I am a single woman in my late sixties with no children living quite happily in the heart of La Gran Manzana. However, I don't know how relevant my experiences would be to you. What would you like to know?I would love to read your experiences of life in the Manzana Grande!
I have friends trying to convince me to move my family there.
I am not opposed to this but we are going to be doing some serious road-tripping around the country soon.
There are many things the city offers that just aren't available to us here as parents of young children.
What do you mean by "walkability"? Yes, there are sidewalks in Mexico City, though they are often uneven or have unexpected holes in them! In my neighborhood, I can walk to wherever I need to go on my daily rounds: eating out, food shopping, visits to the Post Office, and so on.Relative in the sense of walkability, your experiences and personal outlook on daily life.
Where are you living now?Just those very things. Walking to places for eating out, food shopping, visits to the Post Office, and so on.
Also looking at schools, parks and things like transportation hubs.
