I write about random findings and travel.

  • Found Gong Cha in Coyoacán, we hoped to try the unique mole boba tea, perhaps a specialty seen in Oaxaca. Unfortunately, it wasn’t available. We settled for the regular boba tea, which tasted quite normal. There’re a bunch of Gong…

  • One peculiar figure stands out in the pharmacy world – Dr. Simi. This character is a mascot for the popular pharmacy chain Farmacias Similares. Often, you’ll find someone dressed as Dr. Simi dancing and greeting customers outside the pharmacies.

  • Our Teotihuacan adventure continues with the equally fascinating Pyramid of the Moon. Like its counterpart (Pyramid of the Sun), the Pyramid of the Moon was built around the same time, approximately 200 CE. Smaller yet strikingly prominent, it marks the…
