Where I stayed
Today was our first full day, and boy was it full. We met down in our hotel fro breakfast at 8AM, then we headed out for a full day of walking in the beautiful Mexican sun. First we went to the
After the cathedral we went to the ruins of Templo Mayor, which used to be the center of Tenochtitlan. It's quite astounding that there is this archeological site that is over 1,000 years old right smack dab in the middle of one of the world's largest cities. Picture having ancient
The weather here is so wonderful. It's sunny, but not too hot and not too humid. It's just warm and nice. I was growing tired of the cold European weather during January. Hence the title of this entry. The people in Mexico are much more friendly and eager to talk to you than they are in Europe. And the weather is, of course, much more pleasant.
After Templo Mayor we stopped at the roof top of a Holiday Inn to have some refreshments. I felt like I was on vacation with the great view and our ice cold drinks. And to think, all of my
After our short break at the rooftop, we headed to the Palacio de Bellas Artes (meaning Palace of Beautiful Art in english, pretty much). It had a lot of modern Mexican murals there, huge murals! I can't even envision how these painters were able to finish them. They all had so much detail, color, and symbolism. We weren't able to take photos unfortunately.
The food here has been very good so far. It's fairly light and easy to digest, and it's cheap! That's another reason why Mexico is better than Europe, everything is low-cost.

The night was a mix of English, Spanish, and French, but we had a great time. Here, they drink what is called "Mezcal", which is like a smokey tequila. It's really gross and really
I will post my pictures tomorrow, I promise! I even have a video from the bar we went to. Tomorrow will be a tiring day, because we are going to Teotihuacan to climb the huge pyramids! It should be really beautiful and exciting. I miss all of my friends and family so much, sorry that this entry is so long!
