John Ross grew up reading poetry alongside jazz great Charlie Mingus and hitting the road with the likes of Jack Kerouac. After serving jail time for refusing to go to serve in Viet Nam, Ross relocated to south of the border, and went on to become the dean of American foreign correspondents in Mexico City. He shares insight on the complex city lovingly called ‘El Monstruo’ (the Monster).
