Our Impression of Mexico Megacity
When descending to Mexico City, a land at 2500m above sea level, we saw the city light from above, which was very very very beautiful. Too bad we didnâ€™t have camera ready. We wonâ€™t be seeing this beautiful sight again. Such glitters are unique to this city of 23 million!
We arrived at dawn in Mexico City. The immigration officer talked really fast, somehow I felt that the effort I made in learning Spanish has been futile.
When we took our luggage we found out that Noeâ€™s pack of diapers was torn up. But amazingly the officer returned the scattered diapers into the conveyor belt.
After clearing out the Douana we met Carlos Peralta! He is such a crazy gringo loco who is very skinny and eccentric. He told us a lot of story about when he was in Indonesia and traveling around the world learning arts, including glass blowing art. Carlos stayed with Indiâ€™s family in Jakarta from 1992 to 1993 and has kept his Indonesian lingo polished since then.
Everything was set by 10 am and we called taxi to go to the airport. Noe was really excited about going and he kept saying "wee wee wee", which means, airplane (and cars, and boats).
