Day 11 - Mexico City

So, went to a bakery just off the Zocalo with Brooke (NZ), Steve (UK), Nick and Brendon (Canada) and Brittany (US).

We went and had a look around the Zocalo.

It's amazing. Third biggest square in the world. They had these Aztec dancers blowing smoke onto people to remove evil spirits.

Didn't have enough smoke for my spirits though. :)

The most bizarre thing, this guy walked past us dressed as a power ranger. No joke.

He strolled past us and gave us a nod. He didn't ask for any money. He was just checking out the stalls. He must have woken up that morning and opened his wardrobe and said: "Hmmm, jeans and a t-shirt...... no it's definitely a power rangers day today."

We toured the Mayor Temple which was pretty crazy. They only discovered it in the 1970s as it was buried beneath some houses.

I'm loving Mexico City. The buildings are architecturally incredible, people are so friendly and the bakery was $1 for a sandwich and two pies. Nice!

Went out with Paulina and her friends this evening. Paulina is teaching me Spanish. We went to Coyoacan and then Condesa. Ended up in an Irish Bar sharing a bottle of Vodka between six of us. It was great to go out with five locals and they even managed to pursuade me to get up and have a dance. Check me out huh!

Got to sleep at 6am. Oh, two bags of laundry here cost me $5. Just amazing.

See you.

  1. That's Bobafett, not a power ranger - or maybe Jangofett.
