Chris and I were both excited to go to Mexico City after learning that the New York Times named it the #1 place to visit in its “52 Places to Go in 2016.” We knew that we planned to visit Mexico en route to Cuba, our final destination on our RTW trip, but prior to visiting I did not know much about this capital city that is home to over 20 million people in its metropolitan area. But, alas, due to our tight travel schedule we were only afforded two full days in Mexico City. That short amount of time, coupled with our need to spend meaningful stretches in front of our computers as we prepare to “go dark” in wifi-sparse Cuba, meant there was little time for sightseeing. With the little time we did have, we used it wisely. And by wisely I mean we went to one of the best mezcal bars in the city and spent time trying to reenact the opening scene from Spectre. Needless to say, that’s why this post is succinct.
We definitely wish we had more time to explore this intriguing city, and, of course, sample more of its delicious cuisine and cocktails. Stay tuned since the next posts (once we find internet again) on our ten nights in Cuba should be good ones.
