Denice was able to take me to the Coach USA bus station where I caught the ride to Chicago’s O’Hare Field. The bus was a little late going out because it had been delayed by Chicago traffic on its first run and there was a threat of a back up reported by radio caused by a car fire near the Edens exit. That proved to be a non-issue and I was able to get to the International terminal in plenty of time.

The rest of the day was spent around the historic Zocolo area of Mexico City. We visited the Palacio Nacional where we say our first Diego Rivera murals.
As we left this museum, we stumbled onto the actual Alebrijes parade. The route was really crowded so we could not see the floats on the street.
On to the Palacio de Bellas Arte to eat lunch. The lunch was a very elegant affair but I ended up eating a hamburger because the menu was in Spanish and I did not ask for help. I probably should have been more adventurous.
The group has supper this night at a very cool restaurant called the El Balcon del Zocalo which does overlook the big square. I had goat for supper, something I have never had. Then it was back to the hotel and in my room by 10:00 p.m.
