We had to change subway lines twice, and got to our destination well before 2:00pm. We had prearranged a meeting spot for 2:30pm so we went for a walk around the area and sat in a park for a little while. Then went to our meeting spot, and sure enough Edith drove up to collect us.
Edith and her husband Fernando live in a suburb in the south east part of the city. They have two daughters in their early twenties. We got to their house, and Edith set about making some food. While she cooked, we got acquainted. Funny co-incidence, but they visited Las Vegas last year and stayed with one of the couchsurfers that we will be staying with!
They are doing some renovations to their house and asked if we wanted to go with them for a drive to look for a replacement light fixture, so we went for a tour of the area. We went to a type of market where every store and vendor there had something to do with home repairs. Who needs Home Depot?!!
Toilet seat, anyone?
We relaxed and chatted for the evening. Today we are off to Xochimilco because it is close to this end of the city.
