By H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellow Amber N. Wiley

Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day.

Since I am addressing a forum of intellectuals with a keen interest in history and culture, many of you might already know this fact. I might have heard it a time or two in life, only to forget, and then be reminded again in Mexico City. I am not ashamed to admit that. Why is this tidbit of information important to the history of architecture and urbanism in Mexico City, you ask? It has everything to do with memory of place, transnational dialogues, regional differences, and most immediately, place names.
