“Mexico City is the nicest city I’ve ever been to, but as you leave the downtown area, you go from a super nice city to urban slums immediately,” said Brandon. “The streets are mostly unpaved, the cinder block houses are surrounded by high concrete walls and many of the roofs are made out of corrugated cardboard.”
