After Frederik and Mary's official program in Mexico ended the couple were spotted on a private excursion together to the pyramids before they returned home to Denmark.

this pictures are lovely. The Mexican pyramids are cetainly on my list of things to see.
I wonder when they visited them because their program was pretty packed. Maybe they didnt leave right away after their last day?

Yes, his pullover is this one, isn't it?

It's from a Danish brand called Wood Wood.

BB is wrapping up the visit to Mexico in this weeks issue.

Summary of coverage in Billed Bladet #47, 2013.
Eventyrlig aften - A night of fairy Tale.
Written by our Mexico correspondent Marianne Singer.

The Danish embassy had invited 400 guests to the former monastery Convento de San Hipolito, which stems from the 1600's and was renovated in 1999. Illuminated by countless candlelights the mood was special and here arrived M&F. Mary in a red sleeveless dress and Pradas on her feet.
The food was a mix of Danish and Mexican, created by the chefs Enrique Olivera and Paul Conningham.
The conferencier of the evening, John Paul Ospina, seems to have left our reporter decidedly week in her knees, he sure gets a lot of positive coverage!

Afterwards the Danish ambassador, Susanne Rumohr Hækkerup said: "One of the things that makes us special as a country and creates interest is that we have businesses which are very innovative. And another thing is that we have our royal family. When you combine these two things it gives a very good punch".

The Danish minister who accompanied M&F on their visit, Astrid Krag, wasn't there by accident. Astrid Kragh is Minister for Health and I wondered what on earth she was doing during a commercial offensive. But it turns out that she speaks Spanish and that she has stayed for some time i Latin America, including Mexico, some ten years ago.

As a part of Mary's focus on domestic violence she visited a shelter for women, run by the Diarq Foundation, and here she met and was charmed by the flower boy Calel.
His mother is among the women who came to the shelter and she did indeed give her son a big hug afterwards. - For a woman, who is likely to have her self esteem beaten out of her, litterally, this may have meant a lot.
Indeed the shelter has an interesting psycological approach to rebuilding the women. There were signs with negative remarks, say about how ugly or worthless you are. Words these women will have heard so often, contrasted with positive signs saying You are worth a lot or you are special.
Domestic violence is a very serious problem in Mexico and it takes place in almost half of the households.
The head of the Foundation, Sausana Franklin said to BB afterwards: "She was incredibly compassionate towards the five women she met here at the centre. We are really pleased with her visit".

There is also an interview with M&F, but I'll add that later.

thank you Muhler
Its nice to read about the growing relations with the two countries. And nice to read that Mary and Frederik are getting ready for a quieter December a time of "coziness". Frederik and Mary have traveled alot lately.

How exciting to read that there is a Mexican Restaurant in Copenhagen. I remember when I was traveling in Rome, how exciting it was for me to see a Mexican restaurant there.

And how cool that Mary had been to San Diego and cross over to Tijuana, as many do. Tijuana has/had a very lively downtown district where its basically one big party down the street. Clubs and great food.

I go to Tijuana quite often since I have family there. Right now it has become more safe and positive again. but a few years ago, since Tijuana is a border town used by the drug cartels to get drugs into the US it was not so safe. You could feel the tension in the atmosphere. Downtown Tijuana was a virtual ghost town. Shops and places (where Im sure Mary visited) where open but they remained locked. Once you got to a local store, for example, you had to knock to be let in. The store manager would unlock it while you went in but locked it as you were inside.

But back to the topic. Im glad Mary and Frederik got to taste some authentic mexican food, but Frederik is right. the "real" mexican food is outside with the street vendors. especially the Tijuana tacos

Thanks Muhler

And talking about Mary's backpack journey...

I remembered these pictures, does anyone know if it could be pictures from her journey?
