Teaser Tuesdays: From Alaska to Tierra del Fuego: Across the Americas in Two Years by Michael Boyny

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. The idea is to open your current read to a random page and share a few sentences. And try not to include spoilers!

Randomly chosen from this beautiful coffee table book:

In the days of our stay, we experience a city as fragmented as its history is fascinating: repulsive and charming, poverty-stricken and glamorous, terrifying and endearing – probably as full of contradictions as the Mexican soul itself.

The city in question is Mexico City, and I imagine that this list of contradictions is an accurate start, at least.
