The City of Hope.
Mexico City, the capital of Mexico, lies in a valley surrounded by mountains and volcanoes. Before the Spanish colonized the territory, the area where the city is located was home to the Aztec tribe, who built their metropolis on top of a lake; later, the Spanish colonists would build over the Aztec city covering the water. Eventually the area dried up, but Mexico City still stands over the bed of the empty lake; the soft base beneath and the heavy buildings above make it so that the city sinks a little each year. Mexico City, also known by Mexicans as Distrito Federal (Federal District), is home to the federal powers, and as federal territory it doesn’t belong to any of the 31 Mexican states. The city has grown exponentially, spanning to the neighboring municipalities of bordering states. The population of the city and metropolitan area is now at 21.2 million people.
