Pecha Kucha DF

Qué es eso de Pecha Kucha? Será una asociación para ayudar a indígenas? Acaso un albúr referente al busto? O tal vez tiene que ver con los discapacitados?

Hace media hora que me puse a revisar mi correo, recibí un mail de mi amiga Tatiana Musi, en el cual invitaba a todos a acudir al Pecha Kucha mañana martes en el Covadonga, restaurante/bar en la colonia Roma favorito de los hipsters mexas.

Pecha Kucha (cuchicheo en japonés) es un evento que se lleva a cabo el último martes de cada mes en el cual artistas y amateurs tienen la oportunidad de presentar 20 imágenes por 20 segundos cada una.

Your new mirror

How many times do you change your clothes before you walk out the door? Are you about to leave the house when you feel that your outfit is not right for the day/ocassion or your mood? Do you feel your best friend is lying when you ask her if your red skirt looks right with your yellow shoes and she says with a tone of desperation "it looks awsome, now let's go."

When the mirror and your friends don't fit the bill... all you need to do is take a picture of your outfit, downloaded on your computer and log in the DOES THIS LOOK STUPID website.

"a place where we can help each other put together the best looks for any occasion. get advice on outfits you're thinking about, rate others' outfits, and save the ones you like! the site's fresh out of the oven -- give it a try and let us know what you think. yours truly, the dtls squad!"

Greetings from Puebla

Isaac Muñoz, Brett Schultz, Laurence Lascary,Adam Kurland, and Ariston Anderson at the boutique hotel La Purificadora, built by Legorreta under strict supervision of hotelier extraordinaire Carlos Couturier (Habita, Condesa DF, Azúcar).

Lady selling "gallinitas" in the Zócalo (main plaza)

On sunday, we all decided to go to Puebla to visit the pyramids in Cholula and the beautiful colonial buildings. After the long car rental process, we were on the road. When we got there, our friend Isaac Muñoz showed us around and even took us to a very rustic and cheap hotel next to the pyramids. We walked around the Zócalo, visted the Museo Amparo,saw the traditional dances and had a couple of cocktails on the "Portales" of the Royalty hotel. There were a lot of street vendors, but the one that called our attention the most was an 8 year old girl that was selling a couple black mutt puppies for 2 bucks each. Afterwards, we bought some beers and started a card playing tournament at our hotel room (Ariston is a good card player!). I was asleep cause I drove and it was a tad stressful. In the morning we had breakfast at the hotel and proceeded to check out the pyramids and the Iglesia de la Virgen de los Remedios (good morning exercise after eating greasy eggs and refried beans). Then we met with Isaac, who took us to an art show he curated, some antique stores, The Purificadora Hotel and to have some Mole Poblano at the traditional Fonda de Santa Clara.

Hidden Ducks!

I found them. A couple of days ago, someone left the closet door open in the place i work at. Guess what I found? The very symbolic duck painting from DUCK SEASON.
