  1. I am VERY interested in a future trip like this one including a few days visiting Frida Kahlo sites. Do you have future dates?

  2. I AM SAD as I would jump on this in a minute but going to San Miguel de Allende Feb. 27. I will keep looking at your next offer.

    Have fun, Susanne

    • Well, Susanne. It could be perfect timing. Come along to arrive in Mexico City on Feb. 20, then on Feb. 24 take a first class bus from Mexico Norte to SMA. It’s easy. I’ve done it. You would just arrive there a few days earlier than planned!

  3. Norma – this sounds wonderful! It’s on my bucket list!
