July 22 – 31, 2018
Schedcation 8.0 started by flying into Mexico City, taking a bus to San Miguel de Allende, and then flying out of Leon/Guanajuato (BJX).
For museums, we missed out on booking our tickets in time for visiting Casa Luis Barragan, found Soumaya more beautiful on the outside than in, fell in love with Frida all over again at the Blue House, became art at Jumex, and enjoyed the library as art more than usual.
Good things we ate include: tuna tostadas and mezcal at La Capital, tostadas with garlic at La Costilla, tacos at Tacos Tony, al pastor gringa at El Vilsito, chicken sandwich at Cicatriz, snack at Falafelito, breakfast at Ojo de Agua, and churros at Churrería El Moro.
After the chartered bus to San Miguel de Allende, we had our own villa in a small, sometimes noisy neighborhood. Within walking distance was Restaurante El Coyote Flaco, where you could walk through the cava el vampiro to see mammoth remains, no joke.
Taking Ubers into and out of town were a little more difficult, but we loved the city. My favorite place we ate was El Pato Barbacoa y Mixiotes, owned by a husband and wife, they’ll treat you like family within minutes of meeting you.
This trip we celebrated 10 years as a completely bootstrapped company. I’m proud of what we worked on and we really deserved all the micheladas we had (and more).
