I think of monarchs is the tanks of the butterfly world. so they're small they way only a half a gram but they can travel thousands of kilometers in the wild. This is sonia. All tyzzer many colleges at the university of georgia so i study the ecology of animal migration and sonya says monarch butterflies are different because their migration is multi generational so the same monarch never makes the journey twice. It's their grand offspring and great grand offspring of the migratory generation that will migrate again the following year sonya's specifically talking about a migration path east of the rocky mountains. These monarchs travel thousands of miles across international borders every year. Ecologists think they're looking for the precious milkweed clamped in arguably the most important driver for them is food and especially milkweed plants where the females can lay their eggs. Another reason why they migrate is to ride out the winter in the sierra madre mountains near mexico city

The Problem With Track & Field World Records
"What goes into a world record. Obviously it has to be an incredible performance. Everything has to come together just right. They don't happen very often. When bob beamon broke the world's record in the long jump in nineteen sixty eight. See my previous episode about that. The conditions were perfect. He had the maximum allowable. Tailwind it was at a high altitude in mexico city. He had perfect form and he put together his best jump ever at just the right time since the advent of competitive athletics nine thousand nine hundred twelve. The international association of athletic federation's has been keeping world records in every event. There's been a progression of world records. As people of incrementally bested previous performances. Most world records are only broken by less than one percent. The greatest single increase in a world record was the aforementioned bob beamon jump which beat the previous world record by six point five percent so that is sort of the world record of world records. Each event has a very different progression in how frequent and how recent world records get set. And this gets into the real heart of what i wanna talk about. You should expect to see world records being broken at a slower and slower rate over time as humans. Approach the limit of human performance should become harder and harder to break records. Records will require more luck and more people who have the perfect physique in the very peak of their careers. But this isn't quite what happened in some events there hasn't been a new world record set in over thirty years. You're shulte set the world record in the men's discus in one thousand nine hundred eighty six at seventy four point zero eight meters to put that into perspective. The gold medalist in the two thousand nineteen world championships had a distance of sixty seven point. Five nine meters a full six point five meters or twenty one feet short of the world record the men's hammer throw was also said in nineteen eighty-six yuri set up of the soviet union through the hammer. Eighty six point seven meters. The two thousand nineteen world champion through it. Only eighty point five meters that six point two meters less than the world record. The oldest existing world record in track and field is the women's eight hundred meters. Your meal acrostic viola of czechoslovakia set a world's record finishing the eight hundred in one minute. Fifty three point two eight seconds. That's almost five seconds. Faster than the two thousand nineteen world champion. You might have noticed something that all these really old records have in common. They're all held by athletes from former communist countries. If you're thinking that these records might be tainted by performance enhancing drugs. You aren't alone.

"It's really GonNa make you put yourself out there a bit more coming up Kerry Walker tells us how she learned the fine points of La Dolce Vita in. Tuscany. When David leader left his home in New York to visit Mexico City he really liked what he saw. There was something about it just on the visceral level really got to me and I thought I could live here and if it doesn't work out, I could go back and six months while I'm still there he takes us to Mexico. City for. Experts, guidebook author Taj Beats knows you only live once she recommends some only in La for when things eventually reopened or where your mask and to the famous sign. You're killing two birds with one starting your hiking and seeing the beautiful beautiful L. A. and you're seeing one of the most iconic signs in the world. It's just ahead travel with Rick Steves. A hometown guide to the fun things millennial angelinos recommend, and are eager to get back to in southern California. And White Mexico City offers everything a former New Yorker could want in a place to call home that's coming up this hour on travel with Rick Steves, where at Eight, seven, seven, three, three, three, seven, four to five. Let's start with a look at how you can amplify overseas vacation by signing up for language lessons. Tour Guide Kerry Walker is an American language, but she's worked on her language goes in Central America and was immersing herself in Italian lessons when we last checked in with her Kerry, where have you gone in Italy to study the language I? So I started off in a school at Monte Pacino School in town so I Did that for about a week, which was a great start but then left I really needed more so I quickly learned that private lessons for me were the way to go really get the most being my book I said my last two studies have been in home stays with my teacher. So private is better than group for you for me, but is it more expensive because it's one on one? It is more expensive. But my goal is to really learn the language and order to do that. I realized that I really need that one on one, which is focused exactly on where I am where my misconceptions are the things that I want fine tune, and also that the places that I want to go may teacher can take me there much more quickly they can tailor the teaching to your exact interests you know all over the. World there's a lot of people earning their living despite teaching. English. As a second language is it can flip flop it. Are there a lot of people in Italy that earned their living or supplement their income by teaching foreigners Italian without question it's a big business. How you learn about that you know there's a lot of different ways. There's not one place to go to I. Really do it a lot of different ways I. Just asking people, where did you study? So I, got my last home state through my Italian tutor back home had another student that I spoke to I. So I think really getting those references from other people. Also some research, there's a lot of people now that have contacts with teachers all over Italy, and then you move in and you just how many hours a day or a week where he works. So I did I did about four to six hours a day, but I ate breakfast lunch and dinner with that family our table with ALFRESCO. Semi my classroom was Tuscany alfresco outside as living it. I was I was all those things that I needed to learn. My teacher was right there. So so it's it's a lot of work I I've never bothered I I have. A great time in Italy why would you spend all the time and money learning the language I'd love connecting with the culture I mean I think just to be able to move in and really not only did I. Learn the language I learned the culture I said at that table every day and for me that makes travel so much more real. So that is it. If the bottom line, the bottom line is not speaking the language, but it's connecting with the culture and with the language it's like you've got better vision. Exactly. You've done this also in Costa Rica and. Those are two different. Spanish. Speaking Countries. How does your choice of a destination? Impact, the learning that you have and what you come away with because Costa Rica and Nicaragua you went to both of them and you were trying to learn Spanish Why would you go to one rather than the other for me? It was based on what I wanted to see as well. I had some travel goals to for people. I. Think it's often going to depend on what part of the world you WANNA. See a said oftentimes that's the case also, you have to think about what kind of language you WanNa come away with if you went. Back to learn French and then you go to France, they're gonNA look at you like where are you from? Exactly so that's one of the reasons I chose not to study in Sicily obviously Naples I want to for me 'cause you don't WanNa, go around the world speaking. In, Tuscany, the kind of Italian. That I want to come away with what they're speaking there. This is travel with Rick Steves. We're talking with Jerry Walker about learning languages as part of your travel experience, our phone number's eight, seven, seven, three, three, three, seven, four to five, and Diane's calling from New York City Hi Diane. Guys how are you doing? Good have you ever thought about learning a language abroad? I see but you know what? I'm fifty seven. I'm wondering whether or not. I'm too old to actually pick up a new money which you're just a kid. That's a good question because I know kids can go over there and they absorb it. It's just like you're there. You'll learn it and you play with your friends and suddenly you're bilingual older people. It's a little tougher carry. What's your thoughts on? This is the perfect time to start why not what a great way to sort of immerse yourself in the culture maybe now you have the time. So I think you're never too old to learn the language I. Think this is now's the. Time. Thank you really anything about your goals, starting out what you want to come away with. One thing I think carries getting at is your goal maybe travel maybe you you really wanted to learn about Mexican culture and you're going to go down to the colonial circle and settle into you know send me Gillian Day and hire somebody to to to you're privately and you're going to learn a lot about Mexico as well as picking up some Spanish. So Dan where your travel dreams taking you. You know what my travel dreams in my head is taking me to France and it's taking me towards with I. Understand has some of the most purest form of French. So I said, well, I'm not going. Tours is is a city on the Loire Valley T. O. U. R. S. and that would be known in France for having these sort of the French language that is the venerable French, maybe the the classic French. That's probably a good idea if you're thinking about learning the language to learn the basic language but what are your thoughts on that carry wondered? Are you interested as much in the language are also are you wanting do some sightseeing as well? Is that a region, your interests and? Of course you know the goal is to actually have a twofold approach to learn language, but to also take on the area and I figured if I stay out of Paris I might have tap. This is a good point because carry has studied in four different places in Italy and I would imagine you've gotta choose one of the fundamental determining factors. Do you WanNa go to a touristy area multiple Chano or do you want to go to a place that has no tourism like some of the other? Places that it didn't even recognize exactly. It is a different experience in you might be more immersed in the culture language. If you go where there are no tourists mess definitely in an endangered also forces you to speak the language like you said, and I think that's you know if you're really serious about learning language, your location is incredibly important being in smaller towns is really going to make you put yourself out there a bit more excellent Hey dan have boone shots I think would.

