If you follow soccer, you might be aware of the game. Galaxy-Morelia. It's a pretty big deal (obviously since I'm headed down for it).
So yeah, it's gonna be great. Some friends/fellow writers are going and it's going to be an epic time, hopefully.
I've been to Morelia once before, in 2002 when my wife and I lived in Mexico briefly. We really enjoyed the city and I'm anxious to go back. Unfortunately, the crime has worsened substantially in Mexico since 2002 and even since 2006, when we took a family trip down there. I've been back, in 2009 to cover US-Mexico in Mexico City, and that was relatively safe. I should be okay.
Not sure what the area is like around our hotel but I might just stick to running in the hotel gym for the two days I'm down there. We'll see.
Anyway, just wanted to give you a heads up in case you don't hear from me for a couple of days. Who knows, I may chime in from Mexico with a post about how awesome my run was in Morelia, or how a treadmill in Mexico gives you as many
