find some groceries for Passover. We did a drive by of the nice shops, got our goods, and got back in the car. Little N finally fell asleep, which prompted us to decide to continue our drive, so we headed south towards Coyoacan. We made the mistake of getting on the pereferico (ring road), totally missing our turn off, and circling our destination multiple times until we finally got it right!
We were extremely happy to be out of the car, and popped right in to the Leon Trotsky museum. We let Little N play on the grass before actually checking out the rest of the small museum, which included preserved rooms of his house, and various Soviet era memorabilia. While the museum was not on our original agenda, it was an interesting destination.
From there, we walked towards Frida Khalo's blue house. Obviously it is a huge tourist attraction, and it was packed! As a museum it was pretty disappointing with only a couple rooms with paintings, and mostly just the restored house. The visit was short and we were ready to find some lunch.
After finally eating at a small comida (set lunch menu) place and walking around this relatively quiet neighborhood, we were ready to get back to the apartment. This time we took smaller roads and navigated almost flawlessly back toward the Centro.
