Condesa y Roma
Condesa and Roma are two of the trendiest neighborhoods in Mexico City. While not as upscale as Polanco, walking around this area made me understand why the city is occasionally compared to Buenos Aires. Beautiful Art Nouveau and Art Deco buildings, lively parks, and on-trend restaurants and markets make these neighborhoods a treat to walk around. I'd done a little research using Google Street View before leaving home, and marked some of the oft-photographed buildings on a map (at the end of this post), but I also stumbled across some interesting finds of my own.
