Mexico City is one of the largest cities in the world and it sits in a valley surrounded by mountains and volcanoes, thus, the air pollution has raised to undesired levels. A couple of decades ago the authorities implemented measures to improve the air quality and since then the air is purer, while ozone and carbon dioxide levels fell. Even though the smog is seen over the city everyday, but it has no dangerous effects in visitors who will barely notice it.
Mexico City was established in the dry bed of Lake Texcoco and today is affected by the underground movements of earth; earthquakes are common phenomena here. After the catastrophic earthquake that took place in September 19th of 1985 all new buildings must adjust their structure to the criteria established by law and many old constructions were reinforced. No major building collapse has happened since 1985.
This amazing city has more than 20 million people living a dynamic and intense lifestyle, while diverse cultures coexist everyday at every corner, taking the subway and walking through the streets. Citizens are mostly descendents of Spanish and Amerindian. Although many native people from small communities have reached the city searching for opportunities in the last few decades, native Amerindian constitute less than one per cent of the city population.
