Ciudad de México
Centro Histórico
Esta capital que me engrandece con sus palacios, que me enamora con sus mil encantos, que me enloquece con sus beldades, y que me interesa con su misma indolencia y abandono.

This capital lifts me up with its palaces, makes me fall in love with its thousand charms, drives me crazy with its beauty, and interests me with its laziness and abandon.
