    IF Illegals Really Want To Be American Citizens , Why Do They Celebrate Cinco De Mayo And Not Celebrate The 4th Of July ? Should they forsake their old holiday?

    • Curator says:

      They could care less about our Countries history. The illegal criminals that are already here only want our money. 99.9% of them send a good portion back to their motherland either to support their families drug habits or to feed their 15 kids. They only care about what they can get from the USA for free.

    Is 3 Nights Too Short A Stay For A Vacation In Mexico City? I’m planning on leaving the day after Thanksgiving (Nov 29) and returning on December 2nd. Looks like for a single person I’ll by paying around $1100 dollars and that does not include airport transfers and food. But I’m sure that it would be nice there…

    • Curator says:

      Even if you never leave the city you will have a busy three days or two and a half days depending on what time your flight home leaves.
      In one day you can visit Chapultepec Castle ( a real castle which houses the National History Museum), the Museum of Archeology, the Modern Art Museum and visit part of the upscale Polanco neighborhood which is right next to Chapultepec Park where all these things are located. You might want to have breakfast or lunch in Polanco. After you finish at Chapultepec you can go to the historical district of downtown. If you didn’t eat in Polanco there are lots of sidewalk cafés and restaurants or you can go to a genuine cantina where the food is free- as long as you are ordering drinks. While downtown you want to see the Cathedral and the Aztec Templo Mayor ruins which are next to it. From the plaza walk up Cinco de Mayo or Madero toward the Fine Arts Palace (Palacio de Bellas Artes) which is Mexico’s Carnegie Hall. It also houses a museum and contains many murals by painters such as Rivera and Siqueiros. Right now the Bellas Artes employees are on strike, but perhaps that will be resolved by the time you arrive. On the streets between the central plaza, or Zócalo, where the Cathedral and National Palace are and Bellas Artes there are numerous museums. On Avenida Cinco de Mayo you might want to duck into the Opera Bar. The drinks are expensive and selection of booze is poor and the food is mediocre BUT they have a bullet hole in the ceiling allegedly put there by Pancho Villa.
      The next day you can visit the village of Coyoacán in the south of the city. This area has trendy bars and restaurants and you can visit the Frida Kahlo museum and the Diego Rivera Museum. You can also buy crafts (and junk) at the craft market and pick up the good vibes in this liberal middle class part of the city long known as the home of Mexican intellectuals and artists. I almost forgot! The Leon Trotsky Home Museum is in Coyoacán where the Russian revolutionary lived in exile and was ultimately assassinated. After a morning and afternoon in Coyoacán you might be interested in spending the afternoon and evening in the Roma-Condesa area which is where the trendy and alternative lifestyle people gather. If you are into the gay lifestyle the Zona Rosa is right across Avenida Chapultepec from Colonia Roma and La Condesa.
      If you still have half a day before you leave you might just want to get to know the area your hotel is in. If you plan on visiting the massive Teotihuacan ruins in nearby Mexico State be advised that in public transport this takes most of a day.
      Other points of interest – Santa Fe Business District with its cosmopolitan shopping center is home to many ultra modern and futuristic buildings housing corporate headquarters of many of the most important companies in Mexico; Plaza de Toros (world’s largest bull ring), the enormous Estadio Azteca soccer stadium, Xochimilco floating gardens.

  • Triforce776 says:

    What Should I Write My Spanish Research Paper On? I need to write a research paper about Spanish culture, economy, history, politics, etc. What is the most interesting topic (for a college freshman) to write about besides quinceniera, day of the dead, cinco de mayo, and running of the bulls?

    The essay needs to be 2 pages SINGLE spaced and all in Spanish so it needs to be a topic that has a lot of information. I also need 3 different sources of research.

    Thanks!
