Everyone is wearing, coats, scarves, and gloves right now. Believe it or not, I have been wearing a sweatshirt every day, it is COLD every morn and right now, maybe 65 degree, very chilly. The weather difference is AMAZING, mention the word Mexico and people think HOT right, wrong. The high altitude here is AMAZING, you feel it in your lungs, but when I arrived July 31st, top temp was 80 degrees F! Believe it or not the altitude has been different from what I expected, VERY cool the whole time.
Cars are a hassle here, so much easier to get around in Mexico city without, and not hard at all.
There are some very good vegetarian restaurants as I thought there would not be, and they are VERY delicious!
I have seen danger by others is in how you carry yourself here. Look people in the eye and let others know you are not going to be manhandled, it carries a long way.
Spicy is the norm here, and after awhile, you do get used to it.
No heating units here at all, I am curious to see what winter will bring.
Most taxis are VW’s (tons of them here), and Nissan’s. VW’s are so numerous here, amazing.
There is no right of way for pedestrians here, forget that idea, lol.
Hmmm, I am sure there are more, compadres from Mexico, what am I forgetting?
