benito juarez internatonal

The earliest maps of Mexico city are the 1524 Nuremberg Map and the Uppsala Plan from 1555 ....They consist of very few features - main streets, large rectangular areas, a few scattered houses, boats and fish.On close inspection, the first maps of the city are nothing more than Cartesian reduction of space, diagrams imposed upon a territory which was, to a great extent, only water.....

....Those tears are a simple moist tribute to landing on that great desert lake fed by rivers that have dried up or been channelled underground, and which today seem like little more than empty, arid words ; Churubusco, Hondo, Magdalena, Chico, Colmena, Piedad, Mixcoac, Tacubaya.
