Special thanks to Erika Mercado of Mex In The City and Diego Oseguera of  Diageo for booking me in their hometown of Mexico City! Can I just tell you, I DJ’ed in a legit cave (La Gruta) an hour outside of Mexico City. It was insane and super cool. Like, out of a movie. Not bad for my first time in Mexico and Mexico City. But, I need to go back. I didn’t have time to see the ruins, pyramids or even Frida Kahlo’s house!

vashtie_mexcity_6271401There’s something like 30 million people here. The city is massive!

vashtie_mexcity_6271402Cozy Boys. Stephen aka Huggy Bear came with me. I’m always afraid to travel alone, but Angelo told me the Mexicans would want nothing from a Negra like me. Hahahahaha.

vashtie_mexcity_6271403Our amazing guide, Helen, too us for a quick bite. We had no time to do much else…

vashtie_mexcity_6271404I’m always excited to see sauces and as soon as we sat down, our table was blessed with this array! I was sold.

vashtie_mexcity_6271405Grilled Cactus. This looks weird and not appetizing, but it totally was. You all know I’m a vegan/raw/sometimes fish eater, so I opted for a vegan meal this time, sans the tortilla (gluten). I know, no fun…but it was still delicious. Cactus is the bomb!

vashtie_mexcity_6271407My braided do. I wanted to do something more Frida, but didn’t have the time or the skills.

vashtie_mexcity_6271408I almost screamed out loud when I saw the cave, but I had to be professional so I kept it inside.
