The true dangers of Mexico City

I’m sure you’ve all heard the rumors– “it’s too scary to go to Mexico City; there are dangers lurking around every corner; blah, blah, blah.” Well, I suppose it’s time we confess the truth. We had a narrow escape this past weekend here in Mexico City.

John totally almost got eaten by an oversized chameleon.

This chameleon was clearly out for blood.

Luckily John managed to use his cat-like reflexes to escape.  Whew.

    Oversized? Are you sure? I heard that all of the animals in Mexico are huge! Even the ants are as big a cats!

      Am– Ha! :) I would say if anything, animals in general skew smaller here because their average is weighed down by all the chihuahuas and other kick dogs roaming the streets (in DF at least). But I will now keep an eye out for the cat-ants!!

      Jesus– Totally agree! I warn all our visitors to stop moving before looking at any of the beautiful scenery lest they snap an ankle on earthquake-riled sidewalks. :)

      Lesley– Noooo… he was totally into it?? 😉

  3. The only dangerous thing about Mexico City are the SIDEWALKS that have big holes are uneven and cracked. Careful when walking a friend of mine broke an arm when he fell.

    Love John’s expression. “Hurry up and take the damn photo, woman!”
