Flag of Mexico  ,
Sunday, May 29, 2005

After a leisurely morning eating Dunkin Donuts we set off in search of some Binoculars (to repay poor Marco in the Amazon!!). We don't have to go far before we have bought not only binoculars for Marco but Fergus too and a tripod! We drop these back at the hotel, before we pick up a $90 set of Motorola walkie talkies.... its definetly time to go home now... so we pick up a couple of corona beers and relax for the afternoon.

We decide to treat ourselves this evening to a meal in a balcony restaurant overlooking the Zocalo square ( Zocalo houses the Cathedral and Palace and the largest flag in the WORLD!!! - Fergus's opinion).
We haven't even ordered when its apparent this is going to be anything but a peaceful meal! There has been a soccer final which apparently Mexico city have won, and the Mexicans are ready to celebrate! It gradually gets louder with car horns blowing, people chanting and waving flags. Its not unusual to see a small motorbike pass by with 4 people on the back! People are sitting on the roof's of cars screaming and waving flags its very amusing! Unfortunately however we have to go back and pack, so theres no celebrating done by us.
