First it was the Urban Beach, now the Mayor of Mexico City is treating my paisanos to a true novelty: the world’s largest ice-rink has opened its doors right in the middle of the damn Zócalo!
And it’s no joke. The rink was inaugurated this weekend with a fiesta of laser beams accompanied by a group of professional Mexican ice skaters (where the hell did they come from?)…
It is all part of the Mayor’s plan to keep my people entertained in a Pan y Circo-type of fashion, if you know what I mean. I have put the Zócalo megapista in my list of must-see sites for my upcoming Christmas vacation in Mexico.
¡A patinar se ha dicho!
