Mexico City Jet Lag Journal: Condesa DF
All + Sundry recently took a trip to Mexico for some cultural immersion and fresh, spicy food.
My previous experience with Mexico involved a one-day stop in Cancun while on a cruise. I was a kid with my parents, and we visited the Mayan ruins, offered my father up as a sacrifice, and made it back to the ship in time to eat mass quantities of non-Mexican food with other Americans. This was a much more colorful, chic, and intellectual experience!
We will be posting a few Jet Lag Journals for this trip to Mexico City and Quintana Roo, Tulum, and we’ll start with a little hotel porn. Condesa DF (named for the neighborhood, Condesa, and the official Mexico City moniker, distrito federal) is a member of the Grupo Habita hotels and is awash in white, turquoise, and rich, dark mahogany. The rooms were built around a central angular courtyard that streamed in sunlight. This is one of the only dog friendly restaurants, and we started off each morning with a lovely breakfast, a New York Times, and our new bilingual puppy friend Butch.
