the wikitravel mexico city article problem

Wikitravel’s Mexico City articles are full of information that is only relevant to people who live here or who are coming to visit from less developed and (even) less cosmopolitan places.

Nobody visiting from the US or Europe would ever waste a moment at most of the places mentioned at—certainly at none of the malls.

What it’s really about, of course, is signaling. How else can we explain this disgrace of a paragraph?

Although it is easy to assume that Mexico City is the world capital of tacos, you can find almost any kind of food in this city. There are regional specialties from all over Mexico as well as international cuisine, including Japanese, Chinese, French, Polish, Italian, Argentinean, Belgian, Irish, you name it. The main restaurant areas are located in PolancoCondesaCentroZona Rosa, along Avenida Insurgentes from Viaducto to Copilco and more recently Santa Fe.

Yeah, this city is cosmopolitan and wikitravel readers will now know it!

What we have here is a somebody is wrong on the internet problem and as such I don’t think it has a direct solution. But I do think it’s solvable. I’ll write about that later, probably months or years from now.
