Mar 19, 2020 - MX CITY

Copa Flight to MX City left Panama at 6:30 pm and arrived in MX City at 9:45 pm local time (one hour time change). Easy going through immigration with residency status here. With instructions to get us to the Airport Hostel where we are booked, we began our walk with taxi drivers hawking their offers all along the way. I was confused as to which terminal we were in since the instructions only mentioned “International” and “National” terminals instead of terminal 1 and terminal 2! As it turned out we were in the International terminal 2, and...

Mar 4, 2020 - Climate Crisis vs Bernie or Biden

——- A VOTER’S GUIDE TO CLIMATE CHANGE According to NASA, the Earth’s average temperature has increased a little more than one degree Celsius since 1880, with two-thirds of that change happening since 1975. A big reason for that rise is the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which has reached the highest levels ever seen in human history. Scientists say it will take Herculean efforts to prevent the temperature from rising another two degrees in the not-too-distant future. These may seem like small numbers, but keep in mind this is...

Feb 27, 2020 - To MX City

SLC 20 minutes early...nice layover till 9:45am then onward and upward, ha! It is simply amazing how many people are flying everywhere. Met a fellow, Ben, on the plane going to New Orleans for work on a IT cable going underwater to an oil platform. Started work with this Brit or German or Dutch owned company which started business with a fellow living in Kalispell in his garage just a year or so ago. This fellow moved to Missoula and Ben joined the business 3 months ago (he was the 3rd employee). Now the outfit has 7 employees and is...

Apr 18, 2019 - Teotihuacan

Today we went to Teotihuacan....an ancient city inhabited from approximately 400BC to approximately 600AD. First we had to leave Mexico City by driving north for over an hour. In the far north of the city sare multi-colored barios. In one subdivision a tram has been installed to transport people to the subway. Beyond the outskirts, the barios continue. There is a statue of a winged man that sits at the outskirts. A fence has been built toarrest the influx of people. Not far out of the city traffic slowed to a crawl. An accident had happened...

There were 5 of us....a Colombian couple, a man from Madrid, Spain and us. Ivan, the tour guide switched easily from Spanish to English so everyone understood.

Of note is Avenida Reforma originally Empress Charlotte after Maximillian's wife which...

Apr 16, 2019 - Mexico City

We left Latacunga and drove to the outskirts of Quito and stayed overnight Sunday at the Posada Mirolinda. It was sad to see Yedi take our car back to Ribas. But our time with it was over. At 5a we were served breakfast by the Posada and 5.45a saw us at the Aeromexico counter checking in. Our flight was on time, and uneventful. We were met by a Viater service agent, escorted to a waiting SUV and driven into town. Both the driver and our escort pointed out landmarks. We had drinks in the hotel bar and took a patron's advice....for a...

Aug 25, 2018 - Travelling to start

August 23 & 24 (Friday / Saturday) I love travelling, but the worst thing about travelling is the actual travel days. Air travel in the States is much worse because of the level of security, the impossibility to have luggage moved on to more than one location at a time, so needing to go through pick up luggage everytime, go through customs, and checks. And as your travel agent rarely allows for this additional time, you are always against the clock. I attempted to get out of the air port to see Mexico City at night by taking a town bus from...
