spontaneous trip to Mexico, crazy German needs a couch for tomorrow (August 30th)
Posted August 29th, 2011 - 8:32 pm by from Bremen, Germany (Permalink)
Hey there,

I'm Jonas, a 26 year old German. I am currently staying in Raleigh, North Carolina. Before I was doing an internship in Montreal for the past 2 months (working for a fair trade coffee importer), visited Boston and got out of New York City just before the Hurricane. At the moment I'm visiting my old host family I stayed with 8 years ago.
My host mom works for American Airlines and told me she could fly me anywhere for just the airport fees. Actually I just wanted to visit New England but now...sitting in the living room today I thought, hm, where could I go? California? ...pretty expensive...well my sister stayed in Mexico City for 4 months last year and she loved it...let's check it out...so I think this is the most spontaneously planned vacation I ever did!
So that's about the reason I'm coming, a little crazy and adventurous but hey, I'm good fun...
I really want to check out DF, eat it, smell it, hear it...but I don't really speak any Spanish (had it for one semester and sucked at it, but I thought it's time for another try..)...so I'd be grateful for anyone writing me little helpful notes in Spanish, tell me where to go (and where not to go), order me some bad-ass food and lots of drinks!
I'm planning to stay in Mexico for about a week, checking out the city and maybe some cool stuff around it.
It would really be amazing if you could host me any days during that time...and if not I'd also be up for a cup of coffee, a bottle of wine or beer combined with some great advice and a good conversation. So if you're up for a crazy, but very friendly and funny German(I know it's hard to believe)I'd love to talk some politics to you (it's what I study) and hear what's happening in Mexico (I know way too little of it)!
I know this request is really spontaneous, but so was my decision to come...
In case you can host me or have some good advise on some cheap hostels, and other great things to do, or want to hang out (being a German I don't think I'll ever say no to a cold beer, or more)...write me a private message and I'll get back to you a soon as possible!
hope for a reply soon...best,
Jonas

P.S.Hasta luego
