Here’s a snapshot of the Airbnb we’re staying in for our first couple nights in CDMX. Nido de Quetzalcoatl was built by famous organic architect Javier Senosiain. His goal was to preserve the natural beauty of the land and only two trees were removed to build the residences. Stay tuned for a more in depth look at the private park grounds to come!
Cinco años fueron necesarios para dar forma y vida a una hermosa serpiente que arrastra su cuerpo sobre un terreno de alturas y veredas de gran vegetación. Es el Nido de Quetzalcóatl, la máxima obra de la arquitectura moderna y orgánica en México. En este idílico complejo, todo visitante deseará ser devorado por este majestuoso monumento y descansar en su vientre.
Para conocer al Nido de Quetzalcóatl es necesario caminar entre diminutas colinas y puentes que unen arroyos y lagos cristalinos. El terreno en donde fue construido este complejo de 10 departamentos con uno en renta, cuenta con veredas, explanadas y atajos para conocer cada esquina de su enredado cuerpo.
El nido de Quetzalcoatl no es un sitio público, sin embargo existe la posibilidad de pedir permiso a sus dueños para entrar a admirar cada uno de sus monumentos. 🐍😍💚🇲🇽 // Five years were necessary to give form and life to a beautiful snake that drags its body on a terrain of heights and paths of great vegetation.

To know the Quetzalcoatl Nest it is necessary to walk among tiny hills and bridges that join streams and crystalline lakes. The land where this complex of 10 apartments was built with one for rent, has sidewalks, concourses and shortcuts to know each corner of its tangled body.
The Quetzalcoatl nest is not a public place, however there is the possibility of asking permission from its owners to admire each of its monuments. 💚🐍🇲🇽😍 .

Why am I lounging in the mouth of a snake sculpture in Mexico waiting to be painted like one of Leo’s French girls, you ask?
Well, that is certainly a fair question (and one that I’m not sure I have a satisfying answer to), but I think a more interesting question is why the hell am I even in Mexico right now to begin with?
I’ve been making a lot of seemingly crazy decisions this year. Decisions not unlike the one I made to fly all the way back from Asia so that I could spend two weeks in Mexico City right before Christmas mostly just because.
The thing is, I keep making them because they all kinda just keep, I dunno, working out.
One recent decision I made that even had me a little apprehensive was the one to fly across the world to Thailand last month to go on a group trip lead by @drewbinsky in hopes of... well, I wasn’t exactly sure what I was hoping to get out of it, but my crazy told me it was the move to make, so, I made it.
❓Would it be a giant waste of time and money or would it potentially shape the direction of my life?
❓What other kind of insane people signed up for this thing?
❓Why does my right leg look so weird in this picture?
