Moment in the sun in Mexico City

May 18th 2016
HE SAID... On our third day in Mexico City, we slept in a little as our ‘Mexico City Markets and Food Tour’ didn’t start until 8:45am. We headed out at 8:15am and started walking towards the Zocalo, the heart of the city. We love being in a place as it slowly wakes, regardless of whether it’s a large city or tiny village.

Workers of the World--Unite and Eat!
Brilliant to take these tours to spots that took me days to cover--plus, you got the insider tips. You two have true travelers' stamina!

I loved and was howling at Ren's food descriptions: "pulque--kinda probiotic, an adultier version of kombucha with a home brew smell" and "tortilla soup as liquid nachos"--but you're totally right! Glad you found some dogs to pet! Best wishes on a better tummy for the marrow.

I don't think we would have made time to visit the witchcraft market if it hadn't been included in the tour, and it was such an eye-opener! We caught the metro a few times and we were fine...I have sympathy for the guy who got robbed, but he was silly enough to carry his wallet in his pocket (even after he was advised not to). It was definitely my preferred way of moving around the city, however if I hadn't been used to catching crowded trains in other dense cities (especially to/from work when you have no choice), I'd probably have found it quite confronting.
