Tour No “3” Monterrey …

So here i go with the story …    I went to Monterrey a couple weeks ago and as many of you know Monterrey is the richest city in Mexico and also the most important Industrial city in the whole country, being the main via to the world bussines trades between Mexico and the rest of the world so its a modern, new and fresh city.  And i must say .. the Car Transit is super well distributed … i had to drive long distances everyday  or jump on the Skytrain ( Metro ) in order to get to downtown cause my Uncle’s house is pretty  far away from Monterrey’s downtown .. it is actually on your way to Nuevo Laredo, it is also  SUPER FUCKING HOT !

I got to meet for the first time in my life my little niece and my nephew that are seriously a fucking walking ball of energy , I LOVE THEM and miss them already ,  Her name is Ivana and his name is Julio. They are freaking cute !! And im really happy cause i wiil get to see them soon !!!!

I went to see my friend Kharla Barragan who was showing her s/s 2010 line @ Monterrey’s Fashion week , her brand Molkajete uses a lot of Mexican motives and materials which makes of every single design a unique piece with a lot of character .. this time she delighted us with a very patriotic and funky collection introducing for the first time in her life a few pieces for men . The best of all  is that this super talented girl just gets better and better every time i see her new stuff !  –  I LOVE MOLKAJETE  –

She hooked me up with an awesome purple  beanie with a hand knitted mo-hawk. !!!! THANKS A LOT BABE !!!!

I LOVE IT AND I CANT WAIT TILL WINTER SO I CAN WEAR IT AND REPRESENT !!!!

I took a little video of the last final walk at her show…  and a long version that you can see if you CLICK HERE !!!! – or not cause maybe is too long – oops !!!

The quality is really crappy due to the fact i was using my E71 and not my camera … but you’ll get the idea –  check out her web page cause soon you will be able to watch a professional version .. jajaja

The day after the show i went to downtown cause i had a couple biz things to do .. and i walked all along the Macro plaza the Main big “Zocalo” in Monterrey , its amazing cause as i said before this city its really modern so it combines old school  and modern architecture in every single corner. The Barrio Antiguo its a beautiful Neighbor where most of the night life happens .. (its a shame i didn’t make it out at night at all  ) – too busy – but its a really cozy area with small streets and shit loads of night clubs  & Restaurants i took a picture of a place called the GROOVY that had the frontage all in pink ( my favorite color ) and with the Beatles faces and a lot of really psychedelic drawings on !!! I REALLY WANTED TO GO THERE .. but no luck ” .. – next time –

Monterrey 09-09

The Metro rides were awesome cause it is more like a sky-train … so the view is unbelievable and it is also super clean ! loved it ! Besides the Line that took me straight into downtown was like 1.5 Km away form my  uncles Neighbor … so i walked it a few times on my way back  home … was fun and really convenient .. Sometimes you have NOT TO DRIVE .. so you can enjoy and still feel how walking could be so much better !
