    Dear fellows:

    I want to tell my point of view, i think it´s great for a mexican have their own ice skating ring in the middle of the city for free, specially if we are talking that Mexico has not natural snowing in the middle of the city, except some snowings at the ring of mountains that suround them, and some extict glaciars in the two big volcanoes no more than 60 mille away, they are one of the tallest points on the sea level in north america.

    Maybe they have problems and security issues now, just like all countries i think, but the most important think, human been it´s free to explore more ways to be happy, that´s valuable.

    Regards everyone.
