…before I die? Or just before I leave Mexico, perhaps. I really need to climb to the top of the Angel of Independence. Maybe I’ll get around to that this very Sunday. I have high hopes for the photographic opportunities the extra height would provide. Assuming the pollution isn’t too bad. I like heights, so another ‘must’ is to have dinner at Bellinis (I think that’s the name, from memory…), the revolving restaurant at the top of the World Trade Center on Insurgentes.
But more than either of those, but keeping in with the theme of heights, I want to take a ride over Teotihuacan in a hot air balloon. It’s only a couple of thousand pesos. I say only, because for a tourist, that isn’t too bad. For poor me, saving hard for my return trip to the UK already, it’s a couple of thousand pesos too much. So I haven’t been, and unless I have a financial turn of fortune, I may not get to go. But I haven’t given up hope yet…but until then I can only post someone else’s photos. The link to which I’ve lost, so I can’t offer credit, although I’ve shrunk the originals enough to be ‘fair use’. I think. If you have got the cash, the people you need to see about this are Volare.
