Now out of the USA, one can feel slightly relaxed about the diet issue (not too relaxed); So - have I lost weight? Well.... I can say I have not put on weight. Clothes & pants the same - the scales in Mexico indicate I have NOT put on weight, but the real truth will occur on the weigh in at head office (and home).
I indulged in the THE most delicious - Taco - completely different to what I have ever had - rolled like a cannelloni and stuffed with shredded roast chicken with; minced avocado, very finely sliced lettuce, an amazing bean sauce and.... feta cheese. Taco's will never be the same.
Today I took a quick tour of Mexico City. It is Sunday, so naturally I went to two churches (catholic of course) - the first San Augustine Palanco. To enter the church and hear the piped organ and choir singing would have and affect on an atheist.
A quick trip to central Mexico City revealed (on a Sunday morning) revealed a history that, as an Aussie, is difficult to comprehend. It is quite and easy to move around (see later) When you look carefully at the following photo's you will notice that some buildings (their walls) appear to be leaning; It's a common phenomenon in this city, where many buildings are sinking, as each year Mexico City's 23 million thirsty residents suck up water from the aquifer beneath one of the world's largest metropolises. As the water level in the aquifer drops, the ground above it sinks (unevenly) which means in some parts of the city, sidewalks buckle, window frames lean, subway lines need expensive repairs and drainage canals no longer flow downhill!
