As some of you may remember, a couple of weeks ago there was the so-called World Cup, a little tournament in an obscure niche sport known as soccer that came and went without many people taking notice. But not in Mexico, oh no. Lucky for us, we had the chance to watch game after game at our favorite local bar, the Fritz. Alex became an avid Mexico supporter after their matchup with Brazil, and then an equally avid Netherlands hater after Robben’s shameful antics that bumped Mexico from the tournament. Tom was a Germany fan all the way, and that worked out pretty well for him.
To get our readers in the mood, here’s the Mexican national soccer anthem (as we know it). This nifty bit of Corona advertising played during every single commercial break, sometimes twice in a row. Soon enough, we were wholeheartedly singing along. We hope that you will be too.
Guard Dogs and Sea Dogs
If there’s one kind of animal that we’ve encountered over and over during our trip and especially in Mexico, it’s got to be dogs. Some of them friendly, some of them savage and other’s popping up in places you wouldn’t expect them.
Bits and Pieces
Everything that we were unable to neatly categorize ended up here. We spent many an afternoon wandering the streets of La Paz trying to accomplish things that were never actually accomplished, such as trying to find a bike store, or that really good restaurant that we heard about. Along the way, we stumbled across a few interesting corners of the city.
