We had a little earthquake here today at about 10:50 am. It was about a 4.0 on the Richter scale. It was centered a couple of miles off shore out in Lake Erie. I was on break at work. I felt and heard a rumble that lasted just a couple of seconds. I suspected right away that it was an earthquake because they are not uncommon here. I was right.
June in México City is in the mid to upper 70's. June in Mazatlán is around 90 (it's already 85 and climbing). Humidity often matches the temperature here in Mazatlán too. I think the temps in Mazatlán usually get around mid-90's and hover there until late September. It's like that up/down the coast. Looks like June in México City is rainy. Rainy season in Mazatlán starts around the end of June/beginning of July. We usually get ours at night, in cloudbursts that last two or three hours. Smog in México City is crazy though - my inhaler is coming with me! There have also been fires, but the rainy season should help considerably. Elevation of México City is a little over 7,200 feet - and Mazatlán is at sea level.
I'm only in Tijuana to cross the border - flights within México are considerably cheaper than the international ones I can walk across the border and catch a shuttle to the hostel in San Diego I would like to spend a couple of days in Tijuana, just eating street food - but not this trip
Fun to read the wikipedia entry for México City (https://en.wikipedia...iki/Mexico_City) - I knew it's been there a long time, but didn't quite realize it was originally founded in 1325! And over 20 million people - I can attest that the city sprawls for miles and miles. It's amazingly huge. It's a two hour bus ride to Teotihuacan from México City, and the suburbs barely end before arriving at the pyramids.
