Magical Mexico City

I just returned from a fascinating and slightly crazy trip to Mexico City. I went to investigate a cache of old school supplies, maps and charts from the 1940s. It had been more than 12 years since I last visited the city and it has been calling me back all this time.

The maps and charts were in the collection of a funky, independent family museum called MUJAM. The museum houses the huge personal toy collection of Roberto Shimizu. It is so worth a visit if you find yourself in Mexico City.

I will post more photos of the museum soon and of some local flea markets that we visited. There was too much cool stuff to fit in one blog post.

 And, of course, the food was delicious too!
