    Basílica de la Vigen de Guadalupe

    August 6 in Mexico ⋅ 🌧 22 °C

    La basílica del la virgen de Guadalupe es uno de los puntos de interés más visitados de CDMX. Es un parque que alberga no solo el templo principal sino varios templos adjuntos, adornados con bellos jardines y monumentos. Tienen una capilla en el cerro de Teyepac, de donde se puede apreciar a lo lejos la vista de una parte de la ciudad.Read more

    My friend recommended

    July 11 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    I was recommended to visit the Bosque de Aragon and the zoo which is across the road.
    Having been to the main zoo in Mexico city i was a bit sceptical that this one was going to be sub-par, and it was in a few ways, but also brilliant in other ways.
    I am very pro zoo and i feel that they give people an opportunity to be inspired to save our animals, i find them to be educational for kids and overall a good experience.
    Yes, i understand that the animals live a life that is not 'normal' for them but soon we will have no animals - so this is the lesser of 2 evils in my opinion (also zoos provide an avenue to expand the gene pool for animals on the verge of extinction).
    So, here 99% of the animals are in good condition and the living areas are pretty good. They are not overcrowded and have plenty of shade and the environment is very similar to what the animals would live in normally.
    The exception is the 'old zoo' where it was an interesting experience to step back in time and see just how far zoos have come in terms of looking after the animals.
    Hippos in swimming pools, antelopes in caged areas with sheds for shade, and birds in aviaries way too small for the species. This was a bit of a downer but i still appreciated that a zoo which charges nothing to enter has to have some pitfalls, i mean who is covering the cost here. Not like Sydney Taronga zoo which is $50 to get in, with half the big name species.
    Another fun and interesting part of the day was venturing through the surrounding park, obviously at one point it was an amazing place, now it is filled with decrepit fun parks and buildings. It is very moody and great for photos. I really liked it, and won't surprise myself if i head back before i leave.

    Pastes

    July 29 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Los pasteles de hojaldre en Colombia se llaman pastes en México. Los hay de muchos rellenos, dulces, salados y por supuesto picantes. Estos los comimos antes de partir hacia Teotihuacan en la central de buses del Norte.

    Paste de Mole Verde y de Zarzamora con queso. $34 MXN - 6000 COP.

    Camino a Teotihuacan

    July 29 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    A la zona de las pirámides de Teotihuacan se puede llegar en tures desde CDMX, sin embargo estos son mucho más costosos que ir por su propia cuenta en bus.

    Nosotros llegamos a la central de buses del norte en Metro y desde allí tomamos un autobús que en más o menos 1 hora de recorrido nos llevó al pueblo de Teotihuacan y luego a la entrada de la zona arqueológica.
    Se compra pasaje de ida y regreso por $208 MXN para dos personas (38000 COP).

    Es recomendable llevar buena hidratación porque la zona arqueológica es extensa y no hay sombras para refugiarse del sol. En las afueras hay muchos restaurantes para desayunar o almorzar.

    El bus de regreso se toma en la vía cerca a la entrada del parque.

    Basilica von Guadalupe - Tradition

    November 19, 2016 in Mexico ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    Wir besuchten das wichtigste katholische Heiligtum Mexikos.

    An der Stelle, an der einem Indio im Jahr 1531 die Jungfrau Maria erschienen ist, wurde eine Basilika gebaut, zu der unzählige Gläubige aus ganz Mexiko pilgern.

    Auf der Straße kann man frisch gebackene Kekse kaufen.
