Arrived in mexico in Febuary 2019. Things was not So easy.
The Spanish is Challenging as Most of the Mexicanos Don’t speak other language than Spanish.
I personally used my wife as Translator as she is from the country.
Important things to know.
- Never walk with big amount of money .
- Never show off your financial ability .
- Don’t trust strangers
- Never buy used item from people you don’t know
- Don’t trust receipt receive or selling papers from sellers on the street! So easy to get Fake papers and make fake papers over here
Personally as a Mauritian citizen who has never taste real Mexican cuisine before was a real Adventure.
Inform yourself about what your tacos is made of before eating it ! Speacialy when buying Street food! Speacialy for Delicate Eaters.
Some Street taco will be made of pork , intestine of the animal As well as brain and so on ! So better be aware.
Personally i don’t eat the intestine but don’t stop me from eating food!
I see there cuisine really tasty with the mix of lime juice , dice tomatoes , onions , cilantro just amazing . Known as pico de gallo
The Pollution :-
If you come from a country that the level of pollution is not really high , Get ready ! As in the picture below its mexico city !
Mexico city bans driving once a week to battle against the air pollution .
Some companies support there workers to work from home at least 1 time a week .
As a foreigner in Mexico , sometimes its challenging to adapt but when you start to adapt to the life style , i bet you , that you will not what to go back to you country of origin .
