Miguel Romero – A Visit To Mexico City


From March 10th to the 17th, I visited my friend Miguel Romero in Mexico City. At the suggestion of our friend David Metcalfe, we decided to conduct a live show from the condo where we were staying. Most of the program was a travelogue of the city and surrounding areas, Mexican history, comparative religions, and food. We spoke on our visit to the massive basilica of the Virgin of Guadalupe, the patron saint of Mexico and a true goddess figure in her own right. We discussed the ease with which Mexicans accept both their Catholic/ Spanish history as well as harboring an infinite amount of pride in their indigenous heritage. We also attended a wrestling match (aka Lucha Libre) which is very different from the American version.

We recalled a possible near robbery which we experienced while on a canal touring the infamous “Island of the Dolls,” and the ignorant bliss that was present in the country at the time with regard to the growing pandemic. Miguel suggested that we should “embrace living in a state of eternal surrealism.” He summed up his country as “a place where the fantastic goes hand in hand with daily life.”

    Greg you are a solid and much appreciated thinker, especially in a paranormal field so hindered by wanting answers, like you i want to know what new questions to ask, not purley focused on finding the answers. Thank you for your work, and fresh points of view…..

      Thank you so much.

      I think understanding is more important than answers. Also, I have come to believe that those involved in this should know themselves thoroughly before they worry about the phenomenon, because the way you engage with this is intimately tied to your personality and how you approach things, your belief system, etc.

    Really interesting episode. Thanks to both of you. I find Mexican culture very interesting and would love to visit some day. Would love to hear more episodes of non-usual-topics if the opportunity presents itself

    You might enjoy the YouTube videos of “NormalMexicanGuy”, which I thought about as I listened to this excellent chat. He sends his drone over Mexico City and his videos are astoundingly scary (such a huge city!!! So many changes since I was last there in 1974…). I know enough about ancient Mexico that as you were chatting, I’d think of the answer — and Senor Romero would say exactly what I was thinking, so I am very impressed by him, and you, too, Greg!
