Mexico City A to Z

Mexico City A to Z

by Lexie Ierace, May 29, 2018

Mexico City is truly a metropolis of diversity and scale.
Green walkways readily accommodate millions of people, connecting all major civic infrastructure and points of interest. Each foci is surrounded by enormous promenades and freeways that feel like densely flowing rivers. And for each piece of infrastructure made for its 8.8 million inhabitants there is tiny jewel to be discovered as well. The city is filled with bountiful outdoor markets juxtaposed with contemporary couture.
One of the things I enjoyed most about Mexico City is its cultural diversity. My last day there I was astounded to stumble upon the local Chinatown and how much it really did feel like a side street in Xian. The food scene supported restaurants of every cuisine, and at Bazar Coyoacan I could easily find ingredients for making Vietnamese, Italian or Persian cuisine.
