New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a Republican hopeful for 2016, stopped by to collect resume material which will bolster his rather anemic CV on international affairs, and of course his credibility as a candidate.
Yesterday Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg chatted with president Peña Nieto about expanding internet access in the country. Facebook is hugely popular with young Mexicans, and Zuckerberg wants to add to those 409 million user accounts.
