I’m just back from a week of business trip to Mexico City. This was my first time in Mexico and I’ve heard all the rumors of it being a very dangerous city. I must say that I’ve seen a very very big city, vibrant, busy, with a lot of car trafic, but at no point I had any fear of being robbed or molested.
Two things have marked me during my stay. First, the city is very green. There are lots of trees, plants, flowers everywhere. All main avenues are borded by trees. It’s like mother nature is trying to tell us that she still exists despite the concrete and buildings.
The other thing is that at any time of the day or the night, there are people in the street, trying to earn a little bit of money, selling water, tissues or balloons.
The food was amazing. I enjoyed tacos, fresh fruits, some argentinian bife, jalapeños… Spicy, but not “mucho picante”. As well as beers like Victoria, Bohemia, Dox Equis, Modelo… And tequila of course !
Other photos from my trip are on Google+
By the way, we did work this week in Mexico.
Below is a photo of the screen as we’ve finished importing the customers’ data in OpenDJ (the data includes a few hundreds of groups, each averaging 40 000 members). I like this kind of performance number ! And I will probably say more about the hardware and settings to achieve that in a future post.
I shall say a big thank you to our partner in Mexico and Latin America : NoLogin. They’ve made everything to make my stay safe and comfortable, including with jalapeños and tequila !
I hope the few companies I visited will turn into customers. I’d like to come back again in Mexico. These 5 days have just gone to0 fast. And I’ve just started to get into lutta libre 😉
