I love it! Took me back. I spent some time living right off the Zocalo and also in Colonia Santo Domingo out near UNAM with some of the original "squatters" there. I have lived and traveled to many other major world cities, and none grip me the same way that DF does. It might not be my *favorite* (Reykjavik and Edinburgh take that prize) but it's one that I could see myself living in or traveling to time and time again.

Thanks for the video!

Cool! Thank you muchísimo for a very professional video! The images were compelling and the video effects were very complimentary, especially the black and white shots. I also enjoyed the sound track which flowed with the video and added to the impact of many of the shots, especially the "up close and personal" shots. I though that it was a very introspective look at the heart and soul of Mexico City.

What some of you ethnic Mexicans do not understand ...this is a US English Forum and NOT a SPANISH forum thus posts are to be made in ENGLISH.

I, as an American live in Mexico...speak and understand some Spanish but still understand that a avg American has NO idea what he/she is listening too or is able to read Spanish words.

In Calif I've heard a person (working employee) speaking in Spanish at a fast food restaurant using bad language thinking that the American customers do not understand what was being said. In my book thats not Kosher.

The initial threads may be about Mexico info wise which is nice but should be posted in ENGLISH so people can understand.

I have in my past posts mentioned about all the nice places I've visited that were not shown in tourists hand books...places that were worthwhile seeing in person.

As to travelling fella...I enjoyed some of his postings about his various visits of places I've never been too. He was in essence my touring guide of sorts.

So en ingles Por Favor. Stefhen

So in other words if the video shot in Mexico has background of people on the street speaking Spanish forget it, its going to get banned? I'm sorry but that is a STUPID policy. Yes its an English forum and I see nothing but English postings in the threads. But blocking a video shot in Mexico with no Spanish narrative, just songs in Spanish is ridiculous.

Although any link was broken in the original post, this may have been accidental when the moderators made their comments. They may have inadvertently clipped some of the code. I was still able to find the video using information still in the original post: Mexico City on Vimeo.
