I Hate Travel Lists – So Here Is Mine

Part One

Mexico City, September 2019

I follow travel blogs and podcasts enough to know there is little originality in lists. 

For decades, I have wanted to visit Mexico City. Though I traveled several times to the Yucatan and along the west coast of Mexico, I never made it to the “big city.” I’ve had connecting flights at MEX, enough to realize its air quality ranked somewhere beneath LA in the best of times, or Beijing about any time. I had a week free this month, so I invited a friend to join me in a few day’s exploration.  

So, though I generally eschew travel lists, here are the things I loved, and a couple I disliked, about Mexico City.
