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.

:) Mexico being taboo? I dont really get the picture though... Maybe taboo for Americans?

I think ill go back in february... First work one more month in Costa Rica-Nicaragua-Panama, then go back home to rest, see friends and enjoy life... Buy a new camera, computer and all... And travel again but for fun this time...

Haha....klopt, ben op dit moment niet zo bezig met de fotografie, druk met werk en met schilderen etc. en kreeg vorige week bericht dat mijn neef aan een hartstilstand is overleden op 31 jarige leeftijd, dus van de week de begrafenis, dat houd me op dit moment ook bezig het is gewoon niet te bevatten:(
Maar als alles weer in rustig vaarwater komt dan gaan we het weer oppakken...:) Soooo...stay tuned

Ik wens je veel sterkte toe Els... Het leven is niet altijd even gemakkelijk. En al die dingen kunnen inderdaad zo lang wachten tot jij er weer zin in hebt. Houd je goed, en een dikke knuffel.
