About the owner: Petra, the German owner (she speaks German, English, Spanish and French) has lived and worked as a journalist in Mexico for nearly 30 years. When authorities began to spruce up the decaying Centro Histórico ten years years ago, she bought two apartments on the top floor of a stately (and earthquake-safe) building between the Zocalo and Bellas Artes.
Before moving in, she totally remodeled, modernized and redecorated both properties – one to live in herself, the other to put up friends, relatives and paying guests when visiting Mexico.
