  1. The view from my terrace as the sun rises over the trees while below the cacophony of the city awakens all.
  2. Purchasing freshly ground Cuban coffee from Gran Premio, the 55-year-old corner coffee shop.
  3. Tacos de cochinita pibil at the Diablos Rojos baseball game.
  4. Talking to taxi drivers, who know more about politics than anyone else in the city.
  5. Taking visitors for a ride on the Turibus.
  6. Attending morning MET opera transmissions at the Auditorio Nacional…and the lecture just before given by maestro Sergio Vela.
  7. Buying pirated DVDs from street vendors.
  8. Slugging down vino tinto from my boda bag, accompanied by empanadas de carne, at a corrida de toros at Plaza Mexico.
  9. Roaming Avenida Reforma.
  10. Observing the care with which young women apply their makeup on the Metrobus.
