Autographs ― Tim Wu

At this year's Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, one panel I attended was "Silicon Valley Disrupters." There were four authors plus a moderator. All were interesting, but I only bought this book by Tim Wu and got it signed.

Mexico City — Spring 2017

Link to more photos

I last visited Mexico City in 1985. Although he has passed through Mexico City many times, the only local sight Victor had seen was Teotihuacan.

We signed up for an Out Adventures tour, our first with a gay group. It was great. Victor loved it. The weather was fine — moderate temperatures day and night and not a drop of rain.

The tour included quite a few places I had not seen, including Frida Kahlo's home, lunch on a boat in the Xochimilco canals, Museo Dolores Olmedo, and Museo Soumaya.

In addition to the expected sights (see the photos linked above!), we went to a temazcal — a sweat lodge, visited Coyoacan, had one special dinner at a great restaurant, Dolce Patria, and our final group dinner at the home of a gay couple who teach cooking. Victor and I also visited the zoo on one free morning.
