I've reached the moment when new foods are no longer named something straightforward, and I simply ask for what I've never heard of before, eat whatever is served, and smile at the results. :)
Sorry, I can't remember any of the new foods I've eaten in the last days!

I am honestly astounded at how safe, civil, and clean Mexico City is. I've not seen much, but have been delighted with what I've discovered.
Love from Oaxaca -
OH WOW is it gorgeous! I'm in a state south of Mexico City and having a phenomenal trip.
Dia de los Muertos.  I owe you a journal entry.

"Yo no se manana..."
La cancion suena en un club de Oaxaca, me emociona, y me trae a un lugar de salsa hace poco tiempo... Verdaderamente, yo no se que pasare. Ningun sabe, realmente.

Mama Rumba! Azzzzzucar!
Last night my Mexico experience was... delicious. I drank tequila with friends, ate AMAZING tacos, and danced salsa at Mama Rumba with a large group of lively people (thanks, Jeya!)
Arriba Mexico!

I thought we were having earthquakes my entire first day. I continually grabbed walls and furniture attempting to stabilize myself. I tried to do so in a casual manner... But I don't think there is a casual way to do so.
Altitude sickness + pollution = constantly dizzy and often with a headache and nausea.
It often literally smells like rotting sewage. *sigh* All is well otherwise!
mini earthquake :)
Welcome to Mexico City!
