Mexico city , Mexico (Ciudad de Mexico)

Finally. To the main city of Mexico - Mexico city. The largest population is situated here. It is by far the state I love the most - because of its cost of living, its people, the things that are all around , the accessibility of the city.

My friend and I went to stay at our couchsufer friend's house - Rebecca where she picked us up from the metro.

And because she had to go to work, she gave us a brief detail on how to get back where we would have dinner together :)

So princess and I decide to make Frida museum our first stop. She is a legendary painter in Mexico. I love her work! Its filled with so much emotions and so much truth in her art.

Her miscarriageHer paralysis

Next we went to the Mexico history Museum - showing our Mexico exchange student card, we got in free. Thats what I love about Mexico - because you are a student here in Mexico, all things are either discounted or free!

It explained the different tribes in Mexico and its origins

And its different way of living for each state in Mexico

After all the readings and absorbing, we decide to do some shopping at the Artesian market. Walking to the destination, we popped in to the open market nearby for food. Nice!

My favourite corn - I miss it so much !

This is made out of blue corn. Its so good. I forgot what they call it. Its with Oaxacan cheese.

Fried silverline fish

After eating so much, we went to the Artesian market to do some shopping and to burn off some calories. haha.

The next day, we went to the well-known Teotihuacan - to get there we had to sit the metro to the bus station then change to a bus.
Reaching there, it is as if we had entered Egypt or something - the pyramids rose against the sky in splendor and grandeur.

We wanted to go to Taxco after Teotihuacan but the tickets ran out so we could only make it for Taxco the next day.

The next morning we left for Taxco where it is town known for its real silver - so we went mass shopping. Okay I didnt , he did. haha...
But it is worth it. Their engraving there was nice and not as costly as it would be in Singapore.
Go there however if you are fit enough to climb up and down the slopes.

I love Mexico city. Ciudad de Mexico :)
A video by discovery travels should you be interested to know :)
Shows a little of Lucha Libre which I found it quite amusing.haha
I miss blue tortillas! I miss! I miss!
And they went to the island of dolls. I wanted to go there but it was only my friend and I , and they wanted to charge me and her for the whole boat cost. too ex for me. Now I get to see it! Nice!

i miss Mexico city :)
