One, two , Mexico DF, Tepatitlan de Morelos in one short trip!

Now I am rested to finish Mexico to tell you all about it, and then out again Sunday for another wonderful trip, happy travels indeed ::)

As usual left from Nantes airport to Paris CDG and then Mexico DF Benito Juarez airport; staying at the nice City Express Plus Patio Universidad in DF. Here are the contacts : https://www.cityexpress.com/en/hotels-Mexico/MX/Distrito-Federal-14/Ciudad-de-Mexico-27/City-Express-Plus-Patio-Universidad-78/

The hotel was central at the corner of Universidad and Av. Popocatépetl in the shopping center Patio Universidad, it open in 2015 very nice with stores like Best Buy, The Home Store,  Steve Madden, Sports World, and groceries Superama. Also many restaurants like Starbucks, El Bajío, California Pizza Kitchen, PF Chang´s, Olive Garden, TGI Fridays, Carls Jr., and IHOP. open 9h to 22h;also a wonderful cinema Cinépolis. no webpage yet!

I did show up and went straight to El Bajio for my first dinner there, nice place if a bit hurry up to get rid of me lol! The lady kept giving me dishes to try and I keep saying no thank you have enough, endless, but the food and drinks were good, bohemia oscura beers ! http://www.restauranteelbajio.com.mx/sucursales_mapa.php?mapa=11

I did a lot of walking around to see old names like Walmart, Sears, and the Mexican dept store Liverpool,(chic), and had my rides thru Insurgentes Sur and into the State of Mexico outside DF in Ecatepec de Morelos. Of course ,my hotel had great views of the city of Mexico too. Driving around in Ecatepec  I had lunch at Los Bisquets de Obregon local cuisine restaurant with a great cecina steak (salted and dried by means of air, sun or smoke) with mashed potatoes, mexican rice, and mango/papaya juices here ! http://bisquetsobregon.com/restaurantes/ecatepec/

Next , after doing some walking around safe in DF! lol! I met some old friends at the Olive Garden in the Patio Universidad shopping;  here with ravioli stuff champignon and a great Trapiche malbec Argentinian wine, coffee nice, great memories ;http://www.olivegardenmexico.com.mx/ubicacionUniversidad.php

This allows me just before to go over the Plaza Universidad shopping center, http://plaza-universidad.com/ ; which later on hook up with another friend and after already having eaten we went over for some snacks and drinks at the Sanborns Inside. http://www.sanborns.com.mx/Paginas/directorio_tiendas.aspx

and following my culinary taste of Mexico DF on another night went for TGIFridays hahaha yes very original , I remember this resto from back in USA and love them. Found them here with a nice big burger and try Victoria and Pacifico beers !! This was ,also, in the Patio Universidad shopping! http://www.fridays.mx/tufridays.php?idres=6

Moving right alone as able to see the Métrobus system with elevated platforms running east-west and north-South in the city ,well the traffic is still BIG! Teatro Insurgentes was nice but no time to see a show; right in chic area by city center building in Insurgentes Sur.

And, I had time with another friend to see the Mexico vs El Salvador football.soccer match concacaf WC qualifying won easily by Mexico 3X0 at Hooters another of my old favorites ::) Great Indio beer and nachos snacks with cheese and the action was good with friendly crowd.  http://hooters.com.mx/sucursales/universidad/

And I took my plane to Guadalajara airport before had my lunch at Wimpy in DF airport; cant find webpage but was ok for an introduction before leaving. Guadalajara airport is small and nice ;https://www.aeropuertosgap.com.mx/en/guadalajara-3.html

And went over to Tepatitlan de Morelos a nice town country cozy feeling more on it here, in Spanish http://www.tepatitlan.gob.mx/turismo/

Here I stayed again in my usual Grand Hotel, with French owner and very nice, my room the Mexican Rangel, chic class and great service in city center near the main Church. http://www.grandhotelboutique.com/english/

Having breakfast in the Café Paris is grand and great views over the city. and we went out to Zapoten , nice town and had lunch on the road at Birreria Chololo with goat meat and beers Indio oscura. An institution in the area, they are at Carretera a Chapala Km 17, Tlajomulco de Zuñiga, no webpage but a nice page to describe it a bit further, https://es.foursquare.com/v/birrier%C3%ADa-el-chololo/4bf9560b8d30d13a8f010218
