So here I am in the Big Smog! This is hip and happening Mexico City and I'm having a blast!.

I arrived here on Monday on a flight from Playa Del Carmen that gave so much food! (makes a nice change from teeny tiny pretzels). I was driven to my new appartment and greeted there by Liam, my English housemate, and several cockroaches. Well the appartment is nice and Liam is cool so two out of three is good enough.

My schedule is a bit hectic and I was teaching the next day. Mexico City is a very, very large city and the metro system is cool and I am very dependant on it. It only costs 2 pesos for a single ride anywhere (about 10p). No zones, no peak off peak, no long named lines, no complications. I think London could take a leaf outta MEX metro system. Saying that I have been shoved on a train after getting off and I have been shown the delights of cuddly toys, CDs, and keychains on the trains!

I`ve met some other teachers here and they all are cool, and some fellow expats where we had a nice brunch/lunch/dinner last weekend. Been out a bit and seen the sights and the people here are nice and friendly yet no English is spoken so I'm having to say alot of 'no entiendo or comprende espanol'!

Well I'll do another update with some pictures. Either I'll buy a cheapo digi cam or make friends with someone who ownes one! (i think the latter)

Speak soon,
Adios amigos,

Amit
