Library
“Vasconcelos Library is one of the Mexico City's biggest and most accessible public libraries. Loaded with books, there's also art and exhibition room in one of the city's most alluring public spaces. Is the masterpiece of contemporary engineer Alberto Kanach, a sort of modern conclave built in the middle of a surrealist garden in Buenavista, Mexico City. Inside, one can wander through the hundreds of square-shaped shelves that embellish its crystal halls. Even though their archive only contains 575 thousand books (collected through its nine years of existence), its subject classification is large. It also has a children’s library, a multimedia room, computers and reading stations”

Plaza
“The center of the neighborhood is the Alameda Park with its Morisco Kiosk, located at the intersection of Dr. Atl and Salvador Miron Streets, near Metro Buenavista.[9] The kiosk was designed and built in the late 19th century by José Ramón Ibarrola to be the Mexico Pavilion at the World’s Fair of 1884 in New Orleans and of the Saint Louis Exposition of 1902. The structure is completely made of cast iron, which was in fashion at that time. It is thought that the iron came from the Carnegie Steel Company of Pittsburgh. It consists of panels that can be disassembled and a glass cupola. After these events, the structure was brought back to Mexico at the beginning of the 20th century and installed on the south side of the Alameda Central. While it was here, it became the site of the national lottery drawing. For the Centennial of the Mexican War of Independence, the kiosk was moved to make way for the Benito Juárez Monument. The residents of the barrio petitioned to have the kiosk moved to this neighborhood. ”

“Accomplished chef Antonietta di Pasquale whisks our taste buds away to Sicily, whilst our physical bodies remain, caught between Cuauhtémoc and another one of the oldest hearts of Mexico City- Santa Maria La Ribera (it’s still a relatively well-kept secret, and so worth a visit). Fluffy pizzas, freshly made pasta, Sicilian snacks (crispy fried calamari drizzled with olive oil and lemon and for the sweet tooth, homemade cannolis) and the cutest little outdoor space to savour it all. Personally, my favourite time to head to this little haven is on a lazy weekday (nudge nudge digital nomads and freelancers), or Saturday afternoon, when the sun is bright and only wine and fresh tomato sauce all over your face will do”

Mexican Restaurant
“Este restaurante es una verdadera delicia a un precio bastante económico y de un menú 100% oaxaqueño. Normalmente hay gente en espera, pero tan sólo toma 20 minutos encontrar una mesa cuando hay demasiada gente. Recomiendo probar los platillos con mole y una jarra de tejate para beber.”

“The quesadilla, that delicious dish that chilangos (people from CDMX) knew how to improve by adding other ingredients besides the one that baptizes it (cheese). But how to make it even more incredible? In the nineties, Las Jirafas came up with the answer: giant quesadillas. With 45 centimeters you earn your adjective to pulse (if you do not have a tape measure at hand, stretch your arm and from the elbow onwards imagine your quesadilla). To accompany, the beers come in accordance with the dishes: yards.”

“Si tu itinerario no incluye visitar el bello estado de Oaxaca, no te preocupes porque en este restaurante te vas a sentir como si estuvieras comiendo en el mismísimo Mercado de Santo Domingo en el centro de Oaxaca. Si vas pide una Tlayuda receta de la casa. No vas a poder comer más en el día por el tamaño y lo rico. No te pierdas el pan de yema y el chocolate. Las enmoladas y hasta el arroz son fantásticos también. ”
