    Mexico - D.F., Cuernavaca, Taxco, & Tepotzlan

    These are obviously not my pictures. When I went to Mexico, I only had a 35mm. We didn't have digital in those days. So if I ever figure out how to scan them or whatever, I will put my own pics here.

    If you care anything about world history, you should visit this museum in Mexico City. Be sure you have a whole day (or at least a half day though) Also when I was there they didn't allow you to take in cameras but that may have changed. idk

    Common site in Mexico City. If you see this, you are looking at a taxi. Although some taxis look like regular old cars with prime accommodations like a wonderful stool instead of a passenger seat. lol. What an experience though. We even got front desk service to our hotel and by that I mean our taxi driver drove right up into our hotel right up to the front desk.

    If you do make it to Mexico City, be sure and go to the Zocalo. You can see the National Cathedral and well as the government buildings and the ancient ruins of Aztec pyramids that were built here before Cortes demolished them. You can also take note of leaning buildings and one side of the National Cathedral that is sinking. The ancient Aztec capital (Tenochtitlan) was built on top of Lake Texcoco long ago.

    and the mother of them all...Mexico City (D.F.). This is only one view. This city goes on and on and on.... Monster! There are roughly 20,500,000 people living in the former Tenochtitlan. You'll believe it too.

    Here you can see where Tepotzlan is. This is where I bought my little rain stick. Sooo wish I had bought one of the huge ones that were like 4 ft tall. I didn't know how in the world I would get that back on the plane though. You can also see Cuernavaca, D.F., & Taxco.

    Here you can find Mexico D.F. & Cuernavaca (the place I lived for a month). You can also see Acapulco to the southeast. We wanted to go there but a Tropical Storm was near at the time.

    Inside the Palacio de Cortes, Cuernavaca. These are the murals of Diego Rivera. There are more back behind this picture. He depicts the history of Mexico along the walls beginning with the great Aztec empire.

    This is the Government building in Cuernavaca. Lots of vendors hang out here. Beware of the little children who will chase you to sell you necklaces and chicle. lol

    This is typical of Cuernavaca, Mexico. Beautiful green grass and trees and flowers everywhere. It isn't called the "City of Eternal Spring" for nothing. Very mild temperatures.

    La Avenida de los Muertos - Avenue of the Dead. Also part of the Teotihuacan ruins. Teotihuacan is located just to the northeast of D.F. Very close. Well worth the visit.
