Petite journée tranquille aujourd'hui. Comme c'est une fin de semaine de 3 jours, beaucoup de trafique donc on ne peut aller trop loin. Nous sommes allés à l'UNAM, l'universisad national autonoma de Mexico. Une très grande fierté pour les Mexicains. La plus grande et importante université de l'Amerique latine. Et gratuite en plus. Pour y entrer il faut avoir de très bonnes notes et passer des examens très difficiles. Quand nous y sommes entrés, ils nous ont collé des carrés rouges sur le chandail....( la comprenez-vous....).

The flight from Portlad to Houston was relatively uneventful. Mia behaved as well as can be expected for an almost two year old at midnight. Thankfully we had a young couple seated next to us and not some uptight senior citizen to chastize me on manners and children these days. Continental now offers DirecTV during your flight for a mere $6. I tried to sleep as best I could but it wasn't pretty and the layover in Houston didn't help. Upon arrival in Mexico City, I will need to pass off my child and attempt a nap. Thankfully, the flight from Houston to Mexico City addressed the issue of the FM-T visa that we need because we're staying in Mexico beyond the "border zone". Our State Department mentions the visa but when I called Continental to ... read more
