The city is prosperous. It is full of trees on every street and it must be the world capitol for good food. It is inexpensive and an American ex-pat population is living well there. The Mexican middle class is growing again. I heard the worse Sax player ever in the Zocalo!
My good friend Jim King's company has Mexican investors and his company is growing.
He was a great host and made me walk a good 20 miles in two days of sight seeing.