Why don't we put a a wetland there? Why don't we make this space into a lab a living lab a treatment plant a one point six kilometer treatment plan which is an example of what the entire river of fifteen kilometers can then turned into and not eight meters wide but to thirty meters wide at some point right so we need to take the opportunities that are presenting themselves to manifest small pilot programs? Smile small examples of. What's possible and then we build from there. We have a report you can see online in Gupta Dot Amex. If you go scroll down a little bit says report. They're unwell and there.

So it's it's pretty good bamboos. Maybe are better forest or civil pasture. Maybe is better. But what are pretty good and we we do more wetlands. It'll be better than ADP carbons so the recovering example. There we have the data that we cover the story there. We cut the report and that just helps build on what's coming. Mexico City is now closing in on finishing its third wetlands right right at Mexico City the last four years has gone from zero to one hundred forty rain gardens moving in the right direction man. Good if you would have said that to me. Two years ago two years ago we were almost already there but four years ago said like crazy and and then it's moving. It's moving I think not at the pace it should but I do believe it's since before go.

And it's like yeah so a lot of that is what regeneration I believe is about. It's learning to frame our thoughts learning to to frame conversations within the group and to help both the group and the individual women that group develop a better understanding of what they want to do what the place needs to be healthy with the community and displays needs to thrive and start knitting. You are the communities in Mexico City pretty receptive to the ideas of these new architectural standards that you're putting in place. Some are the community. Were working in by. You're right now. Is LIKE AMAZING YEAR? Receptive right is like how did we end up here? This is like a parallel universe. Where never knew this could happen. And obviously there are communities that are like no thank you. Please leave yeah right. I mean you got to get a foothold somewhere start with the people that are receptive and moved from there and people other people see how well it works absolutely absolutely. You need those and we have a couple of good examples like glue project which is a wetland within the Mexico. City fabric right. We started these regenerative development workshops eleven years ago an idea to bring back Mexico City River and we did renderings and promoted that and when a couple of surprises.

"A vision for your local community down there What is it or what do you hope to accomplish in the future at some level? I think it's parts of the network are going to have to reach certain governmental positions. We need to take on the systems of governance. But I don't believe it's through the elections and a necessarily being unofficial representative. I think we need to develop more. And more the capacity to work with current governing structures be corporates or public and to help enhance systems. We need to learn to work within and I say this now. I think it's more true than ever but there are good people everywhere even the Mexican government and even then your local government even in the federal government. There's good people everywhere. So the ability as network to tap into those people and help them develop and help them bring projects into the governing structures that are helping produce healthier and healthier systems. So I I believe we're going there a believe we are gaining more and more the capacity to influence those systems and where I see myself. Participating is in the continual healthy development of urbanistic and bi-regional developments within an architectural developments within Mexico City. But also. I've been realizing that we're my name. I love the city but I also need a place out of it and from me working in by you all for a long time now has been very clear that that somewhere. I'm focusing on coping. Develop because all of these regenerative forestry and healthy food production By is one of those like premier states where we can really help enhance people within that watershed and how help. That's a enhancements expand over it. Not so those are my two by regions. I had a few things going on another by region sadly Or not have what's happened just made the focus within your Tripoli more And by synchronicity. Things that we've been working in this are being accelerated in one or more than one way another project that I'm working on with a couple of partners is when we've framed it like this for awhile. Is we the old buildings and get them ready for the Zombie Apocalypse?

"To be a museum in and of itself so you can visit the forest and learn from it and it systems. The site also aims to have a series of eco-technologies so that we can see them learn from them and hopefully apply them to constructed wetlands clean-energy eco-technologies that go around that and have a space for completion and learning. This is involving a private client that governmental aspects and community aspects with very complex web to knit. But I'm really hopeful. It's moving along and I believe it is necessary. Right for the development of regenerative examples within a megalopolis like Mexico City where we've also been insulting the current administration and the series of green infrastructure and watershed strategies for Mexico City. Things are very slow working at level of bureaucracy in government but still necessary to move along. I'm working with a learning community by you. They were able to be a group that aims to be the promoters of a healthy watershed which is very close to Mexico City which actually sends a lot of water to Mexico City like maybe our ten percent of all Mexico City water which is a lot of water for that by watershed. It's really small one. In comparison right so we're working with the community group there to cope develop our own understanding of the watershed how to link all the different projects and hopefully develop a project there with a local Here I don't know how you say. A communal lands five hundred hector's and we want to help. The Community Develop Micro Industries. And we want to help. The community develop a certain infrastructure to help them be better expressed sustained productive were also downloading a masterclass on watershed design like a watershed modeling and mapping so that we can help people understand vote their own watershed and flow dynamic in their own by region. Something we've working on through while were trying to get it down into digital to help. People were within their own by regions and the NGO was always an ongoing project. Ride were always in the definition of the network. And how can we promote what the network is working for which is a water public space mobility and responsible consumption affor- axis of work and a lot of what we're doing is doing these masterclass? That will start with the watershed. Go down into water harvesting food production and other not aggregate logical and sustainable practices. You can do within your own within your own neighborhood so that that's always something that keeps us. Active keeps me very active and also working on the master plan for part of Mexico City.

