Tall T's Mexican adventure

I'm a firm believer that one of the great joys in life is experiencing different cultures and pushing oneself out of one's comfort zone.  In no way is that more possible than through travel.

I recently went to Mexico City to celebrate my birthday as I was looking for a unique cultural experience, and the cosmopolitan vibrant city did not disappoint.  I'd previously visited Mexico's beach areas–Baja, Riviera Maya, Cabo–and this go round wanted something electrifying and enlightening.

I enjoyed many culinary delights along with just a bit of Mezcal...
