Santa Frida




Casa Azul.
It's more like a shrine than a museum, and if it's Frida Kahlo paintings you're looking for, there are better places to find them.
But still, there is nothing like this place.

We were sightseeing in Coyoacán one day, and although i knew the Museo Frida Kahlo was close by, we'd initially planned to go there some other day.
But suddenly we found ourselves on the right street. I recognized the name right away.
There was no reason not to, so we went in.
I hadn't expected to be able to take photos inside the house, but it turns out that you can buy a photo pass and take as many photos, digital and analog, as you like.
For me, that was well worth the money.

The museum was small, it's not a place you can spend hours and hours, but even if you aren't as obsessed with Frida and Diego as i am, it's not a place you wanna miss.

These are some of my favorite photos from my trip, and that's why this post is a bit picture-heavy.
Hope you like them too.

  3. Isn't it crazy, when you know all about Frida's life and then you go there and it's like BAM that's where they worked, that's her fuckin' back brace, that's the bed she DIED in, that's the mirror she used to paint a selfie ... so rad.
