I'll admit it. I'm bored. Here are a few very random pictures from my visits to Mexico City after the TPR tour. In no particular order. Here we go!

Here I am with the guys who swing from the pole and play a flute and a drum. Culture!
photo 1 (1).JPG
We ate at this large food court near the zoo and the anthropology museum. Sadly, it was some of the worst food I've eaten in Mexico.

Seriously. Everywhere.
photo 1 (3).JPG
This is just a random city shot. I really love Mexico City.
photo 2 (1).JPG
Ohh...and this is where we ate said not-so-good-food a few pictures back.

Love this sign.

MY FAVORITE!!!!

We ate at this restaurant near the Zocalo that was once again, AMAZING. A tourist would not just randomly walk in here...we got a plate of meat that served 2 very comfortably for $90 ($6.95 USD).
photo 3 (1).JPG
This was at the Anthropology Museum. This may have been made by the first enthusiast ever ever.

There are lots of random stores, like this Sex Shop / Wedding Dress place.

We saw the Zocalo during the day. Here it is all creepy at night.
photo 4 (1).JPG
They had this mini city set up in the square, it was apparently a free driver training program. I would want to take this before driving in Mexico City...driving looks completely insane in that city.

A random food stand on Insurgentes.

Another creepy dark picture at the Zocalo.
photo 5 (1).JPG
Aaaaand another picture of the random driver training class. Here, you can even see they made a mini Angel to drive around!
photo 5 (2).JPG
Here is what the menu at Hooters looks like in Mexico City. The 'macho' wings are no joke.
photo 5.JPG
And I'll finish off with OMG AN ACTUAL THEME PARK PICTURE! This is Six Flags Mexico as you approach from the street. I did get a chance to say #adiosmedusa about a week before it gave its last rides. Medusa and Superman look really cool from outside the park.

Ok, that's it. Maybe I'll do a random photo upload again. Maybe I won't. I do promise to continue to cover Mexico as I visit it into 2014 (already have some trips planned!) PLEASE COMMENT. BECAUSE WHY NOT.

Your picture of the wedding dress/sex shop reminded me of all of the sex shops and porn cinemas we walked past on culture day. The best was when we saw the sign pointing to one down the street and we started to head in that direction. I can still remember everyone asking each other "Are we all going to a sex shop??" and then it was really a delicious restaurant. Good times. :)

As always, great report!

Mexico City is SO big there are places I've never seen before.

Hope you continue posting some photos from your trip. =)

It really is nice to see photos of this country! Never had an interest in visiting till the TPR trip reports started to come out. Looks like a really fun place to check out sometime!

Me neither, and I hadn't ever in my life, until the TPR Tour last March.
The tours really get you to some I-never-thought-I'd-ever-visit places.
Between the Asian countries and overseas in Europe tours... it's been great!
And now, Mexico! :smile:

I on the other hand have always had an interest...I love Mexican people, Mexican food, and Mexican culture that exists here in LA, so I had a hunch that I would love it. Still, based on it's reputation, I needed to find the right way to visit. The TPR trip was a no brainer for me. I was on a plane 2 months after the trip to visit again, and again 2 months after that!

The USA likes to think it's evil, and to be honest with you, I kinda want them to keep thinking that to a certain extent so that Mexico City and Guadalajara don't get overrun by USA tourists like the beach towns have!

Nonetheless, I hope my pictures and experiences have provided some insight to this awesome, often misunderstood (or under-understood maybe?) place.

You know, sometimes total random reports of pics are amazing!

I'm actually thinking about doing a few reports where I just lay out the pictures as they were taken, even if they don't quite make sense, just for the fun of it!

Thanks again for sharing!
