Mexico 2005: Mexico City
After Mérida, we flew into Mexico City for the second half of our trip. We had another set of family there, and we also went on a day trip to the ancient site of Teotihuacán.
From the Eyewitness Travel Guide for Mexico: "Mexico City is a huge, hectic, overpopulated, and often smog-ridden metropolis, as well as the center of commerce and government for the country. Yet despite the problems of modern city life, the oldest capital of the New World is rich in both indigenous and colonial history. The aptly named Historic Center was the site of the Aztec capital, while the elegant Reforma district mixes colonial architecture with striking contemporary buildings. Allow at least two or three days to explore the city in full."
