Our favourite things: November 2017.

We’ve been here and we’ve been there, and our team have found a few things we thought we’d share.

Don Pablo
What? Casa Malca
Where? Tulum, Mexico
Why? We all know Pablo Escobar, right? Colombian drug lord? Subject of Netflix’s Narcos? Well, he had a house. A big one. After sitting empty for 14 years, it was turned into a 42-room luxury hotel full of paintings, sculpture and furniture from revered modern artists including Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring. Tamsin Wressell.

Go postal
First-class action at London’s Postal Museum: its first temporary exhibition, Writing Home — Letters as a Lifeline (until 21 January) looks at the power of the post to connect people across the world, via stories from loved ones writing home; and the Mail Rail lets visitors journey back in time under the museum, into the 100-year-old labyrinth of tunnels that comprise the Royal Mail’s former engineering depot and sorting office. Choo choo!
