Mexico was awesome! We were so lucky to get invited to speak at OFFF Mexico this year and used that opportunity to explore the country just a bit. Mexico City was the first stop. I didn't spent much time there, just three days during the OFFF conference, and unfortunately didn't manage to see a lot. But had a walk in downtown, hang out in Roma, visited Frida Kahlo house and walked in Coyoakan. The fourth day a whole gang of us went to see Teotihuacán pyramids, but about that in the next post.
Mexico City was super nice! I don't know why, but I expected a city where it is impossible to walk around and you only spend time sitting in a car. I mean, you need a car to get around, the city is just massive (!) the population is nearly 22 mil, but it is totally walkable with a lot of places to see and things to do.
Another surprising thing is the altitude. I didn't know, but Mexico city is 2,240 m above sea level. I got to know about that after meeting some people who just arrived and felt a bit under the weather. All were talking about altitude. I checked online and shit! that's quite high up. Not like people who live in Himalayas of course or in Cusco, Peru, but still.
Oh, and by the way, I tried actual Mexican food and it is amazing. Not that TexMex crap you get in the US.
