Mexico City, the "Chilango" Experience

with Juan C.

Juan C.

Mexico City is well know as a noisy, picturesque, fast city, also some say dangerous, and it is, but which big city isn´t? It´s way less dangerous than you imagine, but noisy, picturesque and fast, boy it is! Of course you know MxC has tons of museums, parks, malls, "fiesta" and food, but have you taken a ride on a bus speeding like was driving at Indy 500 to get there? Stopping by to grab a bite at any corner? Tequila is a must, but do you know what "pulque" is? My name is Juan Carlos Elizondo Orihuela, I´m a "Chilango" I walk all around the city, join me doing so and share a great experience in one of the most beautiful cities all over the world.
If you´d like to attend a Soccer game I suggest you to so on Sunday morning to watch Pumas play. Great experience.
*"Chilango" .- Slang for Mexico City´s inhabitant and local manners.

Breakfast. One of the best places to do it is Coyoacán, south bound, either a nice restaurant or just a "guajolota" (tamal special). Let´s walk around the hood ´till get Frida Khalo´s museum. If you can keep the pace walk little bit more up to "La Paloma Azul" a "pulquería". Pulque, an alcoholic beverage made from the fermented sap of the maguey (agave) plant. Aztec emperors were the exclusive ones to drink it. After some pineapple, oats, strawberry or some other season fruit pulque let´s ride the bus if you are brave enough or just take the metro up to downtown, Zócalo. Wanna eat more? Right there, at Mexico´s main square sitting on the floor grabbing a "Tlayuda" Oaxacan typical dish... Tortilla, bean, hot sauce, lima beans... Few blocks inside is a "vecindad" an pretty old building were Doña Bertha has her grocery´s and beer is cheep. MUNAL is just 10 mins walking by the way. More? Chapultepec, Xochimilco, Tlahuac, Ciudad Universitaria, Cineteca Nacional, Tlatelolco...
