Girls Getaway to Mexico City - Zocalo, Templo Mayor and Vintage HOE

The next day, we toured Mexico City’s Centro Historico and did a night tour through the fabulous Plaza de la Constitucion (or Zocalo) and Templo Mayor (www.templomayor.inah.gob.mx), which was one of the main temples of the Aztecs in their capital city of Tenochtitlan, which is now Mexico City. The plaza is a great place to visit during the day and even more incredible at night as it lights up and serves as a gathering place for people to hang out, catch up and (in some cases) pay homage to the Aztec city located below.

We had a mission to do some vintage clothes shopping and found our first store, Vintage HOE (Heaven On Earth), which is located in the La Roma neighborhood. Cessie made a few purchases and we were on our way to the next stop when it started raining. Halt the shopping! Let’s head to a bar. We found the rest of our group at Hotel Brick (www.HotelBrick.com) in the bar, of course. We had a round (or two) of Lychee Martinis and decided it was time for dinner.
