Mexico City

Well I have no idea if this will work seeing as I am having to create an HTML doc in Word and my tag knowledge is pretty limited! So everyone be jolly impressed if it does work in any shape, way or form please! Anyway, I have finally arrived in Mexico City after a pretty nasty 25 hour journey door to door. Still, havent wasted much time and have been out to Teotihuacan, an Aztec ruin with the worlds 3rd largest pyramid which was cool. Have some great photos too which at some stage I will hopefully get to put up, and my traditional dose of first day sunburn. At least I will no longer get asked which country I come from….

A scarily high proportion of people in my hostel have been held up at gunpoint, and I have noticed that even the locals hide indoors after dark. Think I might follow suit there! Last night four guys were held up by some dodgy Mexican with a gun and half a roll of bog paper which has got to be reasonably unusual! At least they are concerned enough to carry supplies in case they scare their victims too much! I have also managed to upset one person so far, a French man, who insisted history is a lesson never learned. I felt obliged to disagree, pointing out that France did not attempt any sort of invasion across the channel last century….some people have no sense of humour! Ha ha! Well anyways, Im off to my next destination on Monday to explore the Yucatan. At least this flight is just a 90 minute job, and with a bit of luck I won´t have to sit next to a Pablo Escobar look a like this time, which is never nice!

  1. I suspect this post was about the time I started reading your blog. When did you publish the E-book about teaching English? I had been reading your blog for 3-4 years at that time.


    1. At best, my mum read this post. I doubt anyone else did. This was way back in 2003, the second post I ever wrote. The ebook came at the beginning of 2011. This post was my second ever blog post, when I backpacked around Mexico. Two years before I moved there. I created this blog using Adobe Dreamweaver and self hosted it. Updating it was a pain. I’d have to login to an FTP platform, download html files, edit them, reupload them…it was a lot of faffing about. It had no comments section.


    1. I suspect you probably tagged on in 2005/6. In autumn of 2005 I moved all my posts to a proper blogging platform, the now sadly defunct MyOpera. That’s when it really took off.

      But certainly it’s been a long ride.
