Visiting Frida Kahlo’s Casa Azul

Frida Kahlo has always been an idol to me. A feminist icon without a doubt, the more I learnt about her the more I aspired to be half the woman she was. A brave fighter, she was able to channel her pain through art, showing the world without any shame who she was and where she was from.

After admiring this artist, this woman for so many years, basically since childhood, I could not go to Mexico City and not visit the place where she lived.

If you’re planning on visiting Casa Azul I highly recommend you to do the same I did – buy your tickets in advance online. The queues were already huge before 10am (when it opens). If you have you ticket already, you will be directed to a much shorter line. Each ticket as an entry time, so you’ll also make sure you enter when you’re planning and won’t waste hours waiting to buy a ticket.

Pies para que los quiero si tengo alas para volar

I try to think about Frida every time life seems pointless, as well as trying to live it. She had such a spirit, such an optimism. From someone who went through so much, she always raised graciously from the darkness and brought light to everyone around her.
