Ciclothon, Culture and Cafes

We hadn’t been along to the ciclothon since…well, it must be weeks and weeks now. The last time we went was before the Swine Flu outbreak anyway. We went later than planned, as usual, which was a bit unfortunate as Reforma had something special planned. A huge Culture Fair all along the road from the Angel to Chapultepec. The Vietnam stall sat snugly next to the US stall, athough distance was kept between the Israeli and Palestinian stalls. Sensible, perhaps.

A bit of a disappointment for the British ex-pats – the UK decided not to participate. Or weren’t invited. What have we done now? But we weren’t as disappointed as the Hungarians, who had a stall, but forgot to turn up. Still, there was a boxing ring available for people to vent their frustrations. And plenty of street performers to put a smile back on a miserable face.

But for me it was all about the ciclothon. It was nice to get back on my bike and pedalling again after such a long break. And photographing as well. You can see all my photos by clicking here.

    Hi! I went there too. I was really exited to see the Japanese stand and the Spanish stand, but was also disappointed of the British one; what happened? Anyways, just wanted to say how much I like your blog. I dunno why, but I like reading the opinions of people not native to Mexico, particularly the nice comments you make, lol. Your pictures are also very well taken, what camera do you use?


    • Hi Daia, welcome to my little patch of the web. I try to be nice most of the time, but I have the occasional gripe too!

      My camera is a Panasonic Lumix TZ5….nothing terribly special. Hoping to upgrade soon though. With a bit of luck. And a bit of money. 🙂
