Visiting Mexico City (again)

As some might know this isn't my first time in Mexico. Last summer I already spend 6 weeks in this beautiful country. And like last time I wanted to visit Mexico City, One of the largest cities in the world and if you are used to the cities in the Netherland this is something incredible and I never saw a city so big in my life before. But as some might remember as well, I haven't got many good memories of my last visit in Mexico City. First it was the time that I had to say goodbye to both Mexico and Tere. Next to that last time I got horribly sick. Yeahh I know it isn't the best thing to eat ice-cream in a country like Mexico (made from regular water), but yeah I did it and the last time I was in Mexico my body started to react to that ice-scream and I was walking with that virus for 4 to 5 months.
Luckily this time everything was different, I wasn't feeling sick, the weather was great (last time it was a little bit gloomy) and everything around me was saying that it would be an amazing day. And it was....... The main reason why we went to Mexico City was because of an exposition at the Zocalo. It was something Tere really wanted to see and I thought I would be great as well. Arriving in Mexico City we caught up with a close friend to Tere, and I consider him as a close friend too. It was Mexico City expert Edgar, but many people just call him Zayas.
Arriving at the Zocalo we had to wait in line for the exposition (around two hours), Luckily we did come in time because otherwise it would have been so much longer (people said that I would be around 5 hours), but the waiting in the line gave me the opportunity to make some photo's of the Zocalo and all the sights close to it.
After the 2 hours we finally went inside the exposition. Maybe a very interesting detail is that the exposition building was completely made out of sea containers and bamboo and the exposition was about the relationship between wild-life and humans.
After the exposition we did some sight-seeing in Mexico City. First we went to the Latin-American Tower, which was nice, but not something of which you would say. WOOW, let's go to Mexico City and see the Latin-American Tower.
After eating we went to see the "Revolution Monument" which was amazing. We had to do a detour, because in the road to the monument there were people staying that were on a strike or something.
All in all it was an amazing day and if you might think it those are the only things I have seen, No, I have see so many other things as well and there are still many thing I would like to see. But this all gives me good reason to visit Mexico City another time, because I really think that Mexico City is in the same line as cities like Paris, Berlin, Athens and Amsterdam.
