Lee, who is 94, was very active during the three-day event.

He was received like a superhero himself and jokingly said he wants to move to Querétaro because nowhere had they received him as effusively.

"I have to move to this city, because nobody in Los Angeles gets so excited when I walk into a restaurant or walk down the street," he said.
