Mexico, what more could you ask for? Bright vibrant colours, great food, amazing fields of cacti, and friendly people. My favourites were Puebla (lots of markets) and Chichen Itza (amazing ruins).

Amongst other places, we stayed at a lovely Hacienda with a back gate to enter Chichen Itza first thing in the morning before the tourists. Truly magical, with stunning food too!

The first three photos were taken at the gorgeous blue-walled villa in Mexico City, home of the icon Frida Kahlo. The other icon of Mexico is the Virgin of Guadalupe seen everywhere from road-side shrines to carrier bags.
