Ciudad de México: Día de Muertos + F1 = Muy bueno

8 days, 7 nights, 6 dozen tacos, 5 mezcal tastings, 4 moles, 3 pulques bars, dos muses, uno F1 and a Checo in a pear tree.

Salud

Our Casa




























Chinatown








The Azteca - Leon beat Crul Azul 1-nil


















Views from the castle












The bread/baking was amazing.


F1 was incredible in 'the stadium'














Selema!




















[IMG][/IMG]







Hanky Panky speakeasy where you entered through a WC stall and walked out of a walk-in beer cooler.

This one




















My favourite modern tower








The Angel




You try carrying it...




Being in front of this was other worldly in feeling


























Bottoms up!














XLB








































Pulque pulque pulque!




































































A wee line to get into F1... 2hr wait, no cerveja






Someone tipped them off that we were coming






Gracias Mehico

You actually go behind the counter to 'the washroom' where a mop and toilet wall open. When you want to exit you walk up stairs and that fridge opens
