Mexico City isn't as crowded as we had expected. Maybe it is just the part we are in, but the roads are busy, but less so than many of the large US cities. We watched out of the hotel window today and there just didn't seem to be as much traffic as we would have expected.
Also a quick count out the window revealed that 5 out of 50 vehicles are the old style Volkswagen Beetle. When 10% of the cars on the street are bugs it really feels like you are in a Love Bug movie. In Durango there are fewer Beetles and many more Nissans. It almost seems like cars reproduce around here so one place has a bunch of VW bugs and another has a bunch of Nissan Sentras.
