I final­ly made it to the famous Nation­al Muse­um of Anthro­pol­o­gy in Mex­i­co City. It is an over­whelm­ing­ly impres­sive col­lec­tion, so of course I’m going to have to make light of it. But real­ly, it was great and a must see like every­one says. I prob­a­bly should have paid for the audio guide, but I like wan­der­ing too.

Les­son 1: don’t lose your head, and that the Alien myth is total­ly true

Acces­sories are impor­tant no mat­ter the era — scarves are use­ful and beau­ti­ful

See? More acces­sories

Oh hel­lo there. How did you get into the series? Nice to meet you.

That’s a pulque face, and why I stick to tequi­la these days.

That’s a seri­ous com­mit­ment to a tat­too.

No veg­e­tar­i­ans back inthe day, but maybe ele­phant was super tasty.

I like that they got the detail right with the smoky wall behind the stove.

A time­less les­son from our moth­ers. If you keep mak­ing that face, it might stay that way.

Oh hel­lo again, wel­come back. Yes, Mex­i­co City is great. We total­ly agree on that.

Anoth­er les­son on not los­ing your head. You nev­er know where it might end up.

This is just awe­some. I wish I had some­thing wit­ti­er to say.

I don’t under­stand a lot about reli­gion, except some­times you need to sac­ri­fice a kitchen and have a cit­rus soda.

Vanil­la bean craft time

Oh wow. I don’t know if we can con­tin­ue in this way with­out a more prop­er intro­duc­tion. I should prob­a­bly just go.

Beau­ti­ful feath­ers

more beau­ti­ful feath­ers

That’s some seri­ous inte­ri­or design.

This is tech­ni­cal­ly a beach bun­ny since it is from a coastal state.

Don’t throw out those old sketch books.

This goes ways beyond doo­dling in the mar­gins.
