I had a heart-stopping moment when I read the first part of this post: confirmed

I thought that following it would say: Letizia and Felipe are expecting their first child ...

How disapointing to discover that they were just taking a regular flight! :P

Apparently what he is signing--and then she signed--is a DVD of their wedding. Cute.

There&#39;s a dinner in their honor (Monday?) but I doubt it&#39;s a gala dinner--the entire visit is designed to be very low key, casual, and friendly.

I did read two nice anecdotes in an article about the start of their trip:

First: that apparently the mexican press is filled with commentary about how charming, friendly, pleasant and down-to-earth they are.

Second: a woman who spoke with Letizia today at the Spanish Casino said that when she mentioned something about the rain at the wedding, Letizia said, something to the effect that yes, it rained a lot, but "we looked upon it as a shower of blessings".

I think it&#39;s great that she wore a scarf and had a handbag that--from what I can tell-had a design that was a homage to her mexican hosts. This bag is splendid.

Back to the hotel at the end of the night: happy but tired?

A nice photo of the two couples walking--from yesterday

President Fox is known to be a devout Catholic--he apparently invited Felipe and letizia to attend mass with him today and worship the Virgen of Guadalupe--Mexico&#39;s patroness. They accepted and attended mass together, but I have not seen any photos.
