    My Apartment

    by John195123 Written Jul 8, 2005

    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"...

    Monterrey, the captial of Nuevo Leon

    by lucyguajardo Updated Sep 12, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

  • Spend an entire night out on...

    by salsa_verde Written Aug 26, 2002

    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...

    by marcmalano Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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).

    The City

    by John195123 Written Jul 8, 2005

    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.
