Xochimilco Never Gets Old
We spent an afternoon at Xochimilco. I took a boat ride back in March with the Tultepec crew, but this time we left from a different harbor closer to the center of town. There was a lot more traffic!
Many of the boats were vendors selling beer or food.
We passed by several nurseries, including a few that were on boats:
Some boats had mariachi bands; they would tie up to your boat and sing.
The whole place is a huge party!
Speaking of party, it was Christian's birthday... time for mariachi!
The boat stopped at a market so we could browse around a little. The girls bought "atrapanovios", basically a chinese-fingertrap with a leash. They worked
They apparently have other uses too:
By the way, don't bother taking the metro to Xochimilco. It takes far, far too long. A cab ride from downtown is 20 minutes and costs the equivalent of about $13 USD.
San Francisco to Panama
and back... eventually?
