Reflections on Mexico City

1) There are a whole lot more 7-11's then I remember. They've invaded. I never did find out what Slurpee is in Spanish.

2) Hell is eating in a restuarant with three people who's primary language is Spanish, with the only English in the restaurant coming over the sound system, where you have to listen to 45 straight minutes of The Cure. Now that's a way to kill an appetite.

3) When I first went there nearly five years ago, every building near the airport was painted with advertisements for Bardahl. That's been replaced by Holanda. Car care to ice cream...it's a more pleasant town already.

Slurpee is "la slurpee".
