The Ravishing Renaissance of Mexico City
When I mentioned to friends I was visiting Mexico City, I was told to not drink the water, to not get kidnapped, and to be careful with the pollution. I was told these things repeatedly by almost everyone... almost everyone who had never visited Mexico City.
Well, I am happy to report that I did not get sick once on my trip, I was not the victim of any crime, and my lungs do not struggle any more during physical exercise than they did prior to my visit.
Big and gritty and complex and glamorous, Mexico City defies categorization. El Distrito Federal or DF, as the city is commonly called, is far more nuanced than many of the country’s famous resort towns, where the tourism bubble stays easily intact.
