When I travel, I find myself eager to know the customs and culture of a new place. I make a point to be flexible and open to having authentic experiences. This in turn has allowed me to learn, share and experience things that can't be found in a guidebook.
I spent most of my time in Mexico city wandering around, dazzled by the architecture and distracted by the smell of Al pastor meat rotisseries. Six days wasn't enough to fully absorb all the rich flavors of the city.
I quickly noticed that there were many smitten Mexican couples. Their adoration and love for each other was evident in every interaction. I began to become curious about these love stories.
