You never know whom you’re going to meet in Mexico City. Here, we were minding our own business at the Aztec ruins off the Zócalo, when we were swamped by the Miss Universe pageant.
The contestants do these side trips to provide local color for the eventual show, but actually seemed to enjoy themselves this afternoon. Like everything else in this fabulous city, they made for a splashy and colorful entrance. Miss Japan won that year (2007), by the way, even without our intervention.
