Eggs price is going UP

The price of eggs is now above 20 pesos, sometimes 35 pesos in Mexico city.
This is due to the H7N3 flu, but also, as far as I understood, some speculation.

Mexican time

Severe bug in display.


The Bicycles of Mexico

They are called Velib in Paris, EcoBICI in Mexico. They have small wheels, but are much prettier than the French ones. Check them out at

EcoBICI zoo.

Building, House, Architecture, Tetris

The buildings in Mexico City are really great. It's hard for me to understand architecture, but I like the modern Mexican style.

Tetris like building

Mexican Graffiti

In every city walls have something to say.

How much to see a physician ?

I guess the first line is the minimum then you might add one or many options, eg. 15 pesos (about 1 dollars US) if you want to know what your blood pressure is. This picture was taken in a mall, next to a pharmacy.

The arena

I can see the arena from my windows, they are the largest ones in the world. Not everybody likes tauromachy, hence the tag La sangre (the blood) next to one of the gates.

I tried to enter the arena, but as soon as cross the open gates, 2 cops came toward me. I don't speak Spanish, they don't speak anything but Spanish. They were thinking that I was Spanish, no, I'm French I said. They were surprised I was alone, so I told them I was staying nearby and was just walking around. Nothing happened more than that, they told me to come Sunday at 4pm to watch the bullfighting. I said okay and left. I didn't go see any bullfighting.

Outside the arena, tag on the wall, the blood.

France is never very far

4 metro stops from my place (in Paris) and you are at Montparnasse Bienvenüe. 1 block from where I stay in Mexico city, this pâtisserie.
