My parents decided to take a last minute trip to come visit me before the start of classes. It was wonderful spending the week with them and showing them around "my" city!
(Though I must say, I've been "playing" for the last month and a half between traveling, visiting home and now with their visit. Reality is going to hit hard with classes tomorrow!)
On their first full day we took the tour bus (turibus) to see an overview of the city. I had done the southern route and part of the central route during Jeff's visit, but I saw a few new things.

That night my friend Karen joined us for dinner. We enjoyed a meal in Coyoacan and then I introduced my parents to churros.
