The house where Frida Kahlo grew up is blue and beautiful. It is filled with her art, clothing, painting supplies, books, cookware, even her bed is there. She is a long time hero of mine. It was such an amazing experience seeing where she grew up, and continued to live part time. Her art portrays her struggle, and a piece of Frida is captured within every work.
