The Working Gringos have been traveling in the Estados Unidos for the last week, taking care of family and other business. We are poised on the border, getting ready to cross back into Mexico tomorrow morning.
As we sit here, balanced between two homelands, we have been playing this game of comparing places in the U.S. with places in Mexico. Here’s our first take on a list of Mexican cities as compared to American cities. Join us and play along!!
Morelia is to Mexico as Boston is to the United States
Merida is the New Orleans of Mexico
Monterrey is the Chicago of Mexico
Guadalajara is the Los Angeles of Mexico
Mexico City is, of course, the New York City AND Washington DC of Mexico combined
Cancun is the Las Vegas of Mexico
Puerto Vallarta is the San Diego of Mexico
Veracruz is the Houston of Mexico
Guanajuato is the Boulder of Mexico….?
Villahermosa is the Jersey City of Mexico
Tulum is the Big Sur California of Mexico
San Miguel Allende is the Aspen of Mexico
Tijuana is Tijuana for both Mexico and the United States.
Isn’t this fun???
Here’s a few we’ve had a hard time with:
San Cristobal in Chiapas….? We can’t think of a correlation in the United States.
Maybe Portland Oregon?? San Francisco California?? The Appalachians?
Mazatlan? Queretero? San Luis Potosi??
Help us out here. What do you think?