I'm just repeating and repeating green infrastructure wetland harvesting and it I mean there is these framework right and that we apply but each project needs to be unique and integrated with each places on unique essence. Very site specific now as great. Then you're able to integrate so many pieces like just involving the community and helping people understand their relationship to the environment and you don't see that all the time in restoration. Sometimes they try to separate nature from people. I mean anything we do. That helps the system. I think good but yes how. My teachers frame is restoration. You listen to regenerate you do your part of it you are embedded in it so I can go to a system. Say Do this. We need to work with the system. The people in the system and helped develop capacities locally hyper locally and let things grow from there..

"Let's get to the conversation with Elliot's Tatan from Mexico City about regenerative approaches. This interview is going to be a little more conversational and we are going to have fun discussing the different aspects of regenerative approaches time for another virtual field excursion. Can you start by telling us a little bit about yourself and who you work? My name is Liz Fan. I just recently got shaved. Because it's too hot and while away from seeing a proper Their status in Mexico City. I I was trained. As an architect and urban est later developed a love for living systems and trained in ecology in living systems designed the Schumacher College. I've been working with the re-genesis Group for a little bit over ten years on regenerative projects regenerative development in Mexico City so are most of your projects in Mexico say the vicinity of Mexico City most Mexico City a little bit in adjacent regions. We've done a couple of projects for Arado and rule and but none built. We did a major wall proposal for trump called ultra nation in our website which is obviously not builds a border wall but regenerate are shared by regions are shared watersheds. And it's about hyper connect not about DISCONNEC- so it's about Hugli. Integrate and develop a shared nation called nation where we would produce all our clean energy a lot of our food and link communities in a fictitious or made up border well fictitious nice project we developed with a mission to the White House it got last Cameron mentioned. This is something. We did in collaboration with Cameron Sinclair. I think we've got twelve thousand hits on the media regarding like trump wants to build a wall. You should build this instead or these hippies wants to take over the world ranging from from all that and it was a good conversation starter and and that's lot of what we do. We try to make a meaningful disruptions in in in systems that are right to become regenerative instead of their current degenerative trajectory.

"Practicing and Their next leader in tackles has almost half of his a number of tackles. which is Joey Bosa? Joy Botha is coming into this game having he's having a career year He has forty eight tackles eight and a half saks. Fourteen and a half tackles for loss and nineteen quarterback hits on the season and Up until earlier today today we got the official word that Eric Fisher would be playing this game. I was extremely his counterpart. Like you said no Vin Gordon. He has four and a half sacks on the season but those are really the only two players on the entire defense who can get after the quarterback. Right everyone else or excuse me. The only other player who has multiple sacks on the season is a defensive back desmond king the second and who has two and a half. But he's a cornerback. Safety Combo I don't really worry about him because I'm through ten games. He only has two and a half. I'm not extremely worried there. Yes he sits where he says where desma king sits in the depth chart He he does. He doesn't even have a starting role exactly he is. They're third. Fourth cornerback. Backup safety I when he gets on the field. Okay just keep an eye on him but don't really worry about keeping busy having having to cover three four or large receivers a tight end. Make him after. Worry about that So how do we negate Joey Bosa And the this game plan that I had was realistically more so for if we had cam irving but I also think that bringing Fisher back especially in the first quarter will be great to being able to test out Fisher and see how he's feeling No so in four games this year Joey Bosa has been negated by offenses with zero sacks and only four quarterback hits those offenses utilized the quick pass attack. Andy Reid has utilized this type of offense before for has been extremely successful and so I think that we will see this early on and maybe a little bit of a mixture of it later on in the game as well but with that quick pass. Joey Bosa doesn't have the time to get to Patrick Mahomes. And then once Eric Fisher starts to get his sea legs back and and he tells the coaching staff. Hey I'm good to go. Who then they can start going with a normal five-step drop up up? And maybe chipping busa double teaming him because there are two interior linemen there. Two defensive tackles those guys whole lot of pressure they just hold the line and they're built more for stopping the run so this might be a game where obviously want to control the the line of scrimmage but from everything I hear from Your Analysis Alice's that this most definitely should be a passing attack which everyone achieves kingdom loves and we trust more than the running game so this might be scenario going to fall right into the favor of the Kansas City chiefs and so that's To me that could be the best outcome for game like this. Yes and what I think. The auto were focused on the defense offense right now but I think what we we need to do is as the game goes on as we continue to put the ball in the end zone on we in the especially towards the second half we start handing the ball off more more and more and feed Damien Williams and because it will last two games that shady hasn't played. We've seen a very he different Damian Williams as the game progresses minus the phone bill. He gets better as the game goes. Yes and he's been averaging if you take away the ninety one yard run. He's averaging three point eight yards per carry with that run added in his Djing six yards per carry. Keep in mind Mars Damian Williams is listed as questionable for this game. Not that he will. Oh not start but I just wanted to throw that in there go ahead yet so When when sheedy is playing? And he's getting the majority of the carries raise Damian Williams is averaging two yards per carry and so we need to keep feeding him because he he gets stronger as the game angles on much like a Derrick Henry. Much like a Leonard Fournette. They're gonNA wear you down with their physicality and I. We need to utilize that especially once. We have a big lead lead which we should have run the ball. Keep the clock running and keep getting big chunks of yards and that's and that should be. The focus is managing the clock. Manage the clock clock manage the clock because I do feel like the chargers are a team that can you know. Put some points up against us. They're a not a a lacking team as far as talent. They might be the team. Stacks up the best against the chiefs in Narrative Vision offensively so I feel like it's an extremely imperative for for the chiefs to to come out and put on a great offensive performance performance. But I also will say look. The chiefs have had the chargers number and Philip rivers number for quite some time and also. I always always believed that. Plays in our favor as well and until that You know that changes still feel that way so overall the feeling for this game. I'm pretty confident. Well because you won't you kind of touched on the offense. I'm going to break that down really quickly especially with the trenches and sticking with the offensive line so do the injuries and inexperience along. Their offense of line expected to try to utilize their run game and quick passes to avoid a putting pressure on rivers. Rivers has excuse me Let's see he's only had one game this season which he has not been sacked. He's.

