zona rosa

Having a chance to hang in the Zona Rosa was one of the best things about getting booted from our original hotel in Mexico City. On the first night we landed in a corner of the "Pink Zone" -- an area that the guide book described as "formerly Bohemian, now gaytown" -- which made me wonder what sort of subtlety distinguishes "bohemian" from "gay".

Alive with galleries, gay bars, bookstores, openly affectionate same sex couples, and a shop called "Condomania", it reminded me of my old Capitol Hill neighborhood in Seattle. Lovely.

And way more gay than Saugatuck.

My absolute fave part of Mexico City... we splurged and stayed at the Four Seasons right in the heart of la Zona Rosa. I wish I'd somehow known you'd end up there... there are fantastic restaurants there.
