The Return to Mexico City

After a hard weekend of riding, camping, not showering, and exhausting my supply of clean laundry I wasn't especially looking forward to fighting with DF traffic. And then there is a question of what to do with the bike - the hostels downtown have no place to put it, and the KTM shop was closed by the time I returned.
