As an antique dealer Rodrigo Rivera Lake knows something special when he sees it, and he continually finds treasures in home of Mexico City. He believes Mexico City is truly a city in the world, where else can you find pyramids, canals and ancient ruins?
The neighborhood of Tepito in Mexico City is the oldest area of the capital. So it’s surprising that in Mexico, it goes by a different name: Barrio Bravo, “the fierce neighborhood.” It gets its nickname from being one of the most dangerous areas in the city.
First stop Mexico City. Join Alexandra, as she visits "MUJAM," The Antique Toy Museum of Mexico. There we will meet Roberto Sr., a toy collector who created a museum to share millions of his toys with Mexico City. We will also meet his son Roberto Jr., who in addition to helping run the museum, recruits international street artists to paint along its walls. Finally, we catch Bastardilla in action, as the Colombian Street Artist sprays a piece on the museum storefront. ¡Vámonos !
