technically Mexico is in America (North) so
Mexico City - Manila. Sprawl. Pollution. Congestion. Spanish influence.
the Philippines was ruled by the Spanish via Mexico, so there is a lot of shared influence between both countries from food to people. There were Filipinos that fought for the Mexicans during the Mexican war of independence and if I read right there are 1 million Mexicans that have some Filipino ancestry.

only diff is one is land locked, but the essence is the same

Maybe, but I meant it to be a comparison of USA cities and Asian cities. Not trying to be rude, I'm just saying what I meant.

No. I meant for this to be matching a USA city with an Asian city.

The closest American match based on terrain and climate for Ankara would be Denver. For Yekaterinburg, I would say Fairbanks,AK.
