Mexico City. Second Installment. Frida and Diego's

Museo Frida Kahlo
We couldn't visit Mexico City without a visit to Frida Kaho's Blue House. She grew up in this house, and then later, lived their with Diego Rivera. It's in a beautiful old neighborhood.

(The second installment on our trip to Mexico City. Links are at the bottom of this post.)
The Amigos. We are friends and all traveled to Mexico City together
a photograph of Frida, hangs in her home.

Oh how that blue sets off the greens in the inner courtyard!

Diego's bedroom. 
 Also, Leon Troksy's room, when he was in exile. (Not at the same time!) Diego died here, a few years after Frida's death.

And her self portrait mirror and her wheel chair....

Frida's day bedroom. Notice the mirror on the bed canopy.
And her death mask on the bed.

Frida wore this body cast.
Frida's shoe.She had polio as a child and needed leg support
