My appreciation of the interior of the Uber stemmed from my three months in Guatemala- Mexico is considered a second world country, with Guatemala sitting in the third world. While those terms and the statistics that go with them can seem very obtuse, I could really feel and see the difference- especially in the thriving capital. Em was amused and bemused by my running commentary of the city- starting with my amazement at the Uber and followed by my ogling of the far less conservative fashions sported on the streets ('woah, I can see that girl's midriff!'), the upkeep of the buildings and the presence of functioning traffic lights. We had a jolly time roving in search of historical sights (Em), vegan tacos (me), and a hopping dance floor (both of us). All of those things were found in abundance, and at such an affordable price the question of whether to get two or three tacos became not a question at all. I could've spent weeks, months, exploring more of the capital, but in actual fact after four days or so I was on my merry way.
Time will tell.
All my love,
