    I'm going, and my husband (Publius, aka Jim).

    Bison and Victory are as well (although they're trouble makers, so we gotta watch out for them). :D

    Just a little more info on some of the side trip options:

    Pyramids at Teotihuacan http://archaeology.la.asu.edu/teo/

    Taxco, Mexico: http://www.otherroads.com/taxco.htm

    Cuernavaca, Mexico: http://victorian.fortunecity.com/pollock/89/english/pages/index1.htm

    We can also put together a Mexico City tour (we did that the last time).

    Contact Lisa and/or Paul for more specifics and prices.

    On the way back to the airport on Mon, you will make a stop at the Shrine of Guadalupe: http://nanotube.msu.edu/SMG.html


    ALSO NOTE THE SPA FEATURES IN THE HOTEL: If your spouse is not a big soccer fan, a day of beauty/massage might help your cause in getting to the game! ;)

    You people are crazy. I have worn a Yankees hat to Fenway, but there is no way I am stupid enough to wear the stars and stripes in Mexico. God bless all of you and I hope you are still alive so I can see you when Mexico comes stateside.

    K, Paul, Lisa (sorry if I missed someone) - thanks for making the effort and spending the time to set up this roadtrip. It sounds like a lot of fun!

    Unfortunately, I can't make it because of family obligations (Easter Bunny and all).

    Thanks again!

    Did it with this group in 2001 and survived :p

    Sorry I won't make it this time around, but for those thinking of going the organization last time around was top notch, Lisa in particular did an fantastic job. Azteca will be an amazing experience, both good and bad. And take heart, my not going automatically increases the US' chances of getting a result!

    See you in Utah in June.
