I took a detour from the Ciclothon route today and had a long ride around Chapultepec Park. It’s a large park, by Mexico City standards, and is home to a boating lake, a castle, a zoo, and plenty of open spaces and woodland. It’s a nice destination for a relaxing Sunday, at any time of the year, but especially when there is a celebration of some sort coming up.
I took a video of various scenes and landscapes around the park, and thanks to the sudden chill that has hit the city – grey skies and plummeting temperatures, it almost felt like a UK Christmas. I know that at the moment thos in the UK and east US won’t be impressed by what I term to be chilly, given the heavy snows that they have gotten. But still.
