Mexico Volcanoes Team #3 Arrives in Mexico City

Hi Everyone,

Most folks have safely arrived in Mexico City, with the final two scheduled to land shortly. A few people were able to explore the central square in the historic city center this afternoon. We all met this evening and had a successful gear check in the courtyard of the Maria Cristina Hotel. For dinner, we walked down past the Angel of Independence statue to a corner restaurant serving some fine Mexican cuisine. We enjoyed 4 different kinds of mole sauce, a couple cervezas and even had a mariachi band stop by at the end of the meal. Folks are all back at the hotel now and looking forward to the adventures of tomorrow.

Thanks for following along!
