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!
Here’s a quick video of Mexico City (the Distrito Federal, or DF). Included in it are sights in the zocalo, the Angel of Independence, the Palace of Fine Arts, the Monument of the Revolution, and others.
If you’re looking for a great place to visit in Mexico City, and you’ve got a sweet tooth, you should definitely check out Churrería El Moro in downtown Mexico City. It’s on Lazaro Cardenas, also known as Eje Central, and the place is full of history.
It was established in 1935, and they sell churros and chocolate. In case you didn’t know, chocolate is from Mexico. So, the chocolate at El Moro is world famous. And the churros are delicious, too. They cost 3 pesos each, which is a great price for such a delicious snack. You can get a combo of chocolate and churros for a little more than 40 pesos.
So, if you’re visiting Mexico City, you should definitely take some time to go to Churrería El Moro.
