November 24, 2005:
After registration and get-together, we had a sparkling view of Mexico
City. That was the treat on the opening night of the 2005 Earthrounders
Meeting. Not from an aeroplane as you might think, but from the 51st floor
of the Torre Mayor, the tallest building in South America.
Earthrounders were welcomed to Mexico City by Jorge and Malu Cornish and
the Instituto de Turismo del Govierno del Districo Federal and by Aero

Blue skies over Mexico City at this time of the year.
In the Winter sunshine, Earthrounders and company visited the splendid
Chapultepec Castle and the breath taking Anthropology Museum before
adjourning for a late brunch at El Lago.
The Earthrounders Round Table kicked in that evening, with a buzzing
exchange of information gleaned from past circumnavigators and the constant
change of rules, regulations and Avgas supplies around the World.
November 25, 2005:
Teotihuacan, City of the Gods- our destination today just outside the city,
where the magnificent pyramids of the Sun and the Moon soar above the
Avenue of the Dead.
In the thin air (at 8,000 feet) and strong sunlight we scrambled 70 metres
up the pyramid before lunch in the chilly depths of a nearby cave.
Back in Mexico, another evening session raised more questions and tips on
flying around the World.
