Diego Oseguera and Vashtie. La Gruta, June 2014
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!
There’s something like 30 million people here. The city is massive!
Cozy 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.
Our amazing guide, Helen, too us for a quick bite. We had no time to do much else…
I’m always excited to see sauces and as soon as we sat down, our table was blessed with this array! I was sold.
Grilled 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!
On the way to the venue! The dress code was tribal chic…I tried to make what I had work.
My braided do. I wanted to do something more Frida, but didn’t have the time or the skills.
I almost screamed out loud when I saw the cave, but I had to be professional so I kept it inside.
The night was a success!!! I had an amazing time with mi Mexican gente! They were sweet, loving, vivacious and accommodating. I can’t wait to go back.
