There are 18 million people here. We are staying on the 25th floor of a giant building in our cousins apartment. She has views of the city, and it basically looks like of Manhattan was 25 times larger than it is. Its sort of hallucinatory and futuristic in that in seems to never end, and a polluted haze rests over everything.
In spite of that, I like the city, it feels very distinctly south american, in that their are giant ferns everywhere and things that look like asparagus but inside have wierd banana goop.
Last night we had dinner with 15 cousins.
