And rightly so! I'd always wanted to explore this part of America and finally ventured down there 2 years ago. Mexico City truly is one of America's great cities and one of its most fascinating. Keep the photos coming!
Thank you very much!

Isn't the whole 'Mexicans are American' debate just because people from everywhere south of the Mexico-US border want to be associated with the rich US? You never hear Canadians calling themselves American

America, are lands in the Western hemisphere, also known as the New World. In English, the plural form the Americas is often used to refer to the landmasses of North America and South America with their associated islands and regions while the singular form America is primarily used to refer to the United States of America.

But the term American whilst it could mean someone from The Americas only really means people from the US, or those wanted to be associated with the US

United States of...America = American not United Statesian

officially the term 'American' means citizen of the USA. Unofficially 'American' means south or central American citizen wanting to be associated with the rich USA...sorry, but true

it doesn't have anything to do with a wannabe. In Spanish, as in most of languages, America = The Americas, and that causes a lot of confusion, that's all.

Not all anglophones! Some of us realize that 'America' to mean the US is a colloquial expression while America to mean the continent is historically correct. Notice my location: it used to say Canada, but I changed it to say United Provinces of America.
