Whenever I’m in a new city in Latin America, there’s only one thing on my mind:
Is this somewhere I would like to live?
You see, I have a somewhat odd life plan at the moment. I want to do extended stays (3 months or more) in the region for at least the next few years.
This makes me a bit different than the average backpacker who can gather all the information he needs from Lonely Planet.
I’m forced to dig deeper.
So, without further ado, it’s time for another one of my Latin American city showdowns. In this post I will be comparing the “City of Palaces” (Mexico) with the “City of Kings” (Lima) to determine which is the better city for an expat to live in.
