Heading to Mexico City and Zoe!!September 29, 2017 in Mexico
I had my first sleep in for awhile, till 8:30am! I got a takeaway coffee and sat in the main square. I ate a yummy breakfast at Bella Vista of scrambled eggs and fruit while looking at the view of the mountains. I caught a shuttle bus at 11am to Guatemala City airport and flew to Mexico City where I met Zoe!! Yay!
We got an Uber to near where we were staying but couldn’t get any closer as there was many roads blocked off due to the earthquake. Our driver showed us places where buildings had collapsed. It was a little worrying walking along the streets blocked off and when we turned into our street, we saw the army set up and our hostel looked very shut. We rang the door and after a while we were let in. They had just reopened the hostel after the earthquake and we were the first new people to check in. He said the building we were in was 90 years old and had survived the three major earthquakes since then. The hostel was very old but we had our own room. We headed out nearby and found a Mexican restaurant where I had a really delicious fish taco, chicken taco, corn and salad. We had some beers before heading back to sleep.Read more
