Jessica Simon serves as Special Assistant to Acting Department Spokesman Robert Wood. In this video, she comments on the ride in the press van from the airport to the hotel in Mexico City, Mexico.

So we are in the press van, we just got off the plane. Hi, guys. ... And we are en route through the streets of Mexico City. It’s a little bit of a bumpy ride, so hope you guys don’t get motion sickness. And we are headed to the hotel, where the bulk of the press will sit down to file stories based on the briefing the Secretary did on the plane. And the TV crew that is traveling with us will go with the Secretary to her bilateral meetings with the Foreign Secretary and the President, because there are what we call camera sprays at the top of each of those meetings.

So, bienvenido (welcome) to Mexico City.
