A big final day for me in Mexico: I managed to tick off everything on my itinerary, including a visit to Trotsky’s house, Frida Kahlo’s house (very moving), a wander around the lovely area of Coyoacán, a lot of walking, and a visit to two buildings containing murals by Diego Rivera and Jose Orozco. I’ll post a few pictures of these tomorrow a.m. before I fly back to Chicago. In the meantime, here are two photos for this evening (click to enlarge):
Self-portrait in Frida Kahlo’s studio (excuse the solipsism; there will be a lot more on Kahlo later). To the right are her paints and brushes, to the left one of the plaster corsets she wore because of her back troubles, and which she decorated after it was removed.
