Message:  Mostly I forget days, sad and bright!

In september 2001 I reach 50.
Saturday before 9/11 we celebrate my day with a "big" party here in Hilleroed.

I am NOT 100% shure, but we flew to Mexico, Mexico City around Monday 9/9-10.
Think maybe 9/11 was a Tuesday?

That sad day we was early awake and we walk down to eat some breakfast.
There was a tv running and on the screen I saw a tower in flames.
I am today NOT 100% SHURE, if this was a film or... (don`t think!)
BUT only saw ONE tower, at this time.

NO one told anything, hotel, guide and language was mexican, spanish.
NO info told in english.

First that day, 3-4 hour after, what happend in New York City and other places, we was inform.
We was on a bus trip that day to a pyramid, not so far from Mexico City.

We was total in Mexico 14 days and first week was a bus round trip, last week we was in Puerto Valarta.
Some of our travelling-companions from Denmark, other parts of our country, first reach us many days later.

For me it was as SOME Mexican people, not was so fun of US of A.
Almost NO tv stations send info in english - only first day.
