Characterization of Content
The posts are engaging and focused on Mexico City. Jim Johnston, the blogger, talks about his experiences in Mexico City. Some posts start focused on one subject but tend to go on to focus on something else. The post about the Metro start out about Jim's comparison of the New York City Metro and the Metro of Mexico City. Then he goes on to talk about the vendors and what he bought while looking at them. He ends with talking about learning new things from only paying two pesos for riding the metro. He doesn't go into depth about any of the subject he posts about. In a recent post he even add a link to a different blog instead of going into more depth.
