This is, to my utter surprise and astonishment, one of the best and most beautiful documentary threads ever posted to this board. The subject, being a place I'd barely heard of, and being in Mexico, a place I am unfairly predisposed against because of my experience there being limited to squalid and appalling border towns, is a complete surprise to me. What a beautiful and interesting and cosmopolitan city! I knew from bixa's beautiful Oaxaca threads that that city was amazing and I've heard reports of MC being well worth visiting, but I never expected there to be more of such intriguing allure hiding in relative obscurity. What other cities in Mexico are waiting to astonish and surprise me?
But really, this third visit there was better because of having two great people along with me (and having a better camera). Also, this report is just wonderful because of the fun of seeing what different eyes saw when looking at the same things, not to mention Kerouac's fun and informative narrative throughout.
All of that is going aroung the mulberry bush to tell you the same thing I told you back in 2011:
Fumobici, I think it's a place in which you'd feel instantly relaxed, yet energized.
And that goes for pretty much the entire country. All of the major cities are different from each other, and all are fiercely proud of their differences and their cultures. Don't take my work for it -- come see for yourself!
