Mexico, Part 1: Mexico City

Mar 8, 2011

I began my two week trip to Mexico flying into Mexico City with my mom to stay with my uncle just outside the city. While there, we visited Teotihuacan, Chapultepec Castle, the Zócalo, and the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Captions describe the pictures below.
