Congratulations Mexico! I can't wait to visit the amazing Mexico City :)

And, a big thank you to all the bidders, everyone who commented and
participated, and to the selection jury, steering committee, and Ellie.
This is the first year in a long time that I haven't been involved in the
Wikimania selection process, and I am very pleased to have passed the torch
to such capable hands :)
