There is an enormous number of Mexicans in México City. I thought it was the third largest city in the world. México City apparently edged out Mumbai, India, behind my back at some point and now holds second place with 18,131,000 people.
In any event, I am a believer now. México City is an incredible place. Overwhelming. It is most assuredly not just another big city.
Here we look out the door of the National Palace onto the Zócalo, the enormous main plaza.
