Last weekend I walked to Polanco and strolled around. This month they’re celebrating Independence Day in Mexico. What I love about Mexico and Mexicans is that they take celebrations seriously. There are flags and decorations everywhere here now. They had a huge parade with cars that people had tuned up or modified. Most of the cars were carrying flags or sombreros. They were revving their engines and people were lining the streets to watch. I was too impressed and forgot to snap more pics πŸ™

Even after having lived here for a year I still discover new places. Walked by this bird sanctuary and went inside. One of my biggest dreams would be to be able to talk to animals. I have tried, believe me. Especially when tripping in nature thinking I have more brain capacity and that I should be able to attract animals. So far no luck. I tried with the parrot on the bench, but he didn’t give a shit about me hahahaaa…

I was also prepping for my birthday coming up next week…

Finally got a table at Masala & Maiz. It’s a Mexican/Indian fusion restaurant and super popular. Someone told me that they been asked to be featured in a book about the 50 best restaurants in Mexico and they declined. They just didn’t want the attention and they’re already fully booked. AND the food was supergood. Also drank some organic wine that’s been processed naturally and tasted more like cider without the carbonation.

Sabrina came over and we had some fun πŸ™‚ Took her and her husband to my favorite taco stand around the corner for some fancy dining πŸ™‚ There was a constant stream of people coming and asking for a photo with her.

Went to a birthday party…

Got new flashy claws…

Not sure what I’ll do for my birthday yet, but I have some ideas. The next day I’m flying to Sweden to celebrate some more. My nephew has his birthday the same day as me and a friend is having a huge birthday party as well.

That is all πŸ™‚ Gonna head out for some coffee now and read. Almost done with the 3rd book of ‘Dungeon Crawler Carl’… If you have good reading recommendations, please write a comment. Always looking for good new reads!

I’ll leave you with this video which I think is pretty funny…

Hugs, Puma

I sometimes have trouble planning my time and where to put my efforts. I want to do everything at the same time with no complications or hassles. I’m trying to build a Shopify site and obviously get stuck having to read manuals and tutorials. I tried to book a flight with some points and the site kept crashing. Spent about 3h total this week on the phone with support and getting transferred to different people. Finally I wrote them on Instagram and Twitter and got a call back on Friday. Worked on setting up an Instagram for Psychonaut Explorer and got every account (created 6) banned without even having the time to post anything on it. After asking around, I figured that I can’t use the word ‘Psychonaut’ because I guess it’s a forbidden word on IG. Finally have an account and I will share it as soon as I have some more stuff on it πŸ™‚

Aaaaanyways, this week is almost done and got a bunch of stuff accomplished after all!

Shot a bunch because there can never be enough smut πŸ™‚

Also got some touched up pics of me and Swedish Bella who I shot with in LA. Hope I run into her soon again! So damn tasty!

Worked on my Psychonaut stuff. Building the website is the hard part, but I like getting creative with the rest of the stuff…

Back at the gym. I feel weak and mobile as a shipping container. But I’m still pretty strong if you watch the video!

I was really motivated to train after watching my friends Ari & Mila compete last weekend. So much fun watching & cheering everyone on while stuffing myself with a croissant on the sidelines πŸ™‚

Had to do something about my hair too. Got recommended a new salon 5 minutes walking from my place. This will be my spot from now on. Already booked appointments for my nails and lashes too. Everyone was so nice and the owners husband is Swedish too. She called him up while I was there and we chatted in Swedish. AND they served me beer!

I have been looking for a new Spanish teacher. Tried a guy out, but not sure he’s the one. I did get this great book after his recommendation. Muchas gracias!

I’m also reading the series of ‘Dungeon Crawler Carl’ by Matt Dinniman. Finished book 1 & 2 and now on the 3rd one. I like them a lot as they have some humor in them.

“A man. His ex-girlfriend’s cat. A sadistic game show unlike anything in the universe: a dungeon crawl where survival depends on killing your prey in the most entertaining way possible.” From Amazon.

That was pretty much my week. More training, shooting and working on the website next week.

Nos vemos, Pumacita πŸ™‚

Soooo, I’ve been back from Italy for almost a week. Italy was an overindulgence of all the great & tasty things in life – pasta, wine, truffles, champagne, antipasto, pizza and lotttts of espressos. Not to forget, great friends who rent castles and invite you πŸ™‚ Thank you Andrea & Dasha!

