Mexico City

I finally got around to pulling my pictures from the last few months off of my camera. These photos were taken in Mexico City in January. I absolutely fell in love with Mexico City! It’s got everything you would want from a gigantic city – amazing restaurants, interesting neighborhoods, friendly people, beautiful architecture, and great nightlife. I’m sure I’ll be heading back soon.

Overlooking the Catedral Metropolitana from the Zócalo in the heart of Mexico City.
Ice skaters testing out their skills in 65-degree weather on a rink in the Zócalo.
Shoppers walking on Calle Madero with the Torre Latinoamericana skyscraper in the distance.
Overlooking the Palacio de Bellas Artes from Cafe Don Porfirio.
A local man selling ice cream and ice pops in Alameda Central, the oldest park in Mexico City.
Children running through a fountain in front of the Monumento a la Revolución.
Bikers and skaters cruising down Paseo de la Reforma with skyscrapers and El Ángel de la Independencia in the distance. The street is closed down to traffic and open to pedestrians every Sunday.
Owners of a concession stand in Chapultepec Park near the Mexico City Zoo look at their prices in shock. Even they can’t believe the discounts.
The exterior of Museo Soumaya in the posh Polonco neighborhood. The museum was built by Carlos Slim, the richest person in Mexico and the third richest person in the world.

Chichen Itza

I had a chance to visit Chichen Itza last week while I was traveling in the Yucatan Penisula of Mexico with co-workers. Chichen Itza is one of the ‘New 7 Wonders of the World’ and I can see why. When traveling, I’ve come across a lot of ancient temples and archeological sites but Chitzen Itza definitely stands out.

WordCamp US is the largest WordCamp in North America but there are WordCamps all over the world, year-around so you can likely find one near you. Here’s the calendar of upcoming WordCamps:
