After a short 3 hour flight from LAX, I arrived in Guadalajara. I timed it well, Mexico were playing Honduras for a place in the World Cup. At least, I think it was related to the World Cup! We collected a Venezuelian friend of Pepe’s, dropped my bags, and straight to La Diablita Cantina.
Alas, Mexico lost 0-1 to Honduras. The defeat was taken in remarkably good spirits by the Mexicans. Apparently the local team lost just a few days ago, so perhaps they were emotionally prepared.
I left my camera at home, but I grabbed this (rather poor quality) snap from my phone. It was a great welcome to Mexico, a perfect first night.
Now I’m searching for an apartment in Guadalajara. Any tips / suggestions / pointers / etc would be greatly appreciated.
