Mexican encore 2014

Mexico City

26 hours after leaving Brisbane we arrived in Mexico City [1], but …

… not too tired to walk a block to El Califa, a famous taco joint for a couple of Modelos (Mexico’s best beer) and 6 pastores each (small meat & pineapple tacos with a variety of sauces) – just what we needed to sleep all night.

This time we stayed at Casa Comtesse a lovely B&B in the leafy and tranquil barrio La Condesa – a residential and restaurant district full of fading Mexican art deco buildings. Now it’s artsy and trendy.
