Last Stop - Xochimilco

April 20, 2012  •  1 Comment

All good things must always come to an end! We have come full circle on our photographic journey of Mexico. We arrived in Mexico City and I just had to visit Xochimilco. The colorful boats where still a vivid memory of my childhood trip to Mexico City. 

I didn't want to leave Mexico without visiting Xochimilco. Xochimilco is one of the sixteen "delegaciones" or suburbs of Mexico City. The canal system is a popular destination for many tourists. It's a relaxing way to spend a peaceful Sunday afternoon with family and friends. 

Our first order of business was to pick our barge or "Chnampa". We negotiated a very modest two hour ride. You can just sit back and relax or higher a Mariachi for entertainment. Food vendors are everywhere so you can enjoy the delights of the local flavors.
