Ciudad de Mexico - Part Three

went to the corner to get cafe de olla (sweet cinnamon coffee steeped in a clay pot) and saw everywhere had this yakult drinks that are Japanese yogurt drinks.

after being too caffeinated and confident despite being super hungover I said sure Kyle, lets go for a 6 mile run at a 7,300 foot elevation.  We ran down Paseo de la Reforma which the close off on Sundays I guess.  It was rough.
that famous Mexican coke, famous because its made with cane sugar and not high fructose syrup like in American Coke.
juice is a huge thing, it's available everywhere.
another similarity btwn Mexico and China, the parks are filled with peeps relaxing, dancing, etc.  A very familial society

the beautiful library

Not everyone went to Lucha Libre, mexican wrestling, and they really missed out.

like American wrestling there's a ridiculous backstory for every wrestler but in Mexico it's even crazier.  They wear masks and being unmasked is the worst and you have to do the rest of your career like that.  There are unmasked guys that are still popular.  So much crowd participation and yelling cheers and taunts and the wrestlers coming into the stands.  We were the second row back.  They take acrobatic wrestling to the next level.
even this grandma was getting super into it and dissing wrestlers.

Metallico putting his hat on her

El Fuego had sweet entrance dance moves, I ended up buying his mask.
after first round madness they carted one of the guys off  on a stretcher, the "doctor" was sitting in the front row.  Was it real? Was it fake?  We'll never know.
stacked ring girls.
Metallico talkin' shop with the "doctor"

Mysterio jumping from the top of the stage onto caveman dude.

Maximo Sexy was much beloved.  He's supposed to be the "gay" wrestler.  He would spin around like a ballerina and his thing is he tried to kiss the other wrestlers.  When they hit him he dramatically says por que?  The crowd would chant, Beso beso beso! (kiss kiss kiss).  Little kids were chanting this too.

more kinds of Mexican beer.  We ate a lot then ended up at an Irish pub in Roma.  We went home at just 1:30am this night.
