Mexico City / Chilangolandia Part 1

Mexico City / Chilangolandia Part 1

Fer and I were lucky enough to be able to take a long weekend recently and visit the big and beautiful Mexico City. People from Mexico City are known as Chilangos, hence Chilangolandia.  We covered as much as we could in 4 days.  My thoughts on Mexico city are that it is clean, large, and very different from Cancun!  There is also a noticeable gap between rich people and poor people.  We were approached frequently for money by beggars.  It has a plethora of culture and history which I loved, and the climate was perfect. No humidity in Mexico City! On our first day we arrived in the morning so that we could have the whole day to see stuff.  We dropped our suitcases at our hotel, Hotel Imperial Reforma, a beautiful place right in the heart of the city.
