About the Author
Julie Doherty Meade grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and spent her childhood hiking, camping, and traveling throughout the Golden State. After graduating from college, she took her first trip to Mexico, where she was immediately drawn to the country's warm people and fascinating culture. The following year, Julie returned to Mexico and decided to extend her stay indefinitely.
For almost ten years, Julie lived, worked, and traveled throughout Mexico. She saw Zapatista leader Subcomandante Marcos speak to a crowd in San Cristobal de las Casas, helped run a fine-art gallery in San Miguel de Allende, and taught English to five-year-olds in Mexico City. During her years in the capital, she was schooled in advanced Mexican slang, developed a strong affinity for early-morning cafe con leche in old Chinese coffee shops, and spent hours seeking out the best bookstores, most interesting architecture, and tastiest bites in the city's diverse neighborhoods.
Julie currently lives in Brooklyn with her husband, Arturo, her son, Mariano, and her Chihuahua, Tequila. She writes and copyedits for several New York publications and visits Mexico every chance she gets. Julie is also the author of Moon San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato & the Bajio and Moon Living Abroad in Mexico.

Few caveats that you can just get online - Download the Metro & Metro Bus pdf on your phone. There are no maps available at stations. Other than that, this guide is a gem.
The maps are good, but would be greatly enhanced by better indicating where the subway goes. This guide shows stations (not very clearly), but not where the lines go. It also doesn't include a system map, which to me is a no-brainer (maybe copyright issues?). I took the affordable and easy to use Mexico City subway a lot and downloading a map helped me a lot; it would have been nice if I could have used this book for that too.
