Estimated reading time: 0 minutes, 31 seconds

It appears that every couple of months, some pseudo-Hipster publicationwill suddenly discover my hometown, and write a piece (usually in English) about how it’s “the hottest place” for the bohemian trendy expat set. Usually when this happens, many of my fellow liberal, college-educated chilango millennials will fawn over the article, getting the validation they so desperately crave. Suddenly, all the anxieties over endless daily commutes seem to disappear with a foreigner telling them they live in “the coolest city of current year”. But personally, I find that this sort of nonsense makes me cringe.