"By the players. The players union by it's it's been presented to the NFL and if the NFL slash KC approve of it. They sign off on it. If they want to change it and and increase they can but then the player has the opportunity to appeal bill and then the appeal goes to a different committee different group but then if so going to with the sorry that you just brought up up let's say for instance that cadel wants to decrease the suspension or the punishment. Then that ends up going back to the committee and in some way shape or form they need a vote on it and some percentage need to say agree or disagree we can work all that out later on but a at least in theory in my mind this puts the onus on the players and the I think it means more because the players would be voting in people who are actually going to represent and quote unquote govern earn that committee. You with respect and hold it with Take the job very seriously so that you can have this situation like this. Where does something I like this or any player does something like this and gets a one game suspension? Yes and it's not and so when you when you bring an outside source like that end and it also takes away the scenario of it doesn't matter about the NFL as a whole. It doesn't matter about the season or the player on the team. You know it's not going to hinder or make a suspension any longer or shorter which that is a great thing because look if your a star player in the league and you do something you know as a gracious is myles Garrett cold the other evening you know you should be sat for the year and possibly we never brought back to the NFL. It doesn't matter what your stature is in the NFL. If you're superstar not and I feel like that would be a flawless system to hint down the right suspensions the right way and and take the you know the season you know out of it because that stuff matters matters the NFL it matters. WHO's on the field? You know I think that guys like Tony Dungee who truly love love and respect this game would be fantastic person have on that committee because they've been been involved with his game for thirty plus plus years. It's it's funny that you say that because that was the first person that came to my mind is well and then you know a coach. It's like bill cower you know and I know you only said one coach but it's it's you know when you think of you know the potentials you could have some really really brilliant minds that will you know take heed of the the seriousness behind stuff like this because you think of if the other player and you think of the other players families and kids and things and the future of everything that's involved outside of football and I think that's the most important portent saying and you know guys like Tony. Dungee or Bill Cower Jerry Rice you know as a former player you know people like that. That's who you'd want in this committee. Yeah absolutely and One guy that I would think would be an interesting add to the committee because when he was on the field when he was is playing Especially when he was younger.

"That's something that needs to be brought to the table because there is a a there's not justice I don't think within that system as far as the you know the level of extremist you know this was extreme. This was extremely huge. When it comes to you know a Berol on the field? We've never seen this before. And I don't. I don't think that the level of punishment fits the scenario. Okay so to follow up on what you're saying Fan myles Garrett Ogan jobe. Both of the browns players are both planning to appeal their suspensions while yeah exactly But to further your point and to go back to what I was saying and this is my proposal because because coming up here in a few years the collective bargaining agreement runs out and the NFL and the player's Association. The Union are going to taft to come up with a new agreement in that agreement. This is my proposal the NFL sets up antle the NFL and the players union sets up a committee. That is the I don't know what thank you would call it. We're going to say the Punch Committee. We can rename later and the NFL will come up with a list of all all the former players who have ever played the game they have a list of all the players that have ever played the game and former head coaches choose the players. All active players vote on three former players Three current players one of which has to be a member of the Union a discipline committee exactly exactly and then a former head coach J.. These guys work for the NFL. They not work. There's no excuse me they work with the NFL do not work for the NFL the NFL pays them. They represent the players union because ultimately the players need to cirque controlling themselves and managing and governing themselves. Because it really frustrates me. When all of these suspensions are handed out and then every single time these players go and they appeal and they a win and I think it means more when your colleagues are telling you you're wrong? This is what we are saying. Do you need to do so going back. To to the scenario the punishment committee he makes the proposal guy. Not at the player did this. They should be suspended for for three games if the NFL. which in those? This cases Goodell the commissioner if he doesn't feel that the punishment meets the the infraction than he can increase it. Now here's the fun part. The player who has committed the infraction can't appeal the committee's Directive in your committee suspension for three games. He has take those three games. Okay so I have a question so you said that Roger Goodell could change what the committee lay down upon player by increasing it. I think that it would be a great thing to also implement. Simple meant to get keep the power within this committee that Roger Goodell cannot go underneath the given punishment Schmidt that the committee handed down to the player he can only increase it okay so from a PR standpoint. It would be career suicide esque to make that sort of move because unless he hassles are like inside information. There was a reason why the player did ex wires evolve law. Whatever but that should that information should be shared with the committee the Commissioners Commissioners would never ever undermine that committee because it would make no sense to undermine the the players? I and the coaches who are tasked with governing the the The NFL players behavior and actions on and off the field. Okay now and I understand personally what you're saying but on an NFL business standpoint as a whole with all due respect do I say this. Do you understand. We're talking about here. Yes win win. Has He came On very few occasions has he ever under under punished the player for for their actions and behavior. And I'm not saying on that standpoint. I'm just saying Overall you know when we think of Roger Goodell I mean there's we'll we'll put it this way. He doesn't have a lot of fans and and he's okay with that and so I'll just put it that way. That's those lightest. I can put with with Roger Goodell but no. I think you're right. You know we stamps committee so I don't assume this is you're saying this is an outside agency hired by the NFL L. so there's no biased opinions. There's no you know it's hey. This is the panel of people the NFL's hiring to bring the into this internal investigation. Yes and it has this checks and balances built into it so the punishment is ultimately controlled.

