Hola. Me llamo Larissa.
Steve and I just got back from spending five days in Mexico City for some work-related training. Yes, my job occasionally sends me to lovely and exotic places. Jealous?
It was my first time there, and I was thrilled to revisit my youth and practice the Spanish phrases that Sesame Street taught me through catchy songs. Poor Steve (whose Spanish is quite excellent) had to put up with my endless questions. What does that sign say? What is she talking about? How do I say “another shot of tequila, please”?
I mostly picked up the important words: torta (the best sandwiches you’ll ever eat), liquidos de fresa (strawberry and milk smoothie), and of course, cerveza (beer). I could have stayed just for the food alone.
The people, culture, and entire experience was wonderful, and I wish we could have visited longer. Here are a few pictures of our adventures.
More photos from the trip here. Adios.
