Have another drink-just make sure you buy something

Everywhere you go in Mexico City the people are very warm and friendly. Also, to warm you up for the sale they offer beer, tequila and of course tacos. They are very funny and have wonderful hearts. They are very giving. We often saw our guide, buying little things from the needy on the street.

The beginning of the tour in the heart of Mexico City

Mexico City was built on and now over a lake. The Aztecs saw a sign of the Eagle eating the Snake and built their temples and city around 1315 AD. Then in 1521 AD Hernan Cortez and Spain conquered Mexico City and tore down the Pyramids and built Roman Catholic Churches. Any who did not join died.
