The weather forecast for Mexico City is calling for temperatures cooler than in Ohio, with highs in 70s and night time lows in the 50s. Back in the days when I was teaching, my trips to Mexico of course were mainly during summer vacation. My students would ask me, "Isn't it hot in Mexico in the summer?", and I would answer, "I go to Mexico to escape the hot Ohio summers." In Mexico, temperature is all about elevation. In the coastal lowlands, it is, indeed, terribly hot. But in Mexico City and the rest of the central highlands, the weather is very temperate, and the locals complain about the heat if it is above 80 degrees.
It has been many years since I have been in Mexico in August... the middle of the rainy season. I hope that the rain will not be too persistent, and that I will still be able to do plenty of exploring in the city.
My next post will be from south of the border!
