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

I have had this happen (not there specifically) until I basically just stared at the waiter and stuck my hand in the air

Have you done any of the museums in Chapultepec? It’s a great place to just walk around and explore, but the anthropology and Tamayo museums are both worth a visit. The anthro museum can get really busy depending on the day.
