mexico city from an airplane window

Mexico City, where the smog makes the air smell like the city is on fire.
Where every meal – including breakfast – comes with a side of salsa and limes.
Where you have to take multiple steps to ensure the ice, water, food and cab drivers don’t cause you bodily harm.
Where insects are snacks.
Where nearly every mountain is a volcano.
Where the altitude makes climbing two flights of stairs an arduous, breath-taking task.
Where the beers are served with lime and salt.
Mexico City, you are awesome.
