    by the bowlshaped appearance of the topography I'd guess Mexico City, but it don't seem as dense as I would picture it.

    Monterrey is definitely right. Good Job! Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico the capital of industry in Mexico. Monterrey is the 3rd biggest city in Mexico, but its metropolitan area is the 2nd biggest.

    I was also going to say Monterrey.

    Just think of how busy I-35 would be if the border checkpoints in the Loredo area weren't there, with all of the traffic between Monterrey and San Antonio (and points beyond). Loredo is almost exactly halfway between Monterrey and San Antonio.

    It gets VERY INTERESTING very quickly when one starts pondering the geography of what is beyond the border checkpoints (and if I could take easy screenshots of some of those high-res Google maps images, you'ld NEVER guess some of the air photos from Mexico).
