St. Paddy’s day is always a bit emotional for me because it’s the day, 10 years ago, when I lost my freedom. Today, being with my family, surrounded by nature, I’m reminded of how lucky I am, to be home and to be free. 🍀
FriYAY! ❄️ ❄️ ❄️
On this #internationalwomensday I’m inspired by how far we’ve come, yet reminded of how far we still have to go to truly achieve gender equality. But my little girl and girls like her around the world give me hope in a brighter future. When women rise, society benefits! ✨✨✨ #girlpower
Last post from 🇲🇽 and it’s all about the food! Thanks @dottie_west for being my partner on this amazing culinary and travel adventure. Love you so much! #cousins #casaoaxaca #origenoaxaca #losdanzantesoaxaca #contramar #azulcondesa #churreriaelmoro #laguerrerense
Floating down the canals of #xochimilco , where vendors on small boats sell beer and snacks, and you can hire a mariachi band to hop on board and play some tunes. Not a bad way to spend the afternoon. Especially with my pal @dottie_west . #cousinadventures
Lucha Libre! Love all the colorful masks and spectacle of Mexican wrestling. Fun fact: My cuz @dottie_west and I used to pretend we were WWF wrestlers when we were kids. We’d rumble and body slam each other imitating #hulkhogan #junkyarddog #thebushwackers and others. Oh, and @lisalingstagram was the referee. 😆 Who was your fave #WWF wrestler from back in the day? 🤼‍♂️ #luchalibre
Getting our cardio workout on while learning about the history of Teotihuacán. This was the most powerful city in the region in 400 AD. The pictures don’t really capture the scope and magnitude. My legs are still hurting from the climb! #avenueofthedead #pyramidofthesun #pyramidofthemoon #templeofthefeatheredserpent #cousinadventures
Definitely a highlight of the trip. Frida Kahlo suffered so much during her life, yet always projected such confidence, beauty and love of life. One of my favorite artists. Viva la vida! 🍉 #frida
Tostadas Tostadas! Octopus and shrimp tostadas and fresh pineapple juice. A perfect lunch with @dottie_west . #cdmx #cousinadventures
Admiring the work of Diego Rivera at the Palacio de Bella Artes and the Diego Rivera Mural Museum. #diegorivera #cdmx
Last day. This place is truly magical. From people of all ages dancing in the streets at night, to stunning architecture, to a gastronomic paradise, to an incredibly rich culture and history. You intoxicate me #oaxaca and I can’t wait to return. Now on to Mexico City!!! @dottie_west #oaxaca
Street food heaven with our awesome guide Miguel. 🌮 ❤️ 🌮 ❤️ @dottie_west @enjoyoaxaca #burp #tacos #marquesitas #tejate #jicama
Such a fascinating window into Zapotec history at the #Mitla archaeological site - considered a gateway between the world of the living and world of the dead. And we visited El Tule-the stoutest 🌳 in the world! #unesco #oaxaca #mitla #cousinadventures @dottie_west @enjoyoaxaca
Such a spectacular day hiking to these petrified waterfalls and soaking in the cool mineral springs with my cuz @dottie_west . A must see for anyone visiting #Oaxaca ! #hierveelagua #cousinsadventure
