Cinco, to be exact:
#1: The tempo: I love the mix of big city energy and a relaxed attitude.
#2. Parks and trees are everywhere—
these trees are my favorites; they look like something out of a fairy tale.
#3: The time: This is a city that never sleeps. Seriously. A night-owl like me could really get used to this.
#4. Who knew everyone in this city would speak my language? I don’t mean Spanish; I mean sweets. They are served at breakfast, lunch and dinner; just call me La reina de los dulces.
#5: Dulce de leche : a national treasure and the only thing that could potentially make me abandon chocolate. I expected to OD on flan— but that was before I tried this at a restaurant the other day: a crepe caramelized and smothered in dulce de leche.
If I don’t come back home, this is why.
