Frida's gaze, Casa Azul
At first I wasn't all that interested in seeing the @fridakahlomuseo
in Mexico City --- Frida Mania kind of kills it for me. BUT, I wanted to see Coyocan and well, while I was there... And, I'm so glad I went. It was a lovely home, I'm all about old timey arts and crafts design. The interior courtyard of the Casa Azul was much bigger than I imagined.. sure many of the other visitors were pushy and rude in the tight confines of the home and we couldn't really pause much, but I loved the tour and museo, seeing art studio, lovely kitchen, the day and night bedrooms.... The blue exterior is really striking, the gardens between very nice, the art collection not the top stuff, but some interesting pieces, some cool photos I hadn't seen, and neat to see some of her clothes in the extra exhibit. I really wanted to get to the other Diego and Frida home with the connecting skyway, but alas, we did not have time!
