I’ll admit it – I’m fascinated by the huge volcano 40 kilometers from Mexico City airport, near Puebla. In this video, a father and son team climbed to the lip of the volcano to film it.

There’s a controversy over whether national monuments in Mexico City should be illuminated at night. Click on the link to the newspaper El Universal… I quite like the way they lit the Monument to the Revolution. It’s where I took the cover picture for this blog.
