Just stumbled across “36 Hours in Mexico City” from The New York Times. I enjoy this series and this installment is not half bad. The suggestions are predictably heavy on Colonia Roma and Condesa, but props to the grey lady for at least suggesting that visitors eat at a market, in this case Mercado de Medellín. That said, this is the only market on the itinerary, which seems crazy to me. Also, there’s no mention of The National Museum of Anthropology. Hey gringos, there’s a reason why this museum is the most visited in Mexico! It’s freaking amazing. In fact, the whole article is light on museums. Maybe the author wasn’t aware that Mexico City has some of the finest in the world? Also, I find nary a mention of tacos. Going to Mexico City without eating a taco is like…Actually I can’t think of anything comparably remiss. But hey, I have empathy for the writer. The bottom line? Thirty-six hours is not nearly enough time to explore the Big Enchilada. You could totally entertain yourself for 36 hours in the Centro Historico and only make it around the block.
