"la cuenta por favor" has got to be the most essential phrase. Getting out of restaurants in Mexico City can be a challenge lol.

yes lol. i went to a food hall type place where you sit and order from like three different people and they all expect you to yell for them and they each give you separate checks and it was honestly a nightmare for me, a tragically polite and patient person. the food was amaaaaazing tho and it's a block from where i'm staying. comedor lucerna. i might actually go back for more tostadas before i turn in. the mango chamoy paleta i had from there was sooooooooo gooooood

also for anyone wondering i have found that this is a fantastic solo female travel destination. nobody has been untoward, it feels safe except for how dark the side streets are at night, people are friendly and i keep having cute experiences with other women here. i ended up sharing an uber from the airport with another solo female traveler from montreal, the paleta girl and i had a cute experience navigating the language barrier and the woman at this brewpub was excited to practice her english with me. my airbnb host is AMAZING but he's czech so idk if he counts

the places i went today:

café nin: this is attached to the panaderia rosetta on calle havre so you can get pastries and breakfast too. very european, full of beautiful hip tourists. super adorable place

café toscano at plaza rio de janeiro. meant to go to buna next door but realized hours later i had the wrong spot lol. also very european with the sidewalk seating overlooking the plaza and big open doors. i just had coffee and juice here, can't speak to the food

goodbye folk vintage boutique. fun curation and the owner was really friendly, but everything was so fucking expensive omg. thrifted polyester for $80 usd are u kidding

under the volcano books. closed because of the bank holiday. will return

museo soumaya. free, so that was nice. gift shop sucked. i love museum gift shops so that you was a bummer. ripoff of the guggenheim concept. didn't care for the way items were arranged. full of amazing art but just weirdly underwhelming all things considered

comedor lucerna. review above lol. highly instgrammable

la ciudadela. this place is huge and can be awkward if you're a highly polite person who doesn't speak spanish. i bought lots of fun souvenirs and stuff for my apartment and will go back for more. tried haggling over ten pesos and was shut down. fair.

the plaza in front of the palacio de belles artes. museum was closed for the holiday but this was great people watching. so many people omfg. walking through the big park next to it at night was really lovely!!

hop: the beer experience. lol this is underneath my airbnb otherwise I would not seek it out. tiny american style brewpub on a plaza with tons of fresh air. not really worth seeking out but if you just want some beer in a lowkey spot this is it. they were showing the super bowl last night but i did not come down for it. i have been the only person here most of my time here

i did so much gd stuff today!!!

i honestly felt like it was on par with any 2nd tier used shop in any major city. dont really get it unless you like, happen to live there and want access to english language lit. as a tourist i wouldnt go out of my way but thats me.

i went to that one! it had a different name on my Google. that's the first one I was at.

under the volcano was definitely a second tier used bookstore imho but bookstore tourism is a huge MO for me so i didn't mind it. probably the best part of the experience was taking a hundred kpin'd out selfies while sipping espresso at milo's waiting for it to open

lol so one of the naughty cats at my airbnb chewed through my usb-c charging cable and my usb-c earbuds. fortunately i have a (slow ass) huge battery pack with a usb/usb-c cable and big bluetooth headphones, but i would like to find replacements if i can for walking around here on my last day. any ideas? i tried sanborns and office depot but neither had usb-c earbuds. they might have a charger cable--i'll look again. mostly really just want some damn earbuds. feel way too conspicuous walking around with goofy $300 headphones on

the coffee and pastries at buna are amaaaaazing.

if you're there on the weekend hit El Real Under for a trip. I went to tacos orizaba must have been 3 times in the week I was there. There are many very good small galleries around town which are great when you burn out on museums. You're makibg me want to go back!
jockesh or jakesh in farsi means pimp and unlike american in farsi pimp is a big insult and commonly applied to scoundrels and bad people like bush jr and i dont know of a word for actual jocks i dont think its a thing in iran but also anyway i wanted to say i believe in nothing
