Arrived in Mexico City

Packed and ready to go.  My friend Doug pick up Margo and I with all our luggage which was wonderful.  We didn’t have to  call a taxi.  Arrived early to the bus station but unfortunately could not buy our return ticket for the 31st.

the bus ride was “Terminators” movie loud no individual headsets…yikes.  It was short only 3 hrs and 30 minutes from San Miguel.  Found a  porter quickly and a taxi very quickly and were off to condesa.  Since it was a holiday the traffic was minimal so we were at the apartment in 15 minutes which is normally 40 minutes with traffic.

We arrived to find the maid setting up  and cleaning so we left for comida.

 

We went around the corner to an Italian restaurant Trattoria Giavonni and were seated quickly.  We had delicous bread dipped in olive oil with freshly cut basil by the waiter.  First time I had seen that and it was delicous.  We arrive at 2:30 and when we were finished at 3:30 there was a line to get into the restaurant.

 

 

 

 

I had linguini with pesto sauce perfectly al dente.  And a cold cerveza.

 

 

Now back to the apartment to unpack.

 

More manana…
