What a weekend!!! First I attended J Balvin's #vibrastour concert in Chicago courtesy of Toyota, who also let me borrow their Toyota Camry for the week. The next day I had a delicious dinner date with the fiance and to finish Strong we decided to explore Pilsen on sunday. 

During the 3 years I've been in Chicago I've visited Pilsen probably 2 or 3 times, but I've never taken the time to actually explore this popular Chicago Neighborhood and appreciate the street art and murals that distinguish the neighborhood as a center of Mexican culture, creativity and self-expression. Being content creation the best excuse to explore any city to find the most insta-worthy spots, we jumped on  our brand new borrowed  car and took it for a ride.

We definitely had a lot of fun driving this car around and stopping along the way to take pictures of the murals,  in front of the murals and even people painting murals! If you're visiting Chicago or even if you live here but (like me) never had the chance to explore Pilsen before, I definitely recommend you to do it! If Pilsen is old news for you and you know of a place I HAVE TO GO, let your girl know! I'm already planing my next visit.

Que fin de semana! Primero fui al concierto de J.Balvin cortesia de Toyota que tambien me dejo tomar prestado uno de sus carros por toda la semana. Al siguiente dia tuve una cena deliciosa con Eric y por ultimo decidimos explorar Pilsen en Domngo.

Ya tenia tiempo que queria visitar este popular Barrio de Chicago conocido mas que nada por su arte callejero y murales que representan la cultura mexicana , creatividad y expresion artistica de los que ahi residen. Asi que aproveche mi nuevo carro y me lo lleve a pasear a pilsen para tratar de encontrar los espacios mas fotogenicos (todo sea por el instagram!).

La verdad que me diverti mucho conduciendo este carro y parando en cada lugar a tomar fotos de los murales, y hasta de gente pintando murales! Ya estoy planeando mi siguiente visita asi que si saben de algun lugar que tengo que visitar o probar dejeme saber !
