So Erika picks me up from the Metro station near her home near Coyoacan. I meet her family (ruben (dad) Lety (mam), Ruben Jr (son) and Jorge (son)), drop off my bags and head out to a bar to see USA V Argentina in the copa America.
USA 1 - 4 Argentina. Good game and nice bar. We search the neighbourhood for a nightclub and go in and Salsa to the early hours. Well Erika salsa`d , i just stood on her feet
the next few days involve tourist stuff, her dad cooking a lovely fish dinner, cinema, the Pyramids of Teotihuacan, and another night out at an expensive night club.
US$7 a beer!
So Erika and I go to a local store and drink a few bottles of beer for US$0.70 each.(her idea i swear) We all know i am tight but US$7 a beer. I am a sweaty backpacker you know.
The next day we travel to Morelos and Cuernavaca to visit Erikas aunties house and have an amazing BBQ and watch Mexico beat Equador 2-1.
The last day and night i spend touring the city going to the Frida Kahlo exhibition in the Palacio Belles Artes, go see Estadio Aztecas, and go for the best sushi i have ever had with Erika.I also buy my nephew `Ross`a Lucha Libre wrestling suit for his 1st birthday. He will look amazing in it.
I had an amazing time here in Mexico City with Erika and her family. They were so nice and even though i stayed 5 nights (ages) i never once felt that i was in the way.
As for Erika, i will miss her loads. she is such a beautiful person and hopefully she will come to Playa del Carmen in 2 weeks and meet me there.
Next stop......The silver mining town of Taxco
