Travel. I went to Mexico City with a friend. Myriam lived there for a while as a young woman, and we went to visit her daughter, who was finishing up her residency at a hospital there. I had just the best time ever.
Mexico City is huge! And very populated! And Old! So much more history than any place I'd been before. And so many more people. (I'm not a city person, I was concerned over how I might feel about being around so many people. But it was okay. )And ancient ruins and artifacts. And traffic and crazy drivers! We walked or took mass transit almost everywhere we went. There's the Metro (subway), Metrobuses, regular buses, buses going every where. One night we took taxi's, because we had a fancy dinner to attend. Between all the walking and being so busy we seldom stopped to eat, I lost 6 pounds in 5 days. Don't worry. I gained it back.
We stayed in or near the central district, not too far from Monumento A la Revolucion. One night there was a massive bicycle rally, so many people of all ages, and so many different types of bikes. The major avenues in the area all had dedicated bike lanes.
