Lexy took me sightseeing today. Not to the ruins or anything like that. She revealed to me the secret cure for culture shock which often strikes people visiting for the first time. A trip to the high-end megamalls in the north of the city. I don't even feel like I have culture shock but I started forgetting where I was and automatically speaking to the store employees in English.
It seems you can get almost anything here, now. It didn't used to be that way - Tom was remembering how, when we worked at the now-defunct Mexico City News, the opening of the first McDonald's in Mexico was a really big story.
