mexico city

by amy.

Hi, im travelling to mexico city from australia to study for 4 weeks and just have a few questions...

I will be studying at La Salle University, is this in a convenient location to shops/food and easy to get to?

Are mobile SIM cards easy to buy?

I want to bring my laptop, but will i need a different adapter to charge it?

Thats all for now, more later i think!

Hi Amy.

La Salle has a couple of schools located in different parts of the city. The city has all the services, you can find food at any time, any day of the week, don´t worry about it.

You can buy a new mobile for less than 30 USD, or just a sim card for 15 usd approx.

I don´t know what kind of plug you use in Australia, but I think you will definitely need an adapter.

I´m sure you will like Mexico City a lot. Good luck!

Oh thats cheap enough for the phone or sim card!

Ok, i will look into the laptop thing a bit more

I think ill enjoy it. Although im a bit nervous at the moment because everyone is telling me horror stories, oh well! I dont leave until the end of jan.

Thanks for your help :)

Yeah i understand i just need to be careful and continue to ignore all the stories!

So my laptop charger says 100V to 240V. Does that mean i need the converter aswell?

Travel Tips for Mexico City

A mini VT meeting here in Mexico City

by malianrob

We were very fortuneate to meet up with Yvon (ledragon) from Canada. He was going to be in Mexico City before we got there and was leaving the day after we arrived so we scheduled a meet the day we arrived. It is so much fun meeting different people from different parts of the world and at least one thing that you know for sure that you have in common is a love for travel and VT.
It was great meeting up with Yvon and it was awesome getting to know VT members who couldnt make it to the meeting but kept in touch via email etc...
Thank you everyone!

Spanish Empire

by cobrioc

The varied elements of this region stem partly from its history as one of the richest silver mining areas in the Spanish empire, ehere the wast wealth of the Europeans who profited from the silver stood in contrast to the men who worked the mines and the native Indian tribes who scrathed out a living here.

Most of the hotel and airport...

by DrRodder

Most of the hotel and airport staff can speek some English. Take a translator book or know some Spanish.
The city has a high crime rate and it is stronglly recommened not to be out after dark walking the streets alone. Travel in groups and in high traffic areas.

Luggage Cart

by Aptypo

Pack this luggage cart INSIDE your carry-on bag. A sturdy little cart folds to a compact 16-1/2 x 10-1/2 x 3-1/2" to fit inside just about any carry-on bag. At your destination, pull up its telescoping aluminum tubes to 39", drop its hard-molded plastic tray, and tote up to 80 lb of luggage. Has quiet 3" wheels, safety-lock elastic cord to eliminate "snap-back," and button on handle for one-hand locking (up or down). Weighs 2-1/2 lb.

Krishna festival in Mexico City

by Laura_Mexico

One of my in-law relatives joined the Krishna community in Mexico a couple of years ago, and this year she invited my man (her uncle) and me to the yearly festival they hold in Mexico City.

In no way do I want to promote this or any other religion -- I'm just adding this tip because it was a different experience that other people, like me, may enjoy to have. The Krishna festival takes place every year in our hometown; it is my understanding that it usually takes place in May but this year it had to be postponed due to the swine flu outburst and the instruction that people should not attend crowded places, etc. So it took place in early October instead and it was pretty interesting to attend this activity since you almost felt as if you were in another country.

They start the festival with a parade where you can see big parade floats (one or more of them holding the Krishna deities, who only come out of their temple these 2 days as they remain in the temple the rest of the time) and people dressed in a Hindu style dancing. They start on Reforma ave. and then reach Parque Mexico (in the Condesa area, Sonora & Mexico streets) where a big stage is placed to both host the deities/altar (picture 1) and where different performances take place: dancers, musicians and actors offer different shows which are pretty attractive. Pictures 2-5 show some images of the Krishna dancers I saw and which I liked very much.

Next to the stage there's an open area where several stands are installed and where some Krishna food is served/sold (they're vegetarians so most of their food is soy-based; they also eat dairy and bread and several desserts), where you can buy genuine hindu clothes and accesories and books, and where yoga and dancing lessons are offered as well. Many people attending the festival belong to the community and therefore were dressed in a Hindu style: many women were wearing Saris and they looked really nice. The whole atmosphere made you feel as if you were not in Mexico but in India..... very interesting indeed.

Free admittance to all of the activities and even some of the food they give away is for free; the rest of the stuff is sold but apparently the prices are decent.
