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...

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...

Feb 18, 2018 - Mexico City (In Transit)

@@@@@@@ KAPOORS ON THE ROAD We’ve always stayed at Casa Comtesse in the Condessa neighbourhood of Mexico City whenever we’ve visited before, or when we’re passing though the capital on our way from one country to another. In fact, we stayed there again when we first arrived on January 23rd, but when we asked for a reservation for the night of February 18th, they were fully booked. Bummer! For that reason, we were forced to find a hotel elsewhere, and we managed to find one quite near the airport that provided a free shuttle for our arrival...

@@@@@@@ Here’s some of what the Lonely Planet – Mexico has to say about Mexico City: BACKGROUND Much-maligned Mexico City is cleaning up its act these days. Revamped public spaces are springing back to life, the culinary scene is exploding and a cultural renaissance is flourishing. And here’s the kicker: by somehow managing to distance itself from the drug war, the nation’s capital has emerged as a ‘safe haven’ of sorts. Remember that Mexico City is, and has ever been, the sun in the Mexican solar system. A stroll through the buzzing...

May 29, 2017 - "So Far From God, So Close To The United States"

"Poor Mexico....So Far From God, So Close To The United States"! A popular saying in Mexico attributed to Porfirio Diaz, a dictator who ruled Mexico for 35 years until 1910 and the start of the Mexican revolution. That sums up Mexico's troubled relationship with its giant neighbour to the north. Relations between the US and Mexico were particularly bad for much of the 19th century, the result of vicious wars and annexation by the US of a large chunk of Mexican territory. In recent decades, particularly since the signing more than 20 years...
