Sadly, if we are in Mexico City we are near the end of our trip. Some of us have already been here on previous trips. While here, we will be staying at Hotel Metropol very near the downtown and very close to the famous Parque Alameda. Here we see it at night. It is huge! In the lower right-hand corner of the photo you can see the dome of Bellas Artes, the main theatre in Mexico City where they perform the Folklorico Ballet. If you have heard of the ballet and wish to go, we can attempt to get tickets for Sunday morning.
Check out this YouTube of Ballet Folklorico – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45KAm_pUEFE
The main two events today will be travelling to San Angel Bazaar, a short bus ride from Downtown. We will have time to walk around on our own and see the incredible items for sale.
Grab a cold or hot drink, buy a snack BUT don’t spoil your lunch as we will be visiting the world famous Xochimilco for a boat ride on the canals while enjoying lunch and trying out more beer and tequila, if you have not already had enough! Karen will remember this very well!!! LOL
All in good fun….but we never miss a chance on our trip to DF to come back here and unwind…
Back to our hotel where we will have time to relax and sober up (LOL) before setting out to explore Mexico City in late afternoon. This evening…???
Tomorrow you will have an opportunity to either attend the Ballet or head off with Sergio to the National Anthropology Museum before heading back to our respective homes… For others you may choose the historical ruins in the heart of Mexico City – Tenochtitlan or just walk around the main square again …the second largest in the world! Its not always as busy as it looks in this photo!
