The Amateur Traveler talks to Ana Laura about her home city of Mexico City.
We will talk about food, museums, architecture, and history.
We will puzzle about why the tourists stay in the Zona Rosa and we will tell you where they should go including Coyacan and Xochimilco.
We will climb the world’s third-largest pyramid and eat street food. Discover this huge, bustling, diverse city. 20 million Mexicans can’t be wrong.
