Video: 24 hours in Mexico City - Shanghai Expo


Mexico City premiered this short video – featuring images from the city during a 24-hour period – at the Mexican pavilion at Shanghai Expo 2010. The video was produced by the Mexico City Tourism Promotion Fund and co-directed by Luis Mandoki and Mariana Rodriguez. Other credits: Photography and editing by Alberto Anaya, Estaban Arrangoiz and Yaome Escamilla. Music by Alejandro CastaƱos.
Even though this video was shown one year ago, remains relevant and current. Mexico City is full of life, during day and night, and this video pictures it perfectly. Lose the fear and visit Mexico, you will not regret it.

Pictures of Mexico City's landscape during a clear day.

Sometimes smog makes Mexico City's landscape kind of murky, but last week we had some nice clear days. I took the opportunity of taking some nice pictures since I work at a 27 floor building in the NW of the city, near Reforma Avenue. 


The view from the 22th floor.


In a clear day, we could see the mountains that surrounds the valley.


The building left to the flag, is the "Auditorio Nacional" or National Auditorium, a place for big concerts and cultural gatherings. 


All those buildings are in an area called Polanco, and the tallest ones are hotels over Reforma Avenue.


All those trees are part of "Bosque de Chapultepec" or Chapultepec's Forest.
