Frida Kahlo's former home!!! I was so excited!!! It's called "La Casa Azul" (The blue house) and God it is blue!!! As far as I could see, she came for a very wealthy family... not everybody could have a house like this one.... for what I could see, some part of it was added when Frida and Diego lived there (What is now the studio). Oooooooooooh I wish you could see the inside, but pics weren't allowed inside either :( One of my favorite parts was a dress they have hanging from the wall complete with the hair accesories she used, posing for the viewers... it was like seeing her in person... sigh... anyway, these are mi pics:
The front door, blue everywhere....
This is the entrance... you can see the big paper mache judas hanging from the walls
This is me VERY HAPPY to be there.. can you tell?
The exhibition starts here... the leyend says "Frida and Diego lived in this house"
One of the many pieces of pre-colombian art that are in the house (Frida collected them)
The view from the room where her bed was displayed:
More judas, made specially for Frida and Diego by a local artist:
One of the bathrooms (I told you I wasn't allowed to take pics inside, so I took everything I could outside)
My favorite part, the studio!!!!
And that's it!... no many pictures but the trip was soooo worth it!!! If you want to learn more about this museum, click here: Casa Azul
