Claus, I'm envious but I'll have to miss this one. I don't get to Loreto until Dec 15. If you're still in country and want a side trip to the Baja, let me know.

Re: vt meeting in mexico city.

by cachaseiro

i will al.
i think i will be in the southern part of mexico though, but i am not totally decided yet.

Re: vt meeting in mexico city.

by GlobeTrekr

Hey Claus, where exactly will you be traveling throughout southern Mexico and for how long? Solo or with a group? Just wondering because we will be down there during that time as well! Thinking of flying into Cancun and trekking northward through Chiapas and Oaxaca ending up in Michoacan.

Not sure if we'll be around DF on Nov.25 but will let you know.

Re: vt meeting in mexico city.

by cachaseiro

i will be travelling in mexico on my own.
will fly in on november 24 and then have the vt meet on november 25.
after that i plan to travel by bicycle around mexico.
i will most likely focus on the oaxaca province, but it is not decided yet.

HI again Claus!

well, now I have cancelled/postponed my foray into San Miguel de Allende this week, due to the HORRIFIC gato-sitters I had!! dismissed them a week early. husband is back home on 18th, so if I am rescheduling my trip to SMA and coming thru MexCity, I will sure let you and Laura know........

Re: vt meeting in mexico city.

by cachaseiro

it would be really nice to see you there :O)

Re: vt meeting in mexico city.

by Laura_Mexico

Trish, sorry about the gato sitters but it would be AWESOME if you could reschedule and be here for the meet, yay! No more being a VA LOL.

Claus it's great that you posted this here, I was thinking about doing it but I truly didn't think we'd get many more attendees this way hehehe. It'd be great if we did though..... Looking forward to meeting you here!!!

Re: vt meeting in mexico city.

by ViajesdelMundo

thanks, Laura; yes, I was starting to consider it, BUT then checked the calendar and saw that the 26th is THANKSGIVING DAY, and we alwayshae a special dinner with other ex-pat friends here; and since Trevor has been away for a month (altho I was with him in Phoenix to visit grandbaby, of course), I think it just isn't going to work for me that week.

sorry.

(and if interested, I just posted some baby pics in a Travelogue on my HP.)

Travel Tips for Mexico City

the Colonial Heartland of Mexico

by cobrioc

Silver mining town called Real de Catorce, which is being reborn as a rugged tourist destination, that this one night reflected the range of experiences I had seen over a 10-day otur through what is known as the Colonial heartland of Mexico.
In cities such as San Luis Potosi, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Aguascalientes,
Zacatecas and real de Gatorce, I found both the rustic and refined. Though seemingly inhospitable, the craggy, cactus-covered desert mountains of this region are home to cities of enormous beauty and sophistication, rich in culture and history.

The City's monuments

by ciberamigo

The many layers of history accumulated plus the capital-city status have provided a large amount of statues and monuments to be found everywhere in the city.

Paseo de la Reforma Avenue offers an historical stroll from the Centro Historico to Chapultepec park as the traffic circles commemorate historical events: The discovery of America in the first circle, with the monument to Columbus; the conquest of Mexico in the second circle, with the monument to Cuauhtemoc (the last Aztec emperor, who defended the city against the spanish); the third circle is for the colonial period, but since that is still a taboo in Mexico, there is only a palm tree; Independence monument is located in the fourth traffic circle. 36 statues along the avenue between these circles honor other significant Mexican personalities.

Reforma's central section ends at the beginning of Chapultepec Park. After the gate, flanked by two lion sculptures, the main path moves toward the Altar de la Patria monument, which remembers the Mexican army who fought against the U.S. invasion of 1847. Inside Chapultepec park there are many sculptures, fountains and memorials.

street shoe shining

by Manyana

ok, i have seen shoe shining before but as street-professional as this. usually i see a guy in a corner with a rug and a tiny piece of wood where he places the foot/shoe on to shine. but in mexico, this comes with a whole package; a seat for the shoe-shiner, a cushion for the customer, an umbrella, a box of tools, and a bike to drag the whole package, and to drive around. there are quite a few in zocalo and around. gentlemen with ties and ladies with scarves opt to take a seat at one of these shoe-shining bikes and have their shoes shone.

perhaps i'd take one of these street shoe shining session when i'm next in mexico. that's for sure. if you don't have time to take care of yourself, it's such a quick luxury in a simple busy place.

Grisley sport

by counsel14

Going to a bull fight seems to be the most enjoyed spectator sport in Mexico City. We went to one more out of curiosity than anything else. I don't think I realized that the bulls actually are hurt during the "fights". The picadores come out and slam a spike into the spinal cords of the bulls (right behind their head) and this seems to make the bull "feel no pain" according to another visitor there.

Then the matadors come out and do their fancy twirling and strutting around the bull as the bull charges them. Lots of flapping capes and crowd yellings at this point. After the bull is fairly exhausted, these fellows on horseback with really big spears show up and all charge the bull. Spears thrown, swords flashing and the bull is down. The crowd gets to it's feet, shouting and laughing. horrible. horrible. camera, vomit bags

The town of Cuernavaca

The town of Cuernavaca
A little more than an hour south of Mexico city over the mountains, you will find this town used by Mexico City residents for retreat. The place is lovely, the houses are perched on the side of the mountain and have colonial influences. Visit the Palace of Cortes, nearby is the colonial plaza.
