About me

I'm a half Japanese half Mexican married for 17 years with a 11 years son. Born and live my hole life in Mexico City. My traveler gen got started since I was a child, because my father took us camping in a VW Van through all the country, so I been deep into adventure and experience first hand the real Mexico. Mexico City is a great city because you can find points of interest on al range of expectations, so it doesn't matter which is your traveling style or budget, there will be a plan for you. We compare to NY in the song a City That Never Sleep, because life in the city never stop, you will see people all day almost everywhere. Food is always ready from great just made sweet bread & coffee to late night tacos. We have Parks, Museums, Theatre, Clubs, Markets, Malls, Concerts, Bull Fights, Soccer Games and more.

I'm mexican, I was born and raised in Mexico City, which I know very well. I love my city, I find it very attractive to have the opportunity to live in a big urban center such as Mexico City. I'm open to diverse and different cultures and always enjoy meeting new people. I believe learning about other people is a way for me to learn and grow.

Did you know tomatoes come from Mexico? I'm your go-to for history, little-known facts, and obscure trivia on any subject. I'm bursting at the seams to share my love for my city and my country with everybody. My English is perfect--I'm a Shakespearean scholar on the side. (Sorry if I'm unavailable--I'm probably travelling.)
