Saturday Morning Mexico City Breakfast

It’s a whirlwind here in Mexico City!

Speed editing, speed posting, just some highlights.

Breakfast today:

Traditional sweet breads

Eggs (not mine)

More eggs & refried beans (not mine)

Watermelon (mine!)

Cafe Mexicano (super strong coffee, almost espresso-like, about 2 ounces + about 4 ounces of sweet, warm milk)


I still love the vanilla iced coffees I make at home but this coffee did rock.  I had almost two.  Need to keep awake!  We are at a break-neck pace!

Being bloggers and photographers

Then we went to the market.  It was mind-blowing.  The sheer size, the pandemonium, the crowds.  And there was tons and tons of raw meat.  I have a renewed, deep, deep conviction in a plant-based diet after being there.

More market shots later, but now we are off to photograph and shoot all afternoon and late into the evening.  At least until 10 or 11pm!

Glad you enjoyed my Friday Night Mexico City pictures.  And yes, romance is a big theme here.

What’s going on for you this weekend?

    Love it! Such stunning pictures, especially the first one with the bread. You caught a beautiful, action packed moment. Well done!

    I don’t drink coffee because it makes me too jittery (and I only like it with lots of sugar so even decaf isn’t an option) but I looooove the way it looks, and the way it smells. The photo of that cup of coffee looks so beautiful!

    Those sweet breads look delicious, and I’m not a bread person…making me want to go to the bakery :)

    Oh, I am almost in tears with jealousy!! No really, I am thrilled you are having an awesome time and are documenting this experience for poor (feeling so left out) blogger/photographers like me! It looks like SO MUCH FUN. One of these days, I’m going to do this! I will! Keep posting! Tell Penny that this other Penni over here in Houston is still looking for stories!

    That first shot of the pastries is pretty fantastico mamasita! ;)

    I love fast-paced adventures. I’m a bit of an adrenaline junkie… like twice a year, haha.

    Keep on enjoying being south of the border!!

    do you like cilantro? very heavily used there and i know some people think it tastes like soap! you know…after seeing meat hanging in market in india i nearly converted (i ate vegetarian the entire month i was there, only eggs no dairy…nearly a vegan) but it didn’t work for me. i felt sluggish, i guess my body needs animal protein?

    Beautiful pictures — mmm those sweet breads look amazing! And the sheer number of bananas is crazy — love it! :)

    Yummm! I love Mexican breakfast. This weekend I am throwing a yoga/vegan potluck party at my house. Can’t wait to get together with all my girls and have fun.

    I can’t believe you’re blogging on this trip crazy lady! It looks INCREDIBLE!

  22. Amy — July 9, 2011 at 5:56 pm (#

    Looks like fun! Yuck- hanging meat. Makes it easy to be plant based in my opinion. Very busy weekend for us. Attended a vegan kids get together at a park today. Tomorrow going to a veg meet up at a local restaurant. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

    Yum, yum! What a great opportunity Averie!

    Okay, I saw your moving post and the Mexico City header and was like, what?!? I stop posting and reading for a few months and Averie is moving to Mexico? Okay, okay, I figured it out, hee, hee. Glad to know you’re still in town and just down the street from where you were : ) I cannot go so long away from this time vampire, I get so out of touch!

    Enjoy your time at your photography weekend!!

    What a fun trip. Enjoy! Great shots.

    That watermelon looks out of this world good! And it has seeds! Crazy! I can’t believe those bananas either! So many! I can imagine how seeing so much raw meat could really turn you off, I feel the same way at farmers markets where I live. And you were right about the comment I made about the bananas looking like gross sweet potatoes! You were right! Sorry about that! Hope you are having an amazing time, and keeping awake! Can’t wait to read more about your adventure soon!

    How fabulous! I have vague memories of Mexico City from when I was about 5, and all I really remember was the Mexican doll I bought :)

  27. Christine (The Raw Project) — July 10, 2011 at 7:37 am (#

    Fabulous pics, the sweet breads and watermelon look perfect! What an adventure and I can’t wait to see more!

    I’m so behind on your trip. That just means I’ve been having a busy (but fun) weekend. Hope you’re having a blast!
