One must always take note of the things in a country that really stand out to him/her, por ejemplo, one who visits Paris and doesn't see graffiti probably didn't actually visit Paris, France, but possibly Paris, Texas. So my list for Mexico City is going to have to start with highway on ramps. These suckers are more like sharp left turns into oncoming traffic. Exhilarating, Yes! Conducive with an average life span of 78 years, not so much! On another note, who would have thought that there could be more Starbuck's coffee houses in a single square mile in Mexico City than any other place on earth? At one point driving down the road I could see three separate Starbuck's from my window within 30 seconds. It catches you off guard too, because you are just watching the shops roll by Taqueria, Farmacia, another Farmacia, and then wham... a Starbuck's. Maybe tomorrow I'll do a Starbuck's count.
So, after my siesta we headed out to the center of Coyocan to do a little market hopping and see la Iglesia de San Jaun Bautista, where Aislynn was baptized. The whole area was under construction unfortunately and we didn't really get to enjoy the beautiful parks surrounding the church
Its time for that special category...yep, you guessed it... Special made-up Spanish phrases of the day. Today's phrases include: 1. Ahorra puede poner su mente por la cama (Now you can put your mind in the bed), I was actually trying to say, "Now you can put your mind to rest". 2. Ace-all-een-a (Aislynna) es muy carro esos dias ( Aislynn is very expensive these days), however this was meant to be a play on words, as adding the a to the end of her name and saying it the way I have so conveniently syllabalized it for you, thus the reference goes hand in hand with the word gasoline. I hope that wasn't completely wasted on you my friends, because I thought it was pretty clever. At any rate, I'm tired and it's past my bedtime, so stay tuned for day 2 aka manana.
