Its easy to mix up Roma and Condesa for me since I lived at the Casa De La Condesa Hotel and that hotel was located in Roma.

One thing I remember about Mexico City are those green VW Taxi's circulating the entire city. Now when I see pix of Mex City I see some other horrible two tone taxi's instead, what happened to the beetle's????

They are still there. But brown ones are just as common now. Like the one that can be seen in one of the pics from Coyoacan.

I know, I've seen them and they are extremely horrible looking. Those two tones are an eye soar vs the green more common Taxi soon to be extinct!

Mexico City is one of those cities that truly merits being explored (and which I would definitely do if it didn't have the safety reputation it has). It looks so rich and culture and life and there is so much of it, too.

The tour continues.


I highy recommend the skyview restarant at the World Trade Center. The food is good but the view is even better. (on smog free days of course). And its even nicer since the whole place slowly spinns so you never need feel aftaid you miss some good view on the other side.




The view from the restaurant. A 360° view. This is looking north.




And looking south.




Time to take the metrobus south along avenue Insurguentes.




And pass the university.




And then continue to what could be Mexico cities floating market. Xorchimilco.




Charming boats there. A little bit like Venice style.

I survived. The reputation is way overexaggerating.

It's so sad Mexico City remains with that bad reputation. It will take years to make people know that it is not neither the most dangerous nor the most polluted.

Ha ha ha... If you hadn't mentioned it, I'd have thought it was how the building actually looked. BTW isn't amazing that in spite of all the bad info said about this city, it remains by far the most visited capital in Latin America???

Go to the city for a general visit, yes, but explore every corner as I'd prefer to do, no.

Well if you survived then I should too now that I think about it! I mean if you look like a typical Swede I know you stand out like a sore thumb in Mexico City If you would stand out in Madrid or Rome you definitely would stand out in MC.

As in every city. In Paris I wouldn't wander alone at the neighbourhood in the north-east like the surroundings of Stade de France.

Or in NYC I'd never walk alone in Queens or the Bronx.
