Mexico City… you charmer you. Who knew? I suppose your 9.2 million residents know. I certainly didn’t.
I had the pleasure of making your acquaintance for two weeks, but you had me wishing I booked two months with you.
You wear tree-lined streets, beautiful parks, culture, and art like jewelry.
You hustle… without being overly chaotic. Despite being one of the largest cities in the world, there was a sense of calm as I explored your streets. Your green spaces throughout are truly impressive.
You graciously offered me efficient public transportation, bike and scooter rentals, and free wifi wherever I ventured.
Your street food game is on point, with an abundance, variety, and quality that rivals all of the towns I visited in Mexico thus far. Yet, you can dress up and fine dine with the best of them. This, combined with your many sidewalk and street-side dining options, always kept me satisfied.
Our time together was limited and I was only able to enjoy a small part of you. However, roaming the Colonias of Cuauhtémoc, Juarez, Roma Norte and La Condesa… the massive Chapultepec park, as well as the smaller but beautiful Parque Espana and Parque Mexico was enough for now. Enough to realize I need to return and explore all that you have to offer.
