Favorite thing: I got an apartment for $550 USD a month, $50 more than it should have been because I changed the lease to run only five months. It had no A/C, no heat... was very basic for a two room apartment, and, really, just the way I wanted it. Ridiculously hot at night, frigid in the January mornings, but comfortable, especially with cheap computer prints of my photo work on the walls.
Fondest memory: Mis Amigos, really, but I did like the apartment, right above a pharmacy. It's weird writing pharmacy with a "ph"...
Favorite thing: During november most panteons in Mexico ar decorated with flowers because we celebrate the day of all deads in november 2
Fondest memory: Take a tour trought one of the local panteons, specially november 2 to see entire families decorating, cleaning and even eatin over the tumbsRelated to:

Monterrey, the captial of Nuevo Leon
Favorite thing: It is considered one of the three most important cities in Mexico, for its great managerial and financial vigor. The city was founded in 1596 , but by the year 1846 the population was of less than 300 persons. It is located in a valley next to the famous Cerro de la Silla.
Thou its 400 years of existence, is a very modern city with no buildings older than 200 years
Most of the people in Mexico...
Favorite thing: Most of the people in Mexico are catholics, this is the Monterrey cathedral built in 1770, right in downtown, you can eonjoy the olds northern style, inside you can see novohispanic XIX century paints
Spend an entire night out on...
Favorite thing: Spend an entire night out on the town. (if you are a teenager or into that)
Start by hitting some bars, then if you want move on to antros (clubs). Wind down at another bar or hit the parks with a group of friends.
Fondest memory: One night i went out with my two girlfriends. we started at Applebee's with Electric Lemonaids- alcoholic. Then we went driving all around the city. we didn't find any antro we liked (too long of lines, too many of our regular places were closed for construction) so we went to Nirvana a hot bar located at Plaza Fiesta. (big mall). We were there until around 1am, when our guy friends called and met us there. We brought them back in with us. Stayed until closing at 2:30 and then went to a park near the mall. Stayed there until around 5:30am. then went home. I would reccomend sleep during the day and go out all night!!! unless you want to see the sights...?? :)
Visit Las Grutas de Garcia...
Favorite thing: Visit Las Grutas de Garcia (Caverns). First you climb the steep side of a mountain in a cable car. Then once inside, expect a lot of stairs on your guided tour to get to the various areas like La Capilla (Chapel), El Teatro (Theater), Salon de Aire (Air Hall), and La Mano del Muerto (Deadman's Hand).
Favorite thing: It's a really neat city, but very Americanized... very modern. It's sad to see Chili's, Applebee's and other chain places there, but at least they can be escaped.
Favorite thing: The flowers market is brought to us by people of sout and central part of Mexico, where the conditions to grown plants are betterRelated to:
