Yesterday, we went to Xochimilco with our friends, the Torberts, their family, and Joel, a missionary in England (who used to live in Mexico City). We had a great time on the boats, listening to Mariachi music and eating quesadillas and other great Mexican food.

Xochimilco is a great place to go (despite the traffic to get there from the north end of the city), and it’s really fun if you want to experience Mexican culture.

Here are some pictures of Xochimilco, Mexico.

It cost us 160 pesos to rent the boat for an hour, and the vendors come alongside you in their own boat selling drinks, food, and entertainment. It’s like a Mexican Venice. We had a blast!
