Xochimilco

October 05, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Xochimilco is not far from Mexico City.  It was built on floating  islands by the ancient Aztecs to gain manmade farmland (chinampas).  Now it is a pleasant place for Sunday afternoon family outings.   There are vendors, refreshments (refrescos) both soft drinks and beer and mariachi bands and food.  This photogrid shows some of the colorful rental boats.  Many are named after a wife or sweetheart.
