Welcome to Mexico City! This densely populated, high-altitude capital of Mexico is 1,700 miles from Tijuana. On this episode, our first stop is Chapultepec Park, which like Central Park in New York City is a large urban park frequented by locals and tourists. We stroll the halls of a famous castle that played an important role in the Mexican-American War, explore the rich native and colonial past of the city’s main plaza Zócalo, and amble along the cobblestone streets of the Coyoacán neighborhood where some delicious and mouthwatering street food awaits.