"Raphael fell as a really interesting neighborhood to visit to because it's a very old neighborhood. It was one of the first places when the aristocratic families wanted to start moving out of the CENTRO. They started moving into these new suburban neighborhoods right now. They feel like they're right next door. You know that's walkable between the Century Study Cassandra file but at that time they built their mansions there it was like moving out into the country and now all of those buildings they've been there for hundreds of years and now they have mechanic shops in little careers in them. It's a really vibrant neighborhood hood with lots of people walking around the street there some cool coffee shops but mostly. It's just a lot of old time places. That's a really fun place to explore on foot. If you wanted to go to some real neighborhood in a random way that was a working class neighborhood with vibrant markets and just a slice of life of urban Mexico. What would you recommend fail. L. Is a good working class neighborhood to explore as is the Santa Maria Larry Beta which is just a little bit further out from the center and if you're looking for some vivid a little slice of life what would it be. I mean I remember these old fashioned tortilla machines that were just so beautiful so rickety and they would just be cranking out endless bliss so little produce yeah definitely lots of those. I think there's a lot of places in Mexico City where you can find really long running vibrant culture. Are you know there's tons of coffee. Shops Mexico grows a lot of coffee and there have always been a great coffee culture there so that you can you know walking down any neighborhood. Even the trendiest neighborhoods are still. We're gonNA find the old coffee shop with the old man eating pundits. You'll say sweet bread and having their coffee reading the paper. Those places are everywhere wrote that again. Tina's in your moon guidebook to Mexico City you wrote about how that tell you find a little intimate corner of the local cultures going to cuffy shop. What about CHAPULTEPEC multiple pack doc is Mexico City's gigantic urban park. It's more like a forest than apart. It's a beautiful park and it's also the sight of some of the most important museums in the the city notably the absolutely unmissable and absolutely spectacular anthropology museum. That's brings a lot of tourists to to pull back to spend a day or half a day wandering through the anthropology museum but it's also worth taking a spin around the park itself which is shaded by these old cypress trees that have been there for hundreds of years and it's actually been a park since the time of the machine pretended to cheat lawn the Aztec City the Mexico City to pull apart that the rulers would go out and spend a day in the country cheer and afternoon in the country so it's always sort of been this country and then later the Spanish did the same you mean didn't just take over a bunch of grumbling barbaric humans animals. I mean they were actually civilized in Mexico when when the Spaniards came in fact the Spanish were blown away when they saw the city of Tennessee line it was enormous and orderly and it had beautiful spectacular markets they couldn't believe in fact it was all ridden by canals. Isn't that an amazing easing thing to think that Europeans conned themselves into thinking that they just were you know invading heathens and giving Christian faith when when really these were very very sophisticated societies and beautiful cities in some cases Mexico City compared to Venice at the time and it had those canals and an amazing system of government and and criticize happened to be able to go in there and because of a few quirky little lucky breaks was able to conquer Mexico yeah and a lot of what we know about the city today or about ten feet long about the Aztec city is from the Spanish chronicles. You know they wrote about it. They were blown away by what they saw. When they came to ten feet long you can learn about that that the National Museum the event apology and that's in the Chapultepec area and I'll tell you if you're going out into the countryside and going to be visiting some of the ruins and so on you you gotta see this first and if you're not gonNA get the chance to go to the countryside then you need to see also it's just it's a beautiful museum and it's so important to gain an appreciation of Pre Columbian Mexico. That's right the report about the neighborhood called a Roma well. Roma is today probably the hippest coolest neighborhood in Mexico City but it was built originally in the nineteenth century so or the very beginning of the twentieth century actually so it's also a place with lots of gorgeous architecture a lot of ECLECTIC architecture some beautiful art nouveau architecture and for a long time. It was sort of working class neighborhood but little by little it's become the hot spot in Mexico City so this is the place to go. Oh you are a foodie. The Rome is the place to go. There's really wonderful restaurants of all types great nightlife bookshops great shopping cool boutiques six this is travel with Rick Steves. We're talking with Julie Mead and she writes the Moon Guidebook to Mexico City and Julie in your book. You've got this wonderful list of top sites eight and Cantina culture mid the list of top quote site. Why would you rate Cantina culture right up there with all the great museums and galleries well. I think that it's a pretty unique and wonderful part of life in Mexico City. There are cantinas everywhere. CANTINAS can sort of range from a place that really is just sort of a barebones bar where the neighborhood locals are. GonNa get together and talk and play Dominos and everybody knows each other and they maybe served some peanuts to place where you can have a full sit down meal where every drink you order comes with a plate of food and some of Cantinas are even really good dining destinations nations the other well known in the city as a place to eat so it's a really low key he version. It's a nightlife sort of thing or afternoon evening place to go out and get got together but it's a very low key. It's like a Tapas bar in Spain is is it a vestige of the Spanish colonial experience well. That's a good question that I don't know the answer because because I mean you got you got that wonderful ambience you know you can just stay awhile atmosphere and fund workaday food in a Tapas bar in Spain. It sounds like you got the same thing in a Cantina in Mexico City. What's one tip to assure you fit rated in the Cantina culture well. The best tip would be to learn the lyrics some some popular songs in Spanish. That's kind of a tall order. I guess I'd say don't drink corona with lime. People don't do that Mexico. Lyon your corona. I think a lot of people going super local that you're being Super Gringo now. If you WANNA even be more locally you can drink the intoxicating drink to talk about the the Polka Polka fermented beverage made from the sap of the McGee cactus and it's been drunken Mexico since long before the conquest and it was really popular popular during the time when the machine ruled Mexico they were very upset me as people they wouldn't let anybody drink pool except for the priests and the nobleman but once they fell in the Spanish Spanish took over while everyone said great. Let's drink pool K. because it's a delicious sort of fizzy sort of slimy which sounds terrible but it's not it's delicious drink. Ah then is usually flavored with a fresh fruit gum guava mango sorte peanut flavor. It's a fermented sap of CACTUS. That's slimy and end with other fruits sounds so good but it's not as mode exploited to this. There's no big commercial production well. There can't be because pork is something it has to be drunk within a day or two of its productions so all of the Polka Mexico City is a big place to drink it because most of the Production Pool K. is in the ranch's right around Mexico. Oh City in the states around Mexico City and really it has to be pulled out of the CACTUS and fermented and within a day or two. It has to be consumed so there's no way to really export polka. Can you get drunk on it yeah. You got to drink a lot. Though it's a very low alcohol content you can feel the effects of it after usually at served actually very big glasses for that reason so you know feel it. Let's head no option. They got drunk on Pool K. Yes that's right interesting data. Eh the equivalent of a of a medieval kind of mead or something like that in Europe would be making a big comeback in in Mexico City which is becoming quite trendy. I would think vermouth and cocktails tails would be more hip but there's actually a mess drink. That's holding its own with its own burkhalter. Yeah well you get a little bit of both actually and nowadays so a traditional nope Acadia the places where they serve McKay. There are some that have been around for over one hundred years well. Those places are PULCI and nothing else and they serve it in the daytime. You know they open at ten o'clock in the morning. They're done by six. The pool is gone. That's a traditional Katya but now you can find lots of cocktail buyers that might have a pool in curtail on the Menu Julie. This has been such a great review of the neighborhoods of massive Mexico City congratulations on your guidebook the moon guidebook for Mexico City. Let's just finish with an idea where I can just I just want to kick back and be part of the parade of local life and either sit and enjoy watching it or actually be part of it on a Sunday afternoon. Where would I be in Mexico City. Well I would say the best place to go is to the CEO delivery format and then right next door to to put the pack the park because on Sundays the buzzer La Reforma is closed closed to automobile traffic. It's this big old boulevard that runs all the way through the city studded with monuments skyscrapers on either side and it runs through the park of triplet the pack and they closed it on Sundays so that people can ride bicycles. They can jog take their dog on a walk families. Go Out. There's music. It's really fun and and you get a really great Sunday vibe everybody comes out and then you can pop into the park where it's a veritable party on Sundays so really family family oriented place people are picnicking there flooding little boats on the lakes there. I think that's a wonderful place spent a Sunday so the Paseo de reform a boulevard Lavar close to cars on a Sunday were filled with people enjoying a beautiful afternoon and then from there head over to Chapultepec Park. That's what I would recommend sounds good. Thanks thank.

