Tidbits for travelers: danger at Mexico City airport; blue mustang at Denver airport


According to an Associated Press story, Mexico City is beefing up security at Mexico City International Airport ((International Airport Benito Juárez/MEX) after a series of armed robberies against travelers who exchanged money at the airport. 350 police officers have been added since December; now an additional 460 police officers will be assigned to patrol the airport and surrounding areas.

The story says that at least 18 people have been robbed recently outside the airport. They were apparently followed after doing business at the currency exchanges inside.

And Denver International Airport’s Blue Mustang sculpture is in the news.

According to this story from Monday’s New York Times:

A statue of a giant male horse – electric-eyed, cobalt blue and anatomically correct – was installed in February 2008 on the roadway approach to the terminal, and it is freaking more than a few people out.”

What do you think? Should they keep it, or send it out to pasture?
