Mexico City

July 3rd, 2009 | Posted by Davey in 19-Mexico

We stopped off in Mexico City for 3 days en route to Honduras.  We weren’t expecting much but were pleasantly surprised by its charm and vibe, a real gem.

Seeing a beetle taxis whiz past every two seconds was a good start.  Anybody cool enough to drive one of these hippy vehicles for a living is cool enough for us.  We started with a tour of the city on the usual open top bus.  The food on the street was delicious, albeit dripping with fat.  We had (to name but a few):

  • chilpachole
  • tortillas
  • taquitos
  • chimichangas
  • empanadas
  • tamaleschoriqueso
  • glorias
  • chorizo
  • enchilada
  • fajita
  • flautas
  • cocido
  • fritadas de camaron
  • cochinita pibil
  • gringas
  • gorditas

We definitely left carrying an extra inch (or two). 

I won’t write anymore but just let the pics speak for themselves.  A great stopover!