"Will open the phones at eight seven seven three three three rick to check in on your travel plans in just a bit but first we're finding adventures in the new world with tips for experiencing Mexico City One neighborhood at a time that's next on travel with Rick Steves. The ancient capital of the Aztec Empire is now the massive capital city of Mexico off Mexico City has grown into an important cultural and business hub. You could even didn't say the most influential city Latin America. There's more than one hundred and fifty museums gorgeous parks and some of the most vibrant markets and hip eateries in the Americas. It's a sprawling metropolis of some twenty million and it's full of surprises contradictions that make the city worth the effort. It requires to explore. We're joined now now. By Julie Mead she writes the Moon Guidebook to Mexico City. Julie fell in love with the city on her first visit some twenty years ago. She's here to help us explore Mexico City Eighty one neighborhood at a time duly. What was it about Mexico City that drew you in and what about it made you WANNA leave. Californian actually lived there for ten years well. It's it's hard to say exactly. It's the city like no other in the world and I was a young woman early out of college and I traveled there for the first time and and the energy of the place the fact that it was so close to my my home in California growing up and yet felt so different so foreign so many worlds away those things really drew me in and I wanted to feel a change in my life in that city just felt like it could bring it about. It felt powerful every time I fly there. I'm just you you connect from Houston or wherever and it's you're there in a couple of hours and you realize wow this is a completely different cultural capital and it's not even on the radar of so many American travelers so many people go to Cancun or the resorts on the West Coast and they're missing something when they get Mexico City. What's The vibe lately and what are the Challenges Challenges for the American visitor. What you're describing is true but it is beginning to change. A lot of people have recently recognised. Mexico City is a wonderful place to visit culturally culturally Colin narrowly so tourism has been taking off especially with that sort of younger hipster crowd. You've got a lot of cool bars lots of great food restaurants tons of museums and galleries a bunch of opened in the last decade so you're getting a lot more tourism than say when I first moved there in two thousand one rare you would see a tourist maybe in the centre with their backpack looking at the ruins or at the anthropology museum but now people go for all sorts it's of reasons they go to go out may go for the food they go to checkout galleries and underground poetry readings so it's definitely changed over the past twenty years now when you fly in it seems like it sprawls forever in fact it's one of my favorite views at an airplane window is coming into Mexico City because he just think whole twenty million Ryan people or whatever it is but you can think of Mexico City as a collection of neighborhoods and does make it a little easier doesn't it it certainly does it's very provincial in a way you can go from one neighborhood to another and each one feels like its own distinct city with its own community and vibe and things to do their glasses go through them because your book covers the city so well it pulls it down to size and we can deal with one neighborhood at a time first of all you have the central historical district. What is that well. That's the oldest district in the city five hundred years ago. When the Spanish arrived in the Valley of Mexico there was a little island in the middle of a huge lake and that was the Aztec City the F. penalty plan that city is what today is considered the central story for the very oldest neighborhood in Mexico City so that's where the Spanish vanish after the conquest built their own capital the capital of new Spain and they named it after the people who are living there the Sheikha people is where Mexico gets its name so that that little island became the founding neighborhood of Mexico City and it's got this beautiful old colonial architecture square this Colo.. That's does Okelo which is the main square was called the plaza my yard men throughout all of the colonial era and today it's called Zocalo because it adjoins the Cathedral resume or yes so if you if you've been to Spain. It's just it's another pleasant mayor. Every town has agreed square with the Cathedral facing it and and it just makes sense that there you would find the colonial area era palaces and chapels and grand buildings. It's a great area to explore from sightseeing point of view. Do you actually see any as tick remains he do and I think that's one of the most fascinating elements of visiting Mexico City in general right there right adjoining the cathedral which the Spanish built was at the most Holy Temple for the machine people and when Cortez Conquest did the city they raised the Masika city of ten not plan and they built their city right on top of it using the same bricks from the pyramids that they've Feld and they built over it so completely that everyone forgot where it was they forgot that the city was underneath the KISTA doors. They build right on the holy spot. We're exploring Mexico. City's neighborhoods travel with Rick Steves with Julie me. She's the author of the Moon Mexico City guidebook. Julie has spent more than a decade get into New Mexico's capital from its grand tractions to its earthy delays. You'll find web links to her work with this week. Show at Rick Steves dot com slash radio all right so you built your holy spot on top of their holy spot. That's the Zocalo and you you decorate the the big square with your colonial infrastructure and today as tourists four hundred five hundred years later. That's the number one thing to see probably but a lot of people are drawn to the What is it Alameda Central yeah well. I'll let made a centrale was the first big park in Mexico City. It was the first step public strolling park and that sort of on the western end of the central and the big attraction there in my opinion is the beautiful beautiful Palacio biggest artists the palace of fine arts within that does have Diego Rivera Mural in it a famous one that Rockefeller Commission and then threw a fit when it had communist themes in it and so they relocated it to that got palace but it's also just an amazing building a beautiful marble building and on the inside it has one of the most spectacular art deco interiors you can imagine so that's definitely worth a visit right on the element of also what colonial-era churches or their Zima pump several throughout the entire you're centrally story go and the Alameda that whole area is just replete with Beautiful Colonial Era Mansions Palaces churches a a lot of giant convents and churches were destroyed during the reforms of the nineteenth century but there still remains a religious buildings and convents all throughout the Centro. It's really fascinating fascinating and beautiful. It's one of the most captivating places in Mexico so one place that has historically been the tourist zone as Zona Rosa. What's that like these days. There's Zona Rosa has come and gone in terms of its fashionableness. It was very fashionable place to hang out in the sixties and seventies it was sort of the heart of Bohemian culture and since then it's become a little less noisy chaotic. It's right next to the salary forum. I saw a lot of business people passing through Kinda ugly end of tourism to me that the Warez neighborhood is a little more trendy. Isn't it right next to it. Yeah you know there's only Rosa has lots of architecture to but in the whereas you're seeing it preserved served in a more historical way. There aren't as many you know fast food restaurants. It's quieter. You know sort of gone that way more but that doesn't mean there aren't interesting things there you know there are some really great. Korean restaurants because that's where a lot of the local Korean population lives so there's things to explore even in places that seem like they are little down at heel now. They're still really interesting things to see. This is traveled Rick Steves. We're talking with Julie need her. Book is the Moon Guide to Mexico City and were learning just what to do when you get to this overwhelming the city when you do tackle the city neighborhood at a time.

