Hotel Baluarte is just a few blocks away from the sea and the zocalo, both within few minutes walking distance. Gran Cafe de la Parroquia, an institution in Veracruz, is also nearby. The pool is quite small, but it's good enough to take a dip in to cool off from the scorching heat of Veracruz. Very neat and tidy hotel. The receptionists don't speak English and they really couldn't help much in suggestingw hat places to see -- but I realised, it's the same elsewhere even in 4/5-star hotels in the city.

The following morning I did go round the WHOLE of the city and spent about 9 hours on the metro, going to visit all the last music venues I needed to complete my little writing assignment.

Said our goodbyes before our 8.45am flight from Heathrow to Atlanta. 4 hour stop off was filled with a couple of Blue Moons watching Baltimore Ravens v Indianapolis Colts. Arrived late in Mexico City and turns out we checked into the wrong hostel! No ...

... was missing. He turned out to be a great room mate as I learnt a lot from this successful businessman who had his roots in Mexico City.

We were to gather soon for cocktails followed by an outdoor dinner party, a real treat of local food served from food stands, and games to play to win fake money for an auction later. I think I must have won close to 10,000 Pesos once I figured out which games I had better odds in. I did not bid for anything but contributed the money ...

Our first stop, Fonda Margarita

The best! Delicious, basic authentic Mexican food prepared by older ladies who speak no English, but treat Gringos kindly. In addition, we were serenaded by an acoustic guitar player and a singer. Please let this entire trip be as lovely as this first stop.

I leaned about this place watching the Travel Channel Show, No Reservations. The shows host, Anthony Bourdain, is a well known chef who gave up the daily ...
