we pulled into mexico city at 11am on our overnight bus from palenque. i was so excited to be going to this massive city, i never in a million years thought we would be. with the population exceeding 8.8 million people, i always imagined total chaos when i pictured mexico city. and we were shocked to find that it was relatively calm and organized with fantastic public transportation and tons of things to do and see. we spent our days exploring the city, visiting museums and ruins and eating delicious street food. sadly, graham returned back to canada one week after we arrived. we had a fantastic 6 weeks together and were sad to see our traveling partner, history teacher, sarcastic jerk, jokester, michelada/coco loco amigo, espanol competitor, gay magnet, money bags, plastic stir stick sipper, mejor hermano and cuñado go. unfortunately around the time graham was leaving, tages started to get sick with a bad cold. i think with any big city, you are exposed to a ton of new germs and getting sick is pretty easy. we couldn't do all of the things we wanted to do because she didn't have the energy for all the stairs and subway
changes it takes to get around. i am positive we will make it back to mexico city soon and explore the city even more. there are a ton more museums, flea markets, churro places, mercados and more that we need to see. and...tages didn't get to see Xochimilco which is a must for anyone!