"It's great to have the game shared with our neighbor country here. That's amazing. But this game has taken on a different element here. It is not only the best game of the year. It's one of the best games since the merger since nineteen seventy. There's only been five to one loss teams meeting this late in the season. You want to show? It would be a perfect storm. If we get a great show between these two teams, and we get to share with Mexico City. But if the turf grass is not up to snuff that you're not going to get the tape the same type of explosive plays. You're not gonna get the same type of football. So why are you sharing that with, you know, Mexico City, necessarily and keeping our players unsafe? Definitely try to move this back to LA as soon as possible. If that's the case promise, we'll make it up to you with another game. Makes you want to get back in years. Please go ahead. Yes. Serra made a great point about the only could parable. The incident is when the Rosebowl did change feels in two thousand fourteen they had six months, they planned for that for six months, and they worked it out, and they barely got it done. So this is trying to trying to be playing. Six hours not gonna wear not going to happen. We're not know that that was five days this is nine days. So they do have more time that was preplanned though. And also that this is the third game at this stadium in Mexico City. It's not the first that does make a difference to me in terms of how import okay, but NFL games do update their Saad mid week. This happens in the NFL as well player safety of the most important thing did anybody check out the air quality last night, and San Francisco just outside San Francisco there were fans wearing masks watching the game the bulletin came in that you should not exert yourself yet they still played football game with the fire so close to the stadium last night. And there's a lot of these decisions that come up mid week of a game. And then the game gets played in you never hear about it. Again. That's what he in fact LA bring you want him back in LA. I'm sure the ran back in L A. It's an important game. We'll move on. Let's talk about the game last night between the forty Niners. The giant giants. One twenty seven Twenty-three he had his thirty first career comeback regular season postseason. But it probably has been cracked the top thirty things that pull them five. Teams men five hundred Odell Beckham left of this game happy. So I think we can all be happy on that level. Sarahspain giant fence today. They should feel differently. Depending on what their end goal is. If they want ally to experience a couple more wins and go out a little bit in style. After all he's done for the franchise, then they're hoping he sticks around for a couple more games than plays the way. He did pulling off comebacks like they did yesterday for the win. If they want to get a better draft pick. Then they're wondering why so much effort is being put into trying to win games. Now instead of look at the successor to ally if they want to see what kala Lennon can do then they're wondering why a win like this in the season that started out one in seven is more important than getting a look at what's next to me, the most important thing I can say about this at the very least is it's never too late to get the right attitude and to see oh be Jay after the game saying something like we just got to win the next seven. This is my guy doing the right things. It's never too late to figure out how to do right by your quarterback in your team. And he's doing it. Now, they just need everyone else to lose every other game if they win..

Bet- better than. Radha flip is better than all the. Spot famous. Look at these images of the field in Mexico City set to host the biggest game of the NFL season next Monday night Rams and sheath floor ongoing discussion about whether that surface can get up to playing level and the next week or the league would be better off moving the game back to Los Angeles. It was giving up the home game to play in Mexico or postponing it all together. It's been characterized the NFL's determined to play this game in Mexico City. Bill plastic I'll start with you, you're based in Los Angeles. How important is it for this game to go off in Mexico? Not nearly as important as players safety. Tony that's got to be the number one priority here. And I don't see how that field can be safe. We've seen the photos of I don't know how they can recite another reassignment. Now. I don't see how they can get in in that in good condition in a week. They have to understand that the NFL plays there. They decided to play there every case of turf toe is going to be examined every twisted ankle every knee thing. Everything's going to be examined for safety. It's too risky move. It back to LA. The league is done this before they've canceled a hall of fame game because of a bad. Field. They moved to stadium in San Diego in two thousand and three they moved the charges planet in Tempe because they had state yet stadium issues they've done this before do this now for the players sake. They need to do are you hearing anything from the LA Rams that they want this game back in Los Angeles. Well, yeah, I'm sure they do and it's a home game. Because there'd be no way it'd be the Marquis game of the season in the market town of the season. They gotta move page. Join us. Yeah. You should be talking about with the Rams are saying they're here in Colorado training for this game. Hi. So they're Suming that it's going to go on and they're getting ready for it. And that way, but that game should not be played in Mexico City that the officials of that stadium knew it was coming. But yet they had all those concerts. They had the soccer games. It looked awful for that soccer match on Saturday. And there's no way having covered an NFC championship game in San Francisco between Dallas and forty Niners where the turf was put in that week by George Toma. It didn't work then it's not going to work. Now, you can't grow grass in that period. Time any more than you. Go hair in a week on Sarah. We we don't we don't eat. We don't need to bring it anybody's hair follicles at the moment. But for the is out there what he paid. You gotta tell us who George Toma, and what his nickname was. Marquee Assad every time there was a Super Bowl. He was brought in. To work with Assad every time there was a Pro Bowl in Hawaii. He'd go out there and go re NFL films history for us how about you Sarah Spain. Well, Bill already covered the biggest most important part, which is safety. But when it comes to this particular game, it's also entertainment value. This is coming in and opened with the biggest over under and over thirty years at sixty four two of the best teams in the league. They don't want to have them injured. But they also don't want this game to end up being a money disaster. Now in two thousand fourteen the Rosebowl had to replace the field between the Rose Bowl and the championship. But that was a field on top of field situation. And that bottom field wasn't a much better position than this one. Is right now they're taking a completely hybrid field out and then signing it with a completely different service. And it's supposed to rain the next three days there to to me, this feels like if you have the Rams home stadium open, which is always what they do with international games. Then you should use it. If there's any doubt once in Israel Gutierrez. Yeah. I feel like if there's any doubt like like Sarah said, you should replace..

"Whether the players already taken I don't know that but we'd like to kind of know this beforehand because now they're training altitude the game might be at sea level if they move back to LA. Well, that's I mean, there's only so much you can do in the league will have to make a decision. Do. We have a sense on timing. I know this both teams want clarity by the end of this week. And I'm not talking about like Saturday or Sunday. But obviously you want right away. I mean, they want clarity last yesterday. But it gets find a picture. It's it looks like it looks like someone took green paint and Brown paint and was mixing them separate color. That's just a bad. Look right now it is. And if it is played in Mexico City coach how big a fit issue is the altitude. We talk about training in Colorado. Big coach in Denver for four years. I know it was an advantage it on another fell schedule. My understanding of all the research. There's really no way possible. Unless you go months in advance, I go all the way back to the Mexico City Olympics. That's been a long time. I'm dating myself, but they went months early, so really an NFL schedule. I don't think you can train for it to be honest with you amount of time you have coming off of a game a week ago or seven day period. Well, you heard Tim mention the two MVP candidates. He's exactly right in this game. You arguably have the two front runners that would be Pat Mahomes and Todd Gurley Mahomes has already broken the chiefs single season touchdown passes record and also has the most touchdown passes through ten ten team games by first or second year quarterback asks for girly. He's scored a touchdown in all ten games. One four in fell history. Score a touchdown in. Each of his team's first ten games. He joined OJ Simpson. Lenny Moore and Elroy Hirsch who's your VP coach almetco, Patrick Mahomes. Simple reason is is he's going to have the ball in his hands every play in this game. Whereas Todd Gurley. He's gonna get plenty of his touches. But he's not going to have it in his hands every damn it favors quarterback. There's no question the voters like the quarterback. I think because of the stuff that Mahomes has done. I mean, we also just looks different than the way. It looks for other quarterbacks. I think because of that I would go Mahomes house put this how about this Todd grow is the fantasy football MVP hoses the NFL MVP still trying to figure this stuff out the tutor. Down from both of you about that. Well, here's a look at Mahomes and Jared Goff..

