In addition to the crazy street food culture, México City also has a healthy food truck scene. This past Sunday Dos Trotamundos and their salchichas checked out a Food Truck Bazaar in the Roma neighborhood. 10 trucks and a DJ took over a huge garage for the weekend, dishing up treats for those lucky enough to make the trip. The vendors were friendly, welcoming everyone who strolled by to their windows. If you're in the city, be sure to check Facebook and Twitter for the latest pop-up location. #vamoskigo #kigodrive #kigoleon
We set off for Asia on a bizarre flight plan that took us from México City to Tijuana to México City to Los Cabos to Shanghai to Macau. As you can imagine, this was a very long few days of travel that was made longer by a SUPER COLD overnight stay on the Tijuana airport floor. The initial discomforts were far outweighed by our excitement in watching the sun rise from a China-bound airplane and celebrating our arrival with delicious dumplings in the Shanghai airport. Hopping on our last leg to Macau we were moderately rested, stomachs full and ready to start exploring.
We wandered the city streets for two days, taking in the people, architecture, smells and food. One of our favorite finds was a series of outdoor exercise machines that were repeated throughout the city. The best part is that they weren’t for show. We saw numerous people using them as a part of their workout routines.
Macau was a good city to get our feet wet on our own. After a quick three days…..it’s VAMOS to Singapore!
Huasca de Ocampo is a town in the state of Hidalgo in central México. It is home to the Prismas Basálticos, majestic geometric basalt rock columns that line a ravine with waterfalls tumbling from above. What makes the pillars so spectacular is that each is an enormous hexagonal prism, some of them 150 feet tall and more than four feet wide. They were formed millions of years ago by slow cooling volcanic lava.
| THEY ARE TRULY SPECTACULAR AND WE HAD AN AWESOME DAY EXPLORING THE AREA.
We spent a day exploring Santa Maria, Tecajete, a rural area outside of México City. I sampled pure mountain water using a maguey leaf for a cup and Marco tested the crickets as we wandered through a tract of open farm land.
