Home, Dortmund, Germany - 26th October 2011

By: La_Kate_Boheme

Mummy told me today that I'll travel to Mexico tomorrow!! Yaaay, that's awesome!! :) I think I'll spend the whole november there... Afterwards I'll be in Italy in december. I really can't wait to spend christmas time with my host!! :)

Well, mummy suprised me with some tickets for a DFB-Pokal match (German Football Association cup) of my favourite team, BVB Borussia Dortmund 09!! Borussia Dortmund is the german champion this year. Yesterdays rival was the SG Dynamo Dresden. The picture shows me with a ticket and my hosts muffler :)

http://i42.tinypic.com/29dzuxf.jpg

The game was great!! But the fans of Dynamo Dresden were awful!! They set things on fire, throw quarter sticks and pyrotechnic on the field, took smoke-bombs and stuff like that... Besides there were big fights, many people got hurt.. the police had so much to do that evening!! The game had to get cut off at least 3 times due riot and hooligans... :( I can't understand why hooligans have to destroy everything..
However, the game was great, we sat in the second row and my favourite football player of all time, the lovely Mario Götze, was less than 10 meters away from me!!
That was such a nice suprise of you, mummy!! I really enjoyed it.
This is me at the stadium, the "Signal Iduna Park", during the game:

So, now I'm tired and I have to prepare for the big day tomorrow.
Lots of Love,
Barry

http://i42.tinypic.com/2lj0vwx.jpg

Afterwards, I said goodbye to my dearest friends. On one side I'm sad to leave them but then again I'm soo looking forward to something new. I really can't wait!!

Mexico city, Mexico - 14th November 2011

By: heynizajude

Hello mummy!
I'm so happy! Today we got to walk through Mexico city for the first time, it was awesome!
The weather was warm however it was a bit cloudy, Niza says it was better because that way we could walk a lot! also we were lucky there was not many people so we could take a lot of nice pictures!
Today we walked around the centre and it was so much fun

Our day started down in the subway
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba1.jpg

The latin american tower
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba2.jpg

A monument that was a gift from Germany!
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba3.jpg
On the back it says: to the mexican people from the german community, september 17 1921
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba4.jpg

Right under the latin american tower, Niza says we will get to see the city from the top soon!
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba7.jpg

One of the streets of the centre
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba8.jpg

A really nice building
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba9.jpg

Then we went to the Zócalo (or the main square) we couldn't really see the flag because it was hold like that in signal of respect to the secretary of government that died last week in a helicopter accident
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba10.jpg

This is Palacio nacional (or the main government offices)
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba11.jpg

This is the cathedral
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba12.jpg

El templo mayor (some aztec ruins that are believed to be the centre of the aztec empire) Niza says we can go through the excavations however Mondays all the museums are closed so we will have to do that another time
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba14.jpg

This is a model of Tenochtitlán (Mexico city in the aztec times)
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba15.jpg

The statue of the founders, the legend says the aztecs were told by their god to found their city where they saw an eagle over a cactus eating a snake, so this scene is represented in this statue
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba16.jpg

The portals of one of the buildings next to the Zócalo
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba17.jpg

Statues of some of the aztec emperors, Nezahualcoyotl, Izcoatl and Totoquihuatzin, that's some hard names!
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba19.jpg
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba20.jpg
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba21.jpg

The MUNAL (national museum of art)
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba18.jpg

After looking at all this amazing places we sat down for a snack, green tea & doritos :P
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba22.jpg

And that was all for today, now you can see how exciting everything was! After all the walking we came home to rest and call it a day (:

When we came home for lunch we found a good surprise, another two toyvoyagers that are also from Germany! they are Sansibar and Lou
Niza lent us her Spanish-German dictionary so we can learn some español, maybe when I come back I can teach you some!

Mexico city, Mexico - 23rd November 2011

By: heynizajude

Hi mummy!
Today we went around the city again and here's what we did:

Niza said I already have a picture here but since the weather was better and the fountain water went higher I could have a better pic so here's me at the Alameda central
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba31.jpg

We passed by the fountain of abundance that is outside of the national lottery building
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba32.jpg

Since 20 of november is the anniversary of mexican revolution and this sunday it was extra special because it was the 100 anniversary of the ending of it we went to the monument to the mexican revolution!
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba33.jpg
We were supposed to go up but when we got there Niza realized she forgot her student card so we couldn't go up ): however she promissed friday we will!

Here's the street towards the square of the republic (where the monument is) you can see the mexican flags (:
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba34.jpg

This is the sculpture of "el caballito" or the little horse which is modern, the side view is better but since they're doing work on the street we couldn't stand there to take pictures
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/ba35.jpg

When we arrived home we found another german tv! her name is Entchen
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/en2.jpg

I can't wait for friday!
Kisses
Barry