Flew in to Rome and rented a car and drove towards Umbria. I love how people drive in Italy: fast and knowing not to idle in the left lane! Finally arrived and all I can say is just WOW! 2 houses and one of them had a church and an old jail cell underground! Like WTF, I want that in my future house! Not for religious purposes, but I could throw some awesome parties and troublemakers would be thrown in jail LOL…

I thought it was going to be a few days lying by the pool, but nope. Every day there were excursions. Among the things we checked out were the National Art Gallery of Umbria. A lot of historical religious art and what hit me is that it seemed pretty cruel back in the day. You look at a painting and then you realize the person is stepping on some people. Or someone with a knife in the head!

Obviously have to taste some wine when in Italy. They had made a reservation at the Tenuta Castelbuono. Not very familiar with architects or architecture, but this one is designed byΒ Arnaldo PomodoroΒ who apparently is very famous in Italy. Very cool and Dasha and I even tried to sneak some wine straight from the barrels πŸ˜‰

I’ve said it before, I like visiting churches. We went to see the great St Francis of Assisi in Umbria. I’m not great at history either, but it’s impressive in its’ size and I don’t think anyone would build anything like this today.

Had dinner at Il Frantoio which is a Michelin star restaurant. I tried a few Michelin star restaurants and unfortunately this one didn’t impress too much. The service was so so and everyone was sweating because the AC was off. But great views and I did tried pigeon for the first time πŸ™‚ I had the best company though!

A couple of nights we had dinner at the house and it was a pretty awesome setting to dine at sunset!

Some more pics checking out Umbria, Perugia and Assisi. Also some old men in windows and cats.

Checked out on Saturday morning and drove back to Rome. Never been there before so it was fun to check it out. I liked it, but don’t think I’ll be going to Rome again. I prefer all the little towns and was also recommended to go to Sardinia. Added to bucket-list πŸ™‚

My favorite place in Rome was the beach area. Only about 30 min drive from the city.

Saw the Spanish Steps and the famous Trevi fountain where Anita Ekberg took a dip.

Had yummy gelato, found a IKEA pop up store, cat instead of old men in a window, and skipped around in a bikini. You know, the usual stuff πŸ˜‰

That concludes my Italy trip. I hope to visit more places in Italy! And eat more truffles and carbonara pasta!

Here are a few more pics from Sweden too. Seeing friends, partying a bit, hanging out, and lots of animals πŸ™‚

Oh, and I did shoot some too. Have more pics coming, but this girl – altogether awesome. HoneyBabe, I think I love you πŸ™‚

This week I’ve tried to catch up on work and battle jetlag. Yesterday I watched my friends compete in a crossfit competition here in town and going there to cheer them on today again. Before I go I’m going to tell you to see this movie –> RRR. It’s so damn good and you can thank me later!

OK, some breakfast, more coffee and then heading out. Enjoy your Sunday!

As soon as I had jet lag somewhat in control, me and my sister packed our backpacks and took a train up to the northern parts of Sweden – VΓ₯lΓ₯dalen, for some hiking. We arrived in the afternoon, so we spent the night and had a sauna, hot tubbing and dinner.

We grabbed some breakfast to go the next morning and headed out on the trail. Beautiful morning and we decided we wanted to enjoy breakfast out in the nature instead of indoors. Felt pretty good to get the 11 kg backpack off my back for a bit too πŸ™‚

The first day was supposed to be a 13 km hike. We decided to take a little detour which added 5 km. This was to check out the ‘pyramids’ that are like sandhills and supposedly dates back from the ice age. Not sure I was that impressed. But it was also a perfect nap, coffee break and eat a snack spot there.

Reloaded on energy we hiked the last kilometers and finally spotted the cabin where we spent our first night. No running water, electricity or wifi. BUT, they had a sauna and after you ‘showered’ by hanging up a bucket of water and turning a tap on it. Perfect!

The second day of hiking was about 16 km. Beautiful day out and only caught some rain the last 20 min of hiking. The cabins have a rooms to dry stuff in, but we fired up our fireplace in our room and dried up.

Third day was mostly hiking on plains between mountains with great views.

My sis and I obviously hike in style, so when we found a nice spot, we popped a mini bottle of Champagne πŸ™‚

We been told that, in the end of our 3rd day hike, we would have to wade over a strong river to get to the other side. If the river had high water levels, it could be dangerous. They showed us at the cabin how to cross it safely. Holding on and facing each other and only moving one foot at the time. We got a bit nervous, but luckily when we showed up, the water was low. There was a strong current, but we crossed safely. Obviously we popped a bottle after that πŸ™‚
