After a tour of tamir’s hometown of Mexico City, the mariposaHD team returns to the beaches of Oaxaca to explore the sky, surf, and sand of Puerto Escondido with uriel, roman, and amanda.

segment 1: tenochtitlan

The Great Tenochtitlan was the capital of the Aztec empire. Founded in 1325, it was a cosmopolitan and multicultural city with advanced technology. The Aztecs dominated all of Mesoamerica until 1521 when Tenochtitlan fell to Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés. Today, after 683 years, the Great Tenochtitlan is still capital of the Aztec country, which is now called Mexico. tamir takes the Sony Z1 for a walk around this chaotic metropolis of 19,231,829 people for an HD look at real life on the streets of this huge city.

segment 2: aire

Back on the beaches of Puerto Escondido, we offer two beautiful Brazilian models a daring proposition: would one of them jump out of an airplane with our HD camera? eli chooses to take the plunge while juliana decides to wait down on the beach below. Safely strapped to an experienced instructor from Skydive Cuautla, eli gets the ride of her life while we get to feel what it is like to fly through the Pacific sky with a mariposa girl.
