My buddy suggested doing a trip to Mexico City few months ago. His friend and her family live here. At first, I was hesitant but since he speaks Spanish and we would be hanging out with locals, I agreed to go.
The flight was uneventful. First thing I noticed after getting out of the airport was the traffic and chaos driving. I'm not sure if the drivers are bad or the sheer amount of cars are to blame. Let's move on to some positive things.
Yesterday we went to Teotihuacan, an ancient city located 25 miles northeast of Mexico City. I'll write a more detailed post about the day trip and some road bumps along the way. Walking the site and climbing the pyramids was a wonderful experience.

Dinner was in the upscale district of Polanco. I tried Escamoles, a dish native to Central Mexico that was considered a delicacy by the Aztecs. You might ask what is it and the answer would be...ant eggs and larvae aka insect caviar! It tasted OK but the main dish, grilled octopus, was delicious.
Since I'm writing this on my phone, that's all for now.
