Since we didn't want to drive with our motorhome we took today in the afternoon a bus to Mexico City and from there a night bus to Nuevo Laredo (1110 km, 16 hours). The picture shows the North Bus Terminal in Mexico City.

The last few days we had to solve a problem. When we entered Mexico we had a very easy immigration. I was very happy about. Later I found out that we don't have visas and TIP (Temporary Import Permission) for our motorhome. In the state of Sonora this is not a problem since this state likes to welcome foreigners and makes their immigration as easy as possible. We got the visas when we traveled by bus to San Diego at the border in Tijuana. Then I was informed that when we come to the next state, there will be like another border and we will get the TIP there. But we never found any such checkpoint or office. When we arrived in Mexico City we wanted to finally get the TIP. I asked the Swiss embassy for help and visited different offices in Mexico City (September 28). Nobody could help us. The advice was to travel back to the border to get the TIP there. Since our motorhome is illegally in Mexico we didn't want to drive ourselves.

Today we visited the historic center of Mexico City. From the RV Park we took the bus and the metro to get there and back. We needed about 2 hours for one way. The picture shows the Cathedral of Mexico City at the Plaza de la Constitución.

We stayed two days in the RV Park in Teotihuacan. I try to do some repairs at our motorhome. But I don't have the right tools. Therefore I need a lot of time to achieve what I want. The picture shows the church which is only about 100 meters away from the RV Park. We are here with another couple from Switzerland and one from South Africa.

Today we took the bus from Teotihuacan to Mexico City and from here the Metro to Coyoacan. Here we visited Franziska Geiser who is working here since more than a year. She was once a student of mine at the university and later a friend in the alumni association. She showed us around in the part of the town she is living in. On the main square, there was a group of people dancing. Maybe they celebrated the beginning of autumn.
