Kahlo would in­spire any­one to take up paint­ing. While Polanca was orig­i­nally on my list of places to spend evenings, I took Noreen’s sug­ges­tions and headed to La Con­desa and La Roma and was so glad I did. I am rec­om­mend­ing Mex­ico City to ev­ery­one. It’s so­phis­ti­cated, charm­ing and sur­pris­ingly af­ford­able. I read Olivia Stren’s es­say “What a Time to Be Alive” (Au­gust 2017) on one of the rare hot and hu­mid days we had this sum­mer. Did we even have a sum­mer? No one ob­sesses more about the weather than Cana­di­ans, but few of us can so elo­quently cap­ture why we pine for a sea­son that lasts as long as a snowflake land­ing on our tongue.
