Visiting Frida's House

We had some free time during the team meetings and finally had a chance to visit Fida Kahlo's "Blue House" here in Mexico City. As you may know, Frida Kahlo is Mexico's most famous (and eccentric) female artist (I won't go into detail about her life but you can google her if you like). We have quite a few children's books about Frida (and her equally famous artist husband, Diego Rivera) and Hizee really loves her art and the story of her life. She had been waiting to visit her actual home, which has been turned into a museum. La Casa Azul ("The Blue House" as Frida's house is called) did not disappoint!

Oh, how fun! We have Frida's book too and Kezia keeps asking about this creative gal. So glad that you had a chance to enjoy it first hand!
