The Best Seat in the House

Now that I have a dog I'm taking even more pleasure in Parque México, that little island of green in Colonia Condesa. Late afternoon is a great time to go--the sun is lower, so things have cooled down, and the light is glorious.
A fairly recent addition to the neighborhood is a branch of Churros y Chocolate El Moro, whose original location in the Centro Histórico has been around for almost a century.
Facing the park at the corner of Michoacán, El Moro offers rocking chairs where you can sit and dunk those sugary crunch churros into a thick steaming mug of hot chocolate. Does it get any better than this in Mexico City?

Gay Weddings Expo in Mexico City

Look how far we've come. Dozens of these posters are now splashed all over Mexico City. The choice of models is interesting--they're recognizably Mexican, something often eschewed in advertising here. This poster covers a lot of cultural territory. I'll be out of town that weekend, but if anyone attends please send me photos.
