The last two days of our trip in Mexico City were dedicated to the pyramids of Teotihuacan, celebrating two special anniversaries, and trying to fit in anything else we forgot. Sunday we left early in the morning and took the metro to a large bus station that has buses that go to and from Teotihuacan all day. Coming from Cancun where it is completely flat, seeing mountains and pyramids in Mexico City was just amazing.
Exploring one of the oldest and most mysterious civilizations in the world was awesome and I definitely recommend if you are traveling to Mexico City.
After a lot of walking and climbing we finished our long day at Teotihuacan and headed back to our hotel.
We rested for a good two hours and then we picked a romantic restaurant to celebrate two important anniversaries: two years of being together and my one year of sobriety. We dined at J&G Grill at the St. Regis Hotel in Paseo de Reforma. Fer and I took the time to reflect back on just how far we had come in two years of knowing each other and how incredibly lucky we both feel to have each other. It also marked the beginning of my 1 year of sobriety celebrations, and well, we all know how I feel about that! Dinner at J&G was intimate with delicious food, great service, and an amazing view of the city. I highly recommend it.
Monday was our last day in the city and we decided to head down to the Zocalo and spend more time walking around that area. I'm glad we had time to do this as I could take more pictures and see the sites up close and personal. We also got to venture into an architecture exhibit, explored the "centro"area known for its intense shopping and haggling, and even stumbled upon a book fair. Lastly, we ventured over to Ciudad de los deportes and saw the Plaza de Toros and the Cruz Azul soccer stadium. It was a great ending to a wonderful trip. That evening we headed back to Cancun.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Mexico City and I can't wait to go back one day and see even more. This big city shed a new light on Mexico for me. It's not all beaches and tourists, but also city life, history, culture, and of course amazing food. Have you been to Mexico City? What was your favorite thing? Let me know if the comments below!
