Mexico City by lux69aeterna Mexico City by lux69aeterna
Mexico City or Cuidad de Mexico is the capital of Mexico and the seat of the federal powers of the country. It is the largest metropolitan area in the Western Hemisphere, and the fifth in the world with a total of 21,2 million inhabitants.

The first settlements were founded on an island of Texcoco lake and named Tenochtitlan, 1325 AD. As the legend states, the Aztecs were looking for an eagle holding a snake in its beak, standing on a cactus to establish their capital. They found this on that island and ultimately the Aztec capital would fall in hand of the Spanish in 1521 after the siege of Tenochtitlan.

Mexico is a beautiful country, but very taboo as well. I haven't been to Mexico City yet, but I've been to Mexico a million times. It was the highlight of my childhood. I miss it.
