Argh. Wrote this entry and my google crashed. I hate rewriting things, so this will be shorter than original one.
Last weekend George and I went to Mexico City, well, we went from Wednesday afternoon to Saturday afternoon. It was a great break from the hills. It was nice to be walking on flat solid ground without roaches caught in the cracks, or having to squish onto the wall to let the cars pass. Our first two nights we stayed in the Hampton Inn close to the centre, it was nice to have a room in a style I am more used to, except there was no real window. It was weird. Our first evening there we saw the soldiers take down the large Mexican flag from the Zocalo. We then walked down this shopping street that would have looked very much like Sparks street if it wasn't for all the riot police along both sides of the street.
Next day we explored on foot. We saw many nice buildings and museums and the ruins that were found under the city. Mexico City is super nice and has a mix of all kind of architecture. Our third night we
stayed at the Melia. It was not quite in the Centro Historico, but close to many cool things. We had fun going out to eat and exploring, but we will definitely to go back to get to see everything.
