Knowing that the journey to Mexico City was going to be long and painful is one thing but doing it is another thing! 3 boarding passes in hand we depart Melbourne…….and no more work for 5 weeks, wooo hoooo!
Arrived LAX, got stuck at customs for some time, got grilled about my trip and my job…..”and your work is ok to give you 5 weeks off?”, “how long you worked for them.”…..and we just transiting through!!!! 6 hours to kill at this airport…….walked through 7 different terminals, I am sure security would have been watching us, I mean who does a walking tour of airport terminals……bored people who have 6 hours to kill at one of the worst airports in the world!
Our flight to Mexico City had a stop over in Las Vegas…..slot machines at the arrival gate. Very cool airport to fly into, last time I was here I drove in, you literally are flying over desert, more desert, yep and more desert, then suddenly Vegas! The airport is right next to the end of the strip….had a great few as we took off…sorry didn't get a photo.
We also flow over the Grand Canyon on route to Mexico City, well the edge of it anyway…..last time I flew over the Grand Canyon, I had food poisoning and was sick for most of the scenic flight……this didn't make up more it, we too high.
So after over 30 hours of travel, only 2 hours sleep, and after having countless power naps we arrived in Mexico City, hola! Straight to our hotel, shower and much needed sleep!
