At least I can look forward to returning to Mexico in two months when I begin my experiment in being a "semi-ex-pat". I will be renting the apartment that I saw earlier on this trip. It will be exciting having a new "home-away-from-home" and getting acquainted with a new neighborhood. However, I do have to say that I will miss the neighborhood of Condesa where I have been staying for the last several years. I have felt very comfortable here, and there are so many great restaurants within walking distance. Of course there will be plenty of restaurants near my new place, but I have a feeling that more of them will be rather run-of-the-mill chain restaurants. In any event, since the new apartment has a larger, better equipped kitchen, I will be doing less eating out. Dining at a restaurant every night has not been good for the waistline.
¡Hasta pronto, México!
