Hola, amigos. I just wanted to say hello from Mexico City. I’m staying with friends and we’re having so much fun. On this trip, I’ve definitely embraced my inner tourist, complete with camera hanging around the neck and wallet necklace stuffed under my clothes. Some of the most interesting stuff, though, has come just from hangin’ with the locals and trying to roll my Rs as much as possible. I got a little sunburned on the pyramids today, so maybe I’ll blend in soon enough.
Here are some highlights from the trip. I will be back home soon with a gazillion more photos.
(The first photo is a Diego Rivera mural at Palacio Nacional in Zocalo. They are so amazing! And below is from a fancy breakfast we had in Centro. They brought me birthday cake after our breakfast and everyone sang to me).
After a lot of running around, Rodrigo got me some of my own mariachis. Well, sort of. We pulled into Plaza Garibaldi, where bunches of mariachis stand just waiting to get hired for an event or to play on the spot. They sang me three songs, and I was mucho impressed.
This is the Cathedral that is just breathtaking.
