Time to Go Home

My two weeks in Mexico City have flown by.  Tomorrow I return home.  I must be at the airport at 7:00 AM for my 9:00 flight.  

If you have been reading my posts you know that this trip has not been so much about sightseeing.  After all, I have been to Mexico City so many times that I have seen most of the sights.  (In spite of that I do always find someplace new.) 

My trip to Mexico City was more about spending time with Alejandro and his family, enjoying the sunshine, and savoring the food.  Because I rent an apartment rather than stay at a hotel, I am also able, during my brief sojourn, to feel as if I am a resident of the city instead of a tourist. 

Throughout my stay the weather has been warm and sunny.  But tonight it was pouring rain.  Perhaps the skies of Mexico City are crying because I am leaving.  Ha, ha!
 
It is time once again to say "hasta luego" to this monstrous , delightful, aggravating, fascinating city and return to Ohio.

  1. Bill, our friend Kim told me you were going to be in Mexico City, unfortunately I had a trip to Chiapas scheduled since last year and was unable to meet you this time -- I know it would have been great to spend some time chatting. Hopefully we can meet on your next visit, don't forget to keep me posted. The account of my Chiapas tour is in elbibis.blogspot.mx

    1. Hola, Tino. Yes, it would be great to have a chance to meet you sometime. So you switched your blog back to BlogSpot? I took a quick look at it, and I will have to go back and read all about your trip to Chiapas. I will also have to adjust my blog list so that your new posts appear here again.
      Saludos,
      Bill

  2. Hola Bill,

    As you leave, I arrive. It's Wednesday night and I just got back to my apartment. I brought an umbrella. Perhaps that's why it's raining? Everyone seems to be talking about the fact that it's too early to be rainy now.

    And I'm a little harrumphed as the weather was wonderful when I left -- in the upper 70's, sunny, and dry. I even bought several new short sleeved shirts in Boston for my return. And now this!

    I'm sorry my return home was so badly timed; hopefully we'll see each other again soon.

    Saludos y un fuerte abrazo,

    Kim G
    CDMX, México
    Where we are looking forward to resuming our chaotic life here.

    1. Hola Kim,
      Glad that you had a safe journey back to Mexico City. You probably missed it, but Alejandro told me that late yesterday afternoon it hailed so heavily that it looked like snow piled up on the cars.
      Hope that the weather patterns return to normal, and that you are able to enjoy your time in Mexico City to the fullest!
      Un fuerte abrazo,
      Bill
