on the move

It's time for a change! I've redone my main site and have migrated this photoblog over there. It'll be nice to have everything under one virtual roof.


Come with me over to LIMPIRE and together we shall take over the world.

into the rabbit hole

After Mexico, we went to meet my family in Cuba.


This photo was taken outside of Trinidad, near the top of this tower used as a lookout point.

Mexico City is in a valley--a large valley. Just southeast of the city is the second largest peak in Mexico--an active volcano called Popocatepetl. Here it is topped with snow, even though Mexico City is a balmy 75 degrees during the day.

Getting around

I was pretty shocked to see that Mexico DF has a bicycle-sharing program. It's just such a large, congested, and sort of frightening city that I can't imagine anyone biking around it. The EcoBici program is almost a year old and only in select (re:posh) areas of the city. I didn't really see anyone using them, except for on Sunday on the car-free avenues as recreational vehicles.


The city is also in the midst of installing miles of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) with dedicated lanes. I suppose if you're the largest city in the Americas, you need to be doing this sort of stuff.
