Living in Mascota


Chef Sergio Sánchez lives in the Mascota apartment complex, part of the Buentono buildings, built for British businessmen during the Porfirio Díaz era.

Sergio lives with his daughter Ana Paula, whom he sees little, because she is always away.

A lonely and entrepreneurial man who gave up painting and museography to devote himself to cooking and wine tasting as a sommelier.

Nostalgia always accompanies him; loneliness is his companion. Despite living in a very populated area downtown Mexico City, he spends his days alone.

One can stand alone in the middle of a crowd.

This is what it is like to live in Mascota.
