Recommended Expat Blogs: Mexico City

In our InterNations Recommended Blog section we let you take the spotlight! Expat life in general is, of course, a perfect breeding ground for great, user-generated reads, and life in Mexico City makes no exception. Take your time and browse the great blogs showcased in this article!

Everybody who has spent time in a different country knows that expat life is not quite like anything else in the world. The confusion of the first few days and weeks, the slow, but steady process of acclimation, the little peculiarities and quirks that might strike you about your new surroundings: almost any situation you encounter can make for a great story. If you are so inclined and want to blog about it, of course!

Our InterNations recommended blog section features talented expat bloggers from around the world. Their offerings to the blogosphere have been selected for their great entries and high quality, whether they may be funny, informative, interesting, deeply personal or a combination of all of the above.

Let’s hear from our featured bloggers in Mexico City:

Jim: Mexico City

One of the greatest differences between my old life in New York and my current one in Mexico is the change of pace. Chilangos (slang for Mexico City resident) are much more relaxed than New Yorkers, less likely to get angry, and walk so much slower! The sense of history here, both Aztec and Spanish, is palpable, and I think that accounts for some of the laid-back attitudes. Time is experienced as a long arc, so why rush? (The phrase ‘Time is Money’ seems ridiculous here.)

Nicholas: Good Food in Mexico City

One adjustment I’ve had to make is to the pace of life: I’ve had to slow down and not rush, as New Yorker’s are prone to do. If I don’t get on this metro, another will come. And getting used to the idea that social gatherings do not have an “end” time.
