Valparaiso? this reminds me of suchitoto a bit, and i gotta say, i love latin america. i want to travel all over there one day. el salvador, mexico, guatemala, brazil… chile! oh yes.
Floating on one of these boats in the Gardens of Xochimilco was a great experience. I was especially excited that there was even a boat with my "Mexican" name...Sarita (Little Sarah!)
Mexico, D.F. got to stay in a hotel in the main plaza, El Zocalo. Coolest thing from this city (aside from simply BEING in Mexico City) was getting to see the catedral that was built ON TOP of ruins (like, for real, you could see them in the windows in the ground) and the plaza de tres culturas.. I'll put a picture up about that one!
