Bold text s going on here -- I'll investigate. -- Evan 14:02, 5 Sep 2003 (PDT)

Is there a wiki-language way to add anchors to individual restaurants (or any other piece of text, for that matter)? I'd like to link to the restaurants here from external websites. -- Federico 2003/09/08

I think you're going to have to link to the whole restaurant page. Wikitravel isn't really geared towards highlighting specific businesses. Check out the Wikitravel:Goals and non-goals page for more info. Thanks! Majnoona
Oh, it was just for linking to stuff from my web log; things like, "I went to such and such restaurant" with links to the description in Wikitravel. In the future this may be useful if people want to write travelogues with links to the references they grabbed from Wikitravel. -- Federico

So, we've kinda decided to break up huge cities by district rather than by restaurants, sights, etc. I moved some of the restaurants on this page to the appropriate district page, when I could figure it out. A lot of these are still on here, though. Folks familiar with them should start moving them to the district pages, if possible. Eventually I'd like to delete this page. -- Evan 09:43, 27 Nov 2003 (PST)

"Rich French Past"

Outside of the battle of Puebla, between Mexican and French forces, what exactly constitutes Puebla's "Rich french past"?-- 23:35, 6 November 2006 (EST)

If nobody can explain this "rich french past" to me in a few days, I intend to remove it. It's plain ridiculous.-- 20:16, 13 November 2006 (EST)

The CIty has no rich french past, it was invaded by the french. It has certain architectural influences brought by France by President Porfirio Diaz in the late XIX and XX century. This text has been deleted.Fabz 12:32, 14 April 2007 (EDT)


I just did several reverts to deal with vandalism in this article, but am not sure I got it all. Some of the nonsense seems to have been there a while so that a straight revert/rollback wasn't catching it. Please let me know if I missed something. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 21:08, 23 May 2006 (EDT)

Mexico City/Polanco

I found that article on the list of orphaned pages; it exists but nothing links to it. Checking the Mexico City article, I find it lists Polanco as a district, and gives a link to an article with quite a different title, but containing a description of Polanco. Can someone who knows the area\please sort this out? Pashley 08:33, 8 January 2008 (EST)

I just moved everything on the Miguel Hidalgo page over to the Polanco page last night. There's some more info on what I did and why on the Polanco talk page. psychofish 22:25, 29 July 2008 (EDT)

Night Clubs and recent changes

Hello. I am visiting Mexico at the moment and have done so many times, and I believe this article is very well written and informative. There's some things missing though. First of all, the top rated night clubs at the moment in the city other than the Bulldog Cafe are the Night, the Txhai (both in the San Angel zone) the Velvet (in South Insurgentes avenue) and the Mansion (Colonia Juarez). Also, it mentions that only brown dressed policemen can pull a car over. This is no longer true as a recent law reform now enables any police car to pull you over.

I'm not at all familiar with Mexican law or the police, but I did copyedit the section yesterday and left that in. I'm not all that comfortable editing the meaning of the text if I don't actually know what it is I'm saying, but if you do, feel free to change it yourself! that is the point of wikitravel! psychofish 22:28, 29 July 2008 (EDT)

Unsure of proper template

Hi. I'm working on Mexico City, and this appears underneath Buy- Mexico City is a huge city, so all individual listings should be moved to the appropriate district articles. Please help sort them out if you are familiar with this city.

I'm assuming that it is appearing in the article because the tag is wrong, but I'm unsure how to fix it. Can someone please fix it so that it only appears within the edits? Many thanks. --MarinaK 16:31, 17 September 2008 (EDT)MarinaK.

Flu in Mexico City

According to major news services, there have been fears of an outbreak of a serious strain of flu in Mexico City. I recommend a warning box be place on the main Mexico City article. See this page for details. 13:14, 26 April 2009 (EDT)
