^That only added to the adventure for me. The only bummer that it caused is that I really wanted to go out that night and had several people on board. By the time the delay ended everybody was wiped out and changed their mind! I wish we had known at the time that we were only about a $6 USD cab ride from the hotel.

I finished up my visit to Mexico City by visiting some places I wanted to go. Being a theme park website, I will briefly revisit this part just so you can see, but I won't get too deep into it. There are no coasters or theme parks in this update, but stay tuned, I'm not done yet! Also, if you enjoy the sightseeing in Mexico City, please COMMENT AND LET ME KNOW. I have more to share and if enough people are interested I can show you some really neat spots, including a place with Miriachis on boats and a freakin castle.

^ Chris, there's a pretty good comemrcial (IMhO)film about Frida Kahlo,
called simply "Frida". released in 2002, with Salma Hayek in the title role.
And she was good! Also a passionate producer of it, she was.

Here's a link to more info about the movie...

Thanks again, Bill! She can also be found on the back of the $500 peso bank note. I like how it's not just presidents on their money :lmao:

Looks like you had an amazing trip. The fair looks great, too. Nice to see a Huss Enterprise and Mack Himalaya - fun fact that the latter stands in the Spanish section at Europa-Park under the name "La Feria". And next to that the rides look well-mantained.

^That's an excellent fun fact! I have always wanted to go to Europa and now I feel strangely closer to it :p

^The site I found is here, although it does not look like it's been updated for next year yet.

^^Thanks! I too am fascinated and would love to share some more pictures, just need to make sure some people here actually care! I figure it's a city we don't see too often here on TPR so perhaps there are more that are curious about this city that is so close to many of us yet so far away culturally.
