City will finally sleep

It's Semana Santa, or Holy Week, here in the predominantly Catholic megalopolis. There's a mad rush to get out of the city, since these all are vacation days here (except for journalists, of course). But for at least a couple of days, there will be less traffic, less people on the metro, and some quiet.

I've never spent a Semana Santa here in Mexico City, but I did get a little taste of the calmness during Christmas. After we came back from our holidays, the megalopolis was still dead. It was awesome. It's the best time to be a tourist and the best time to do the errands across town that always get put off.
