Five years ago, I was a Gang Prosecutor in the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office. One winter night, I decided to try an experiment: Could I learn Spanish from watching a telenovela? Five years later, I left my job and Chicago, to move to Mexico City, to write the telenovela of my dreams. I don’t understand Spanish or The Metric System. Just like in a great telenovela,, anything can happen... Stay tuned!
Come for the Condiments, stay for the food you cover in those condiments. Mexico City has great food, but no one ever tells you about the condiments... And what might be the biggest mystery of my new life here in Mexico City...
I thought I was being followed here in Mexico City by protesters, and I thought they might be protesting me! Then I learned all about the rallying cry “Se Compran Colchones...” and that all my pursuers want is to buy my old washing machine! Hear all about it here!!
I’m a lifelong Chicagoan who recently moved to Mexico City, where I make plenty of mistakes every day! When a police sergeant pointed out my most recent mistake, I couldn’t get out of there fast enough! But then I realized, I’m not the only person making Mistakes in Mexico! And I felt much better about myself!
Mistakes and hijinx abound at “The Mall Of Iron” when I am directed into a co-ed bathroom. And I’d also like to know the Kleenex budget for the telenovela “Mi Pecado.” And why the family in the movie “Roma” had a dog.
Tonight I want to tell you about my favorite street in Mexico City (Amsterdam, and not for the reason you think!) And why even though it goes in a complete circle I still get lost because I’m never sure where to get off!
