    Mexico City NAFTA protest

    Mexico City Protest

    Your timing would have to be just right to see something like this, but if your there go check it out. I was able to go to a protest in Mexico City while I was staying in Mexico and it was unbelieveable. I've never seen so many people in my life. We went with a local political activist group and marched with them. The march went from the angel of independence to the Zocalo. If you know nothing about NAFTA's effect's in Mexico or the Campesino's I want to encourage you to educate yourself. It's good to know what's going on in the world.

    Taxco is an amazingly beautiful little town south of Mexico, half-way between there and Acapulco. If you have time, you should see this place! Please go to my Taxco page for more info.

    The outskirts of Mexico City

    Mexico City is an enormous place .
    You can drive for hours and in the outskirts you have lots of Colonias where you have also regretfully the more poor neighbourhoods.

    One of the coolest things I saw was the Aztec Indians dancing in front of the Governments Palace. They’re not always there, but look for them, it’s well worth it.
