{48 hours in Mexico City}

Hi guys!
Thank you for all your 'get well' wishes. Luckily I'm feeling better, just stuck with a small cold. Once again, I'm sorry for my long absence, I'm trying to keep up with everytrhing. Below a travel post from my latest trip to Mexico city where I had 48 hours to spend and discover all the beautifull sights. 

Luckilly I had my dear colleague and friend Dewi to rely on, as she was my guide. We had a wonderfull time, did some cultural things, had some great food, bought some nice traditional things at the Cuidadela Crafts market and ofcourse found our way to the Zara, haha. However I managed to not buy or try anything!

As you know Mexico City is one of the largest cities in the world, actually the fifth! The most recent numbers of the population in the Mexico City metropolitan area lays around 21 million people! Can you believe it? The city lays on an altitude of 2.420 metres / 7.940 feet, which you notice quite well, you feel tired and kind of jet-lagged.
Well just look at the pictures, I hope you enjoy it!

  1. glad you're better now:)
    The picture of the altar is very impressive, and can't but admit the architecture is as beautiful as for instance in Western Europe.
