San Angel

Hello there! Well, the day before yesterday my sister, my mother, and I went to a place here in Mexico City that is called San Angel. It is a big market where lots of artisans sell their products. There's a huge variety of things that you can find. From the symbols and figures of Nayarit, to knitted plush. There are also many Mexican food restaurants. This time we decided to eat some quesadillas at a stand that was near the street. (they were delicious) Here are some pictures of the things we saw at the market.                            This man was called Manuel, he made all the figures and also his clothes! He had a great sense of humor, he even laughed with my mom's jokes. This guitar was amazing, the man who made it said it has more than 100 recycled parts.  As I told you, there were also this kind of things around the market, It was a small piece of cuteness between all the mexican clothes and talavera plates. (That tree was just too cute, you can imagine who bought it...)Pure embroidery. We wanted to buy it, but, just try to guess the prize. 
(That's my sister and my mom:)
Well, there were several things that I loved, my mom was really happy, also my sister. Mom bought a molcajete for the kitchen, it is a kind of plate made of stone in which you can make different sauces. It was really heavy, though. We had to take turns in order to take it to the car. We had a great day, the climate was great, the market was not so full of people, and after some hours we arrived home and played with Remi for a little while. I really hope you liked the pictures, it would be awesome if you could come and visit the market someday!

Oh, I almost forget to tell you, I'm in process of changing some things in my room, I'll post about it later. Also, I found a gorgeous book I would like to share with you, I guess that's it for now, lots of love, Monica.
