....so after a sad goodbye at LAX, we jumped on the plane headed south. we nervously made it thru customs, trying our pathetic best to use whatever spanish we new to get us through (none). Found a cab, then our hostel - a nice renovated hotel in the centro historico. and what made it even better was the fact it was only $10 a night!
...i´m slowly getting used to the spanish keyboards, so excuse the poor punctuation. First impressions of Mejico City are all good... when you win the game of russian roulette that is ordering from a menu the food is great, streets are clean & it feels safe. Spent the day today checking out the museo de antropologica, zoo (i think broomy now has a crush on bears¡?), and a neat art gallery in the palacio de bellas artes where all three of us (hangin with kiwi ash again) were told on separate occasions not to take photos inside the gallery because we didn´t buy the correct type of ticket.
the evening we decided we´d check out a some wrestling... hilarious! we bought overpriced tickets from scalpers out the front (we´re rookies), and almost gave our camera´s to security staff forever before a girl warned us not to (even bigger rookie move), but smuggling the camera´s in, we thoroughly enjoyed the show.... apparently we missed the midget wrestling though... too late.
today we headed out to teotihuacan.... ruins of a city about 2000 years old... most of it was restored but you really got the feel for what it was. quite an amazing place. also visited some local aztec ruins and basilica de guadalupe which were also neat....
tomorrow we´re headed to Oaxaca!
