A day with the squirrels [Coyoacan Park, Mexico City]

March 7, 2016

One day last week we went out to Coyoacan park so that Guy could go for a run (he’s training for a long distance event and hates running on the streets here).  I walked around taking photos of the squirrels, and eating most of the bag of peanuts I had bought for them ha. I love this park so much, it feels like you’re in a forest, where there just happens to be a Mexican marathon being run (the amount of people I saw jogging in jeans!).  But despite all the people it feels so peaceful and tranquil.  I also love how each part of the park looks so different. I ended up walking around the track twice (4km!!) just because I was enjoying it so much.

Apparently squirrels are considered pests in Mexico by many people which I just can’t believe because they’re so cute!!!!

I love how they take the nuts so gently from your hands.  Sometimes they rested one little paw on my hand as they picked one out. So cute!

After Guy had finished running (and I’d eaten all the peanuts) we walked into the town of Coyoacan where we ate tacos for lunch and picked up some treats at the bakery for the walk back to the metro. We love this city!
