bright lights and a sheet of ice

We landed in Mexico City last light, and were quite surprised to find the Zocalo (Mexico City’s main public plaza) completely full of people and awash in the glow of massive Christmas light displays. When we settled in at the nearby Hostel Mundo Joven Cathedral and joined the crowd, we found to our further surprise a large outdoor skating rink. We’re not homesick but it was odd to see something that seems so, well, Canadian!

  1. Looks beautiful. I hope this is the trip of the lifetime (so far!) for you both. Happy travels and adventures, Don and Deborah!
