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!
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.
This is just a random city shot. I really love Mexico City.
Ohh...and this is where we ate said not-so-good-food a few pictures back.
Love this sign.
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).
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.
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.
Aaaaand another picture of the random driver training class. Here, you can even see they made a mini Angel to drive around!
Here is what the menu at Hooters looks like in Mexico City. The 'macho' wings are no joke.
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.

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!
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.
