Frida Kahlo's Blue House


We will visit Coyoacan, a former colonial village, located in the south of Mexico City. Coyoacan still has its own identity, with narrow colonial-era streets, plazas, cafes and a lively bohemian atmosphere. We will walk along Coyoacan's main square, churches and beautiful old buildings. We will visit Frida Kahlo's home, where she was born, lived much of her life, and eventually died. The house is a treasure trove, not only of her paintings, but also of innumerable artifacts associated with her and her husband, famous muralist Diego Rivera. We will continue to the floating gardens of Xochimilco, which were once connected by a causeway to the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan, now Mexico City, and where the Aztecs grew much of their food. We will navigate the canals on board of a typical 'trajinera', a small boat decorated with flowers, and will discover how Aztec life was before the conquest.

Karina helped bring alive a dream of visiting the Museum; she imparted her knowledge and love of the languages used in the names of people and places which were especially valued and useful for understanding the cultures and historic events of the times of interest.
