Mexico City through the windows! (Cidade do México através das janelas)

From the ugly smoke that rises covering the stars…
da  feia fumaça que  sobe apagando as estrelas…

From the  taxi window, I was not able to hide the smile for arriving at a place that brings  me back home. When I opened the window of the hotel, this phrase from Caetano  Veloso’s song Sampa came to my  mind. In the song, Caetano sings the reality of contrasts in modern São Paulo. Mexico City welcomed  me with sincere smiles, Tacos  Del Pastor and a gray landscape.

Da janela do taxi, eu não conseguia esconder o sorriso de estar num lugar que lembra minha terra. Quando abri a janela do hotel, a frase da música Sampa, de Caetano Veloso me veio à mente imediatamente. Na música, Caetano versa a realidade de contrastes da moderna São  Paulo.  A Cidade do México me recepcionou com sorrisos sinceros,  tacos del pastor e uma paisagem cinza.
