Viva Ciudad de Mexico!

by IrinaNL

Mexico City left lots of impressions -partially due to the vibes of the city, partially due to the people I met.

Traffic and the driving style can compete with Moscow in its politeness, slowness and consideration. The Paris acclaimed maniac-like way of to driving is not even close-

Being driven by a typical macho Mexican -even I had to plead" suavemente" at times!

The area I was staying is Polanco ? it is the most trendy and cool area with numerous boutiques, upscale restaurants, designer shops and fashionable lounges.

Mazaryk street is Mexican equivalent of New York's 5th avenue. it is a sheer joy to walk, and on top of that imagine the weather is sunny and warm and the streets are filled with beautiful people.

Naturally, one will think of me as a shallow person if the above was the only impressions I got from the Ciudad de Mexico. Obviously, the side of life in the Polanco area does not represent the way and style the majority of population is living- but then again I am aware of that- as well as contamination and pollution in the city. The statement that Mexico is the most dangerous city in the world has its grounds in nature. Luckily, I did not witness any of those grounds and again it probably does not apply to Polanco- you may say it is just one area of the city - but, listen, this area is probably bigger then Amsterdam in its size and population- so no need to bother leaving it ? it can offer the excitement to meet all the needs. Plus I am motivated by a logo"" let's look at the bright side of things"

And again the favorite part of "shallow" me looking for joy and excitement is nightlife which is by all means worth mentioning in Mexico.

Surprisingly and totally unexpectedly the class and style of the spots I?ve been to are absolutely fabulous.

The hottest bar is W-bar in the W- hotel - extremely nice crowd and ambiance - see the pic

Among the open air trendy places is the roof terrace on the top of ?Habitat? hotel where they show videos on the screen opposite to the building ?

Another place is the Moon bar in the Camida Real Hotel -see the picture -total ultra lounge! Sky bar in the deemed blue light is a nice spot to chill out having a drink or two. For the night life - the coolest club is Shine: lots of pictures were taken there. Luv and Petra are the alternative hip places to chill, dance and club.

Just to put some dining places on the list "Aguila y Sol" on Moliere street, Valentino on Mazaryk, Aqua- also on Mazaryk.

So much to see, so little time! This huge, sprawling city of +20 million is never ending! What an amazing place though! A great transit system. Wish I had more time there.

Distrito Federal - Ciudad de Mexico

"A proud city history!"

On one of many businesss trips to Mexico city during the 80s' and early 90s', I went here with co-employees to celebrate Mexican Independence day. I had no idea, a million Mexican nationals had the same idea! Imajine all those people, including 3 visiting "gringos", shouting "Viva Mexico" and you get the general idea. It was a moment to remember forever: a cool Sept. evening and President Portillo led the cheering. Needless to say, we also had one too many "Dos XX" cerbeza that night. I suppose, the celebration is repeated annually, so don't miss the fiesta!

Spanish Lessons - en la ciudad de Mexico

by czabransky

does anyone have any recommendations for a school and / or private lessons in spanish for Mexico City. I will be here for a few months and greatly want to take the opportunity to improve my spanish.

I am working / living in Santa Fe but plan to travel the city, so i am open to any location.

saludos,
Craig

You could start by checking the CELE (Centro de Estudio de Lenguas Extranjeras), or better yet the CEPE (Centro de Estudios Para Extranjeros), both inside the UNAM, there you will find at least some other foreigners with better tips. Another place to search is the Instituto Cervantez.
good luck

Check the earlier messages on this forum, I think we discussed Mixquic. it's in the south of the D.F., reachable by public transportation - maybe 1.5 hours from the Zocalo/Centro in the D.F.
