Isko Moreno discovers: Manila is like Mexico City

There’s more that binds these two cities beyond teleserye dramas.

Manila Mayor sat down with Mexican Ambassador Gerardo Lozano Arrendondo, who paid a courtesy visit to the city hall on Wednesday.

The politiko found himself discussing how he cracked down on illegal vendors who have taken over roads and sidewalks in the city, and was surprised to hear that the foreign envoy can relate to his woes.

“The Mexican Ambassador said he thought the Mayor was describing the situation in Mexico City,” Moreno said, drawing parallels in the two capital cities.
