Mexico City. Off the boat for a few days.

We have never been around so many people in all our lives. It was so crowded for miles and miles, that we could not even find transportation to get out. So we ended up walking for miles through these thick mobs of people. We were the only gringos we found.

The Museum of Anthropology was amazing. We were dumbfounded learning about the ancient civilizations and various tribes dating back to 200 AD. One of the most sacred Gods of all Mesoamerica is Quetzalcoatl, with all the brilliant feathers.

We sure had a great time running around the giant Mexico City with our special friends on SV Simplicity. Denton, Chrissy and Danika. We were here applying for our long stay visas for French Polynesia and planned a few awesome touristy things! We learned how to use the labyrinth of the difficult, color coded Metro too.

We took time to ride the longest Cable Bus public transportation in the world. It only cost 7 pesos each (.35 cents) to get miles across Mexico City. Last year, the government paid for hundreds of huge, beautiful murals to be painted on the rooftops of homes and businesses. As if the buildi gs aren’t colorful enough! It was a gondola ride and art show, all in one! If you travel here, don’t miss it.
