Leaving Mexico was hard, leaving the sun and the food and the holiday behind. Flying out of Mexico City the view was unbelievable. Rows and rows of buildings as far as the eye could see. The sheer scale and impact of Mexico City was incredible.
It was a fantastic two weeks in which we discovered a small part of a country that was more diverse and complex than I had expected. It was nothing like the pre-conceived ideas that I had from films and news media which represent a small part of the culture and a part that is more or less invisible to the tourist. The food, pleasant cities and ancient ruins was a great place to have a break from New York City and get some much needed sun.
