  1. Hola Paco,

    I enjoy the areas where more Spanish is spoken because it makes me do my best to communicate in Spanish. I’m particularly happy when I’m understood — AND when I understand someone’s reply! Thanks for the info re Celia’s Cenaduria. It’s on my list to try next time!

    We also enjoy going to Los Bambinos Trattoria (on Aguacate), even though it’s kind of touristy. The brothers in Los Bambinos band play all kinds of Mexican and English popular songs, and the food is simple and good. You can walk around outside in the evening and watch local families celebrating kids’ birthday parties with pinatas, and you feel like you’re almost part of the festivities…

    Muchas gracias!

    Janice 🙂


    1. Thank you for sharing, Janice! I’m glad that you enjoy stretching your comfort zone through your Spanish skills. Regretfully, I should comment that Los Bambinos Trattoria has closed, but knowing those Bambinos, I’m sure they will re-emerge in some wonderful way.