"When again, this is the chiefs and Rams they had to Mexico City. Both games come into this game with nine and one records. But there is some uncertainty as you will see from a tweet, courtesy of our Adam Schefter. This was earlier today. Discussions continue about weather, Monday nights. Chiefs Rams game will be played in Mexico City in L A or postponed the NFL determined to play it Monday night in Mexico City. But the field is what they are calling a mess and player faith thirty could be a concern. And obviously, that's a you know, you see that. And it gets your attention feel what is going on. If you were to look at a studio OS tech right now, you would think that is nowhere close to being ready for football game. And now six days from this time and first of all a couple of things here one it's not a football field naturally. And if you've watched some of the London games there's been issue with slick surfaces playing on a soccer field. If you watch what happens when the raiders? Host home games during the baseball season. Of course, they share their stadium with the Oakland Athletics. You can see some of the ramifications there and there have been several events at Estonia west Teke that have chewed up this field that if you see a sky view right now, bird's eye view it. Looks unplayable for a football game much less than NFL game that might be the match up of the regular season. So the NFL and both clubs are looking for clarity, especially these clubs who are thinking about their players safety. I know the NFL has a business decision to make as well. But for now, we wait and see. Well, they'll have a business decision if they lose one of these marquee players. Patrick Mahomes gets hurt if Jerry I'm going to be honest to me, I think this is an absolute joke. You mentioned peewee football to be honest with you. I coach peewee football. We played on a better surface. Right. Yeah. Highschool games around the country are played on a better service. This is up on them. No. They know that up on you. And honestly, we're talking about being two of the best teams to p candidates playing in this game question own bed. That I just think I understand the NFL's trying to grow the game and play it in different venues in front of different audiences. And you know, I think that. Okay. If you're gonna do something where you whatever you take care of the stadium, and whatever it would cost to be able to to shut that stadium down for an entire week or two before you play it. So that the surface can be okay. Honestly, I it's an embarrassment. I it's an embarrassment that at this point instead of talking about Jared Goff in Pat Mahomes and Todd Gurley. We're talking about the grasp being a mess in some stadium in Mexico City one hundred percent agree, and I would say this. So while it might be an embarrassment. It's also a logistical nightmare. Coach for these teams who were trying to repair, and if you prepare if you look at what the Rams have had to contend with whether it was a a an awful mass shooting, then the wildfires who have affected a lot of those employees now the uncertainty which less so but still of where they'll play this game. I mean, how do you manage this? They were going to bring they were going to bring families the whole team to Colorado to train them out to do. Now..

"In the rainy season in Mexico. Most afternoons, thick clouds roll into Mexico City's mountain-ringed valley, the skies darken. Then they open. Despite the rainfall, many of Mexico City's more than twenty million residents don't have enough water to drink nearly all that rain runs off concrete coverage streets into a drainage system, built to avoid flooding drinking. Water increasingly comes from a vast aquifer under the city. And as that water table drops, the city sinks all this week. We're talking about water who's got it, and who doesn't today NPR's Carrie Kahn takes us to Mexico City. This sprawling megalopolis it's more than seven thousand feet above sea level in the mountain ring valley that fills like a plugged a bath tub. When it rains e study. As it does on use key less you does Ganapati. So it's an historic mistake. The city has had to pay for for more than five hundred years says Ramona Aguirre d. s who's run Mexico City's water system for more than a decade while the Aztecs I built the city here Agadir says it was an an Cortez and his band of conquerors in the sixteen hundreds who did the initial damage draining the vast lakes that once filled this large valley by the twentieth century, not much surface-water survived as the city kept growing these days. Water is piped in over hundreds of miles filling thirty percent of the city's freshwater needs. The rest comes from Mexico City's vast underground aquifers today geared. He says twice as much water as pumped out of there. Then as put back in Ceuta done, little more looming Casella Masanobu anti cintos me lasagna's we are depleting volumes of water that took hundreds thousands of years to store sooner or later. It will run. Out. He says, when exactly that is no one really knows. But for those living in the poorer eastern stretches of the city like Marco Marquez, it feels like now. Lookie says, spinning the tap of his water faucet, nothing not even a drop during the rainy season. He gets about an hour of water a day. His tiny patio is crammed with all sizes of storage. Containers filled with water during the dry season. He says he can go to even three months without water. Sometimes he says the government sends in water trucks, known as people. Casulty awareness. It moving Mallika. The quality of that water is terrible. It's disgusting. He says, you can only use it to flush the toilets or wash the sidewalk these days more and more people in the city depend on people's for their water. The city's underground pipes, half a witch or at least sixty years old fail at an alarming rate. Water from trucks, like one Florida's is in high demand. But with United Funke they left before, he's on top of a twenty six hundred gallon tanker filling it up at a city run station where the water is pumped directly out of aquifer. In many ways, it's a much more efficient system. The city's pipes are so prone to breaks leaks that nearly forty percent of the potable water is just wasted that inefficiency along with urban sprawl and hotter weather, due to climate change has put even more demand on the over-exploited aquifers and as the water table drops. So does many parts of the city on average about eight inches a year, even more in some spots as the earth sinks leaves buildings, tilting roadways, buckling and pipes rupturing or buckling backwards. Check out the patio, a forty two year old, Maria Stella, ease love house, where she just started a load of laundry. She hasn't had water in days. She fills her washing machine with water. She scoops out of a huge blue plastic storage barrel, say, Pakistan. Participatory look patio. It's full of cracks. A huge Fisher runs right through our property out the gate and down the street. One, half of the block is sunk. It's at least a foot lower than the other side, the underground sewer line connected to her house. Now tilts upward and floods her patio, especially on rainy days since the nineteen hundreds. The city has spent billions on flood control. The latest project already topping two billion dollars as plagued with cost overruns and delays and will do little to help the city's water shortage or sinking problems. It just moves the water rain and sewer discharge out of the city as fast as it can eighty percent of rain water flushes through those pipes little is recycled or used to recharge the aquifer. Water administrator Ramona giddy says, there's no time to waste in fixing the system. You're going to see gluing those. He knows it was the city just won't make to the twenty second century. He says, if we don't resolve this problem. And resolve it soon. Carrie Kahn NPR news, Mexico City.
